There’s something new at Janome Canada. We have added several items to the sewing room. In this post, we will tell you about some of the Madeira products. Janome is the only distributor of Madeira products in Canada.
There’s nothing better than testing new products, but since it’s summer and we want to enjoy the beautiful weather, I got three things done in one: the t-shirts are embroidered, the stabilizer is tested as well as the thread.
The MADEIRA cut away stabilizer is not completely removed from the fabric. It stabilizes the design during and after embroidery, and it also prevents the fabric from slipping. The excess stabilizer is removed by cutting around the embroidery. The non-woven ‘Super Stable’ is thermosticky and is ideal for stretchy fabrics. To get a good result, it must be ironed on the back of the fabric and inserted into the hoop at the same time as the garment.
Have you ever used quilting patterns for embroidery? These are from the AcuDesign app in the ‘Expressions of Texture’ category. I embroidered these t-shirts with the same method and stabilizer but to give texture to the designs, I slipped a piece of cotton fabric stuff under the embroidery (the photo does not do justice to the result). And to embellish these simple patterns, I glued thermosticky beads.
Here I practiced the ‘Auto Fit hoop’ function, the AcuDesign app, which generates stitches automatically according to the size of the chosen hoop. I embroidered both patterns with MADEIRA 100% polyester thread colour 1511.
