What thread do I use?

What thread do I use?

Embroidery Thread – this thread is glossy and has a sheen to it. We recommend a good quality embroidery thread such as Robison-Anton Polyester and Rayon, Wonderfill Splendor Rayon, Mettler Poly Sheen, Madeira Rayon and Gutermann Sulky Rayon.


Note: We recommend you do not use regular sewing threads on this machine. If you use regular sewing thread, it may cause stitching issues.

 

Bobbin Thread – We recommend a 60-weight bobbin thread which is a finer thread made for using in the bobbin of embroidery machines. The most common colours are black and white.


Note: This thread reel is usually labelled bobbin thread / bobbin fill.

Essential Information for the Air Artist Embroidery Machine    

Help! Why are my threads bunching and making a tangled nest underneath the fabric?

Help! Why are my threads bunching and making a tangled nest underneath the fabric?

Try these tips:

• When threading the upper thread, ensure the foot presser bar is up so that the tension is released.

• Keep hold of the threads' tails at the start.

• Make sure you are using embroidery thread and bobbin fill, as regular sewing thread can cause stitching issues.

Note: If the handwheel does not turn smoothly, do not try to turn it forcibly. If thread has become tangled and the machine will not run, refer to page 37 of the instruction manual. If you cannot fix the issue, contact the store from which you purchased the machine for advice.
