Embroidery Tip

  • Some embroidery machines and designs force a needle drop in the center of the design as the first stitch. While this is not an issue when stitching on most fabric, it will show on paper, vinyl, leather, and other non-woven items. If that hole will not be covered by stitches, manually advance the design to begin at the second stitch.
