What does the Makerplace provide? 

What do I need? 

Customers will need to bring their own fabric or materials to embroider on. You will need a design file, which you can create on the machine or bring in your own file. All design files must be a .PES file.

How do I use it? 


  1. Insert your fabric into the embroidery hoop. Make sure to use the proper stabilizers in your hoop as well. The Makerplace has various stabilizers for purchase. See our price list for more details.

  1. Attach the embroidery frame to the machine. Raise the presser foot and while lightly holding the lever on the frame holder to the left, align the two pins on the embroidery frame holder with the mounting brackets on the frame. Then press the frame holder with the mounting brackets until a click is heard. 

  1. Plug in the embroidery machine and turn it on. Select which pattern category you would like to use in the pattern type selection screen. Press the left and right arrow buttons to display the desired pattern on the screen. 

  1. Select your design and then check to make sure the pattern is in the right position so that it will be sewn in the right place. The embroidery hoop will move to show where the pattern will be sewn. 

  1. The display screen will show you what thread colors are needed for the pattern. Thread the machine with the first color, then lower the presser foot. Press the Start/Stop button to begin embroidery. 

  1. After five or six stitches, hit the Start/Stop button again to trim the thread. Press the button again to resume embroidering. Let the machine finish embroidery the first color.

  1. Repeat steps five and six for the remaining colors in the pattern. 

  2. Remove the hoop from the machine and carefully remove the excess stabilizer from the fabric.

Tips and tricks 

Make sure that you only have one layer of fabric in the working area. This may mean you need to turn your clothing items inside out in order to fit well.
