Embroidery Tip

  • To control loose thread tails on spools, wrap them with strips of Hugo’s Amazing Tape. Simply cut the tape slightly longer than the diameter of the spool. The tape must be stretched around the spool with the end of the tape pressed firmly against the beginning of the tape. The tighter you stretch the tape, the greater the holding power. Both ends of the tape must be stretched and be in complete contact with the tape.


To inspire and nurture personal creativity and productivity by connecting embroiderers and digitizers with innovative, high-quality products and information that significantly elevate their enjoyment and experience while maximizing the use of technology. In other words, more toys and more fun!
