How to Machine Embroider on Ribbon with Metallic Thread

Embroidering on ribbon presents a few problems: ribbon cannot be securely hooped between the rings of the hoop, accurate design placement is difficult, and the tight weave is not conducive to the additional thread applied by embroidery. With a little know-how, you can easily surmount these problems. Watch this video on how to do it!

These techniques work well for other narrow embroiderable items like dog collars, sashes and headbands.
