What kind on machine do you use?

I purchased a babylock Elegeo Plus about 10 months ago and LOVE it. I am finding I am getting limited by the size of the hoop. Is anyone else experiencing this issue.

I use rayon thread. Florina is one of my brands and also use sulky. I also have use some polyester and I don't have any problems with shrinkage. It might be your stabilizer or how the tension is set. Also are really putting tight into your hoops? That is another thing I always check. Hope these works.

I am not sure which forum to post my question on... Hi my name is Darla.  :)

What kind of thread do you use in machine embroidery?

I haven't found that I can incorporate embroidery in a quilt yet because it alway seems to shrink.  I have have only used the rayon thread in my machine.  Does rayon shrink?   After I finish the stitching it looks great until I press or iron it with steam.  I don't want to put it all in a quilt if it's not going to look good after a washing, so I wet it and iron it for a test.  Any suggestions?

I have an embroidery project waiting for me to get tired of machine quilting for a while.  I sent to Australia for the designs.  I will post pictures when it is under way.  Thanks Marian for starting this group.

Greetings!  :)

Your peacock is beautiful Joanne.  I have the Baby Lock Sophia.  I din't have much money and want to be able to try embroidery as well as have a better machine than I had previously.  I have wanted to and have practiced much but have never been happy enough to put design in a quilt.

Curious.  Do you all use Rayon thread or Polyester?  Thanks~

Hi Linda.  I also have done a lot of baby books with my embroidery machines.  Just finish one for my niece who will be 1 next month.  Will be making a few more for my granddaughter.  I love how they come out.  Also making a landscaping quilt with embroidery applique.  This should be interesting.

Hi Leann.  Here is a picture of a peacock quilt I design on Eq and the center panel was all embroider from my machine.

I have a Viking Topaz (about a year now) and have thoroughly enjoyed embroidering and use it for quilting sometimes too.
