It is quite likely that if you have purchased a Brother PE770 embroidery machine you have done some machine embroidery before. However, some people don’t want to buy a combination sewing and embroidery machine ant this may be the first time you have used a dedicated machine.
Firstly, it is really important to choose the fabric you will be embroidering carefully. You should not use fabric that is too thick, otherwise the machine may miss stitches, the needle may bend or the fabric may pull out of place. Any of these incidents will result in a disappointing job. You can check that your fabric is not too thick by raising the needle to the top position and slide your fabric underneath the embroidery foot. If there is an obvious space between the foot and the fabric, it is suitable to use.
If you embroider fabric that has an uneven nap such as towels, you are well advised to use a layer of stabilizer on top of the towelling. If you don’t, the loops of the fabric may show proud through the embroidery stitches, which of course you don’t want.
