Towels and Napkins

When monogramming towels, napkins, etc. it is much easier to hoop the items straight if you place your hoop on a flat grid to aid alignment. There are manufactured products for this purpose, or you can make your own with a sheet of bristol board, a straight edge and a permanent marker.

Feedback or Questions about "Towels and Napkins" (3)

I purchased one of he letter bits designs (#1). I want to use it on terry towels. The satin stiches get lost in the loops (I use a stabilizer on top & bottom). The stain stich seems too narrow. Is there a way to enlarge the width of the satin stitch? I have 3D embroidery software.

EmbroideryArts Support answers:

Not all designs are suitable for all purposes. One simple thing that you might try is to sew the design twice. Sew once, then sew again, right on top of the first, without removing the towel from the hoop.

Your embroidery software program should allow you to enlarge the design, which will also increase the width of the satin stitch elements. Your software may also allow you to increase column width without enlarging. This function is typically referred to as pull compensation. You should consult your software's manual, or the dealer where you bought the program, for more information.

I would like to know the size and placement of a monogram for a flat bed sheet.


EmbroideryArts Support answers:

The size of the monogram is up to you. Some monogrammers want to have the monogram placed on the band of the sheet, so that dimension would determine the maximum height.

Placement, either on or above the band (both are correct) is centered, with the bottom of the letters facing the bottom edge of the sheet.

Can you give me details on how to make your own tool for placement.

EmbroideryArts Support replies:

While it's possible to make your own placement tool, it can be time consuming.

As of Oct 1, 2004 we have introduced a new product called Monogram Manager. This is a complete placement kit that includes 15 printed plastic templates for a wide variety of monogramming situations from linens to wearables. Also included are a set of reusable adhesive center points for centering the design on the machine, a translucent mini-ruler with english and metric measurements for checking alignment, and a full color 16 page guide that describes placement in detail and offers hints and tips on stabilizers and topings.

Monogram Manager retails for $49.95.
