Hello lovely people.
This isn't the toy I was waiting for. That's a button hole attachment.
This is a device I've had forever but I JUST NOW started to give it a try.
When I acquired this, I didn't think I had the right adaptors to use it. That and I was intimidated. I get that way when it comes to these big devices.
The Deluxe Monogrammer makes letters 1 1/2" tall. The letters are on individual cams, and the monogrammers don't provide all the cams with the device. I've looked online and have found some the ones I don't have (I need about 10 to complete the alphabet), but I have my initials already, SMJ, and a flower detail so that's good to start.
The first step is to make the positing with the template.
Then you sandwich the fabric between a paper stabilizer (what they recommend) and the foot of the device.
I found the more I practiced that if I delicately held down the fabric, I wouldn't get much shift.
Then you just peel off the paper.
Playing around I think that using the mid range widths and stitch lengths of my machine is the best for this size monogram. Now that I know that, I can't wait to put letters on EVERYTHING!!
And Vintageville is on it's way. I'm mid episode so rest assured.
Thanks and have a great day!!
