How to Get Started with Fashion Embroidery

In this tutorial I’m sharing everything you need to know to get started with fashion embroidery. We’ll go over supplies and notions, how to transfer your designs onto fabric, as well as setting up your embroidery hoop. I share demo’s on how to trim your floss skeins into two different lengths, hooping, wrapping your embroidery hoop with twill tape, as well as starting and stopping with waste knots and the long tail method and weaving in your ends and trimming. Join me as we go over the basics of embroidery!
