Playing With The Embroidery Machines At Work

Well, I’ve been making some stuff for the store I work at, and I wanted to work with some variegated thread. I’m beyond in love! I also played around with Viking’s 6D software… It’s actually pretty easy. I designed the 2 hearts, and the “When You Wish…” piece myself. It was actually surprisingly easy.

I Got Some New Embroidery Thread… It’s Variegated!

So we started carrying a new thread at the shop I work at, and they have this line called ‘Mirage’ and it is all randomly dyed variegated thread, so it is very blend-able. I bought more, but I haven’t had the chance to do anything with it yet. I was kind of skeptical because it was rayon, and I’m not a huge fan of rayon thread, but it holds up quite nicely after being washed, so I broke down and bought some! I’m not sure what I’m going to do with these fun new variegated threads, but I’ll figure something out!
