Flex Foam Stabilizer and Hello Sunshine

Flex foam is what we use behind the dimensional pinwheels in the embroidery version of hello sunshine. Companies such as Pattens by Annie and Bosal make this. This is a foam that is about 1/8 to 1/4″ thick. Then there is ShapeFlex which is a different product and as mentioned by others, is great to avoid puckering. You iron it to the back of your fabric, then use another stabilizer behind it.

USB vs CD

Older machines may not have the ability to read USB. Some machines will not work, due to storage limits. When you add the PDF instructions to that USB, they also become quite large. Also, if a machine is trying to “read” all the file types on the USB, this can cause problems. Many computers are no longer having CD drives — while that is true, many are also not including USB drives. We use an external drive for both CDs and USBs. Having an external drive is inexpensive and the surest way to get your designs to your computers, no matter what model you have. We will continue to research this option and should we find out something differently in the future (technology always changing) we will include our findings.

What kind of needle do we use?

There is not one specific brand we use. For most embroidery we use a 75/11 embroidery needle. When stitching wording we use a Topstitch needle in a 80/12 or 90/14. When stitching puffy foam or zippers or a heavier fabric we use a Sharps 80/12 or 90/14. The Topstitch needle has a bigger eye and is better when using a thicker thread. If thread is fraying or breaking – change needle. The needle may be slightly bent and is causing the fray or break.

How do I use GlitterFlex?

GlitterFlex Ultra is a glittery material that can be used in place of applique fabric to create stunning, ultra sparkly creations. It is fusible and can be cut away easily with applique scissors. It adheres to cotton, uncoated polyester, fabric blends, wool and linen.

Application Instructions:
1. Sew a tight running stitch as a placement outline on the garment.
2. Cut a piece of GlitterFlex Ultra slightly larger than your design.
3. Peel back the clear plastic sheet off from the glitter page and discard.
4. Lightly spray the back side with a temporary adhesive and place on garment.
5. Embroider the design with a simple running stitch to tack it into place.
6.Remove from machine, but not from hoop. Cut away the excess material with applique scissors.
7. Press from the backside with firm, even pressure for 15-20 seconds (330 to 390 degrees F) to fuse the glitter sheet into place. Do not use steam.
8.. Place the hoop back into the embroidery machine and finish your design.

Do I need a special presser foot to sew with vinyl?

You do not need a special presser foot because of the paper. Using the paper on top of the vinyl will help the presser foot glide smoothly over the top of your project without sticking to the vinyl.

How to do projects with Vinyl wash?

The best option is to hand wash or spot clean then lay flat to dry. Another option is to wash in the washing machine, however, it cannot go in the dryer. It must lay flat to dry.

What kind of needle do I need to sew with vinyl?

We would recommend a sharps, top stitch, or teflon needle. The smaller the better – pokes smaller holes in vinyl. 75/11 would be great.

How do I put the right file type onto my USB device?

Our discs will be formatted in one of two ways depending on whether the design is newer or older. This mug rug CD is an older design.

Older CD:
• When you put the disc in your computer the first window that will pop up will show all the designs. (For the mug rug CD it will list Cardinal, Cupcake, Heart, etc.)
• You will click on the design you want to stitch. (For example, Cardinal)
• It will bring up another folder with that design in all file types.
• The name of the files will end with a period and then the file type (For example, .art or .pes)
• You can also see the file type by looking in the “type” column in that folder. (The first column will most likely be the file name, the next could be the date, then type)
• Make sure you drag only the file ending in .pes and/or is labeled PES in the Type column onto your USB device.
• Remove your USB without opening the files.
• Insert your USB into your embroidery machine.

Newer CD:
• When you put a newer disc in your computer the first window that will pop up will show a folder containing all embroidery files, a folder for SVG files, and a folder for directions.
• Click on the folder labeled “Embroidery Files”.
• You will then see folders for all the file types. (art, pes, dst, etc.)
• Click on the PES folder.
