Subject: Fixing machine embroidery

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: Friday, June 30, 04:16:53pm

I was wondering if anyone might have suggestions on how to fix machine embroidery that has come loose or undone. I have heard that loose ends can be tacked down with fray check or fray block. I'm thinking that some threads that have been pulled outward (making loops) could be tucked under the surrounding embroidery and then also tacked down with fray check or fray block. For sections that have completely come out, I'm thinking it would be difficult to re-embroider them by machine and it's been suggested to me that perhaps they could be done by hand. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very greatly appreciated.

Best if you can do by hand. Use a needle and thread to start under the stitches and come up along the stitch line. Going up and down, catch the stitch loops and pull through. Where loops are gone, a little fray check works wonders. Or you can glue a crystal on it! (NT)meSunday, July 02, 12:02:59pm

Glue down threads, colour missing areas with a Sharpie, then glue on extra crystals (NT)where needed to cover the worst placesSunday, July 02, 05:08:17pm

Thank you very much for your suggestions. They are very helpful! (NT)PerplexedSunday, July 02, 06:30:04pm
