Choosing The Right Embroidery Machine Thread

As any good designer knows, artistic projects can be extremely personal and artists can be very picky! Artists are constantly looking for the perfect materials to use in their creations. When these creations involve embroidering, choosing the right embroidering machine thread is very helpful in achieving a certain look for an artist's projects. The good news for artists is that other arts and crafts enthusiasts all over the Internet share this drive to find that perfect texture, size, color, etc. thread and they can provide much detailed information. Here are some basic tips to help any new designer or artist create a masterpiece!

There are many different types of embroidery machine thread available, including rayon, cotton, polyester, and silk threads. Rayon is a very popular choice for embroidery machine thread because it has a proven track record of not fraying or breaking during stitching and thus jamming machines. It is also a bit shiny and most artists like this. Due to its popularity it is the most widely available type of embroidery machine thread and comes in a huge variety of colors. Polyester thread is a runner-up for best choice. It is much the same as rayon thread but less expensive and more resilient. It can even withstand chlorine bleach!

Cotton is far less popular as an embroidery machine thread owing to the fact that it comes in a thread spun so thinly that it can snap under the pressures of high-speed embroidering machine settings. This is very easily remedied by simply choosing a 30-50 wt cotton thread (the higher the wt number, the thinner the thread) and when this is done, cotton is a lovely choice. Silk threads have been called "the aristocrat of specialty threads" because of the beautiful shine and extremely vibrant colors the thread can soak up. Silk is more expensive than almost any other thread and more difficult to find because of this.

Embroidery can be a very good way to spruce up a fabric or make specialty clothing, and using an embroidery machine makes it doable in terms of time. I encourage any artist or designer who would like to get his/her feet wet to shop around and visit communities online where users will have their creations displayed. See for yourselves the beautiful infusions that choosing the right embroidery machine thread can help create and try your hand at creating a work of art with embroidery today!
