  1. I painted on fabric and would like to embroider words using my embroidery machine. The Viking people were no help knowing is it possible to do without damaging the machine and what process should I use. Can you help?

    Thanks

      Hi Judy
      Textile artists do this all the time – it will not damage your machine as far as I know, unless you sew over super thick paint and you tax your machine too much. You need soft fabric paint done without it being too thick on the surface. If the the paint is too thick the machine may refuse to move and you may also get holes. Don’t use puff paints or dimensional paints. But otherwise it should be fine. Ensure that painted surface has dried fully for one week or even more. Use a cut away stabilizer on the back and embroider. Hope this is what you were looking for. Here is the page on painting on fabric.

  2. wow, you are such an expert with clothing, fabrics and all kinds of designs. Hats off to you! Even a novice like me who could not even hold a needle properly can now claim that stitching and embroidery are a hobby to me.
