Introduction to Embroidery
What is embroidery?
(em-broi’da-re): The art of adorning or embellishing: to decorate with ornamental needlework. Today, this means adding dollar value to garments by embellishing them with names, corporate logos and sports symbols, to name a few. Embroidery is more than fashion or trend. It has been a form of class distinction since the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs.
What is computerized embroidery?
Specialized embroidery machines have been designed to work with data from a computer. This data instructs the machine to stitch a particular design, determines the correct stitching order, indicates when to trim threads, and many other functions. In only a few minutes, the computerized embroidery machine will stitch a design that would take your grandmother a week to do by hand…and embroider with precision accuracy that no human can match for near perfect quality!
How is computerized embroidery made?
The artwork for embroidery design is entered into the computer. The computer transfers the robotics instructions necessary for stitching the design to the MONOGRAMMING machine. The machine operator places the item, such as a sweatshirt or ball cap on the machine with a holder or hoop. The operator also chooses the colors of thread appropriate to the design. Once the “set up” has been performed, stitching may begin by pressing the “Start” button on the machine. It will precisely and efficiently stitch the design. A typical logo on a ball cap may take five minutes or so to stitch, roughly a dozen caps an hour.
