Subject: Commercial embroidery machines.

I was looking at the commercial machines and they come in different amount of needles. Is each needle for a different color of thread? What if you only use one color for embroidery? How does it work? You remove the rest of the needles?

What wold be the amount of needles you really need for making dresses.

Forgive me if this is a silly question but I don't know anything about the embroidery machines. Just trying to research.

Each needle has a different color thread, but they only sew one at a time. It makes color changes faster/easier because you don't have to stop and rethread for each color. Not completely nessicary for Irish dance, but a nice perk. If you have an embroidery trade show in the area, I strongly reccomend going to watch the machines in motion and get a better feel for the options availible. (NT)--Saturday, September 06, 06:56:56am

There are plenty of videos on youtube, or ask your dealer for a demonstration. (NT).Saturday, September 06, 06:02:47pm

If there are any dressmakers/embroiderers in your area, maybe you can go visit and at least get an idea of how things work. Where are you located? (NT)**Sunday, September 07, 01:38:18pm
