Embroidery Machine

An Embroidery Machine uses thread to create patterns and designs on textiles. This machine is an embroidery and sewing machine with built-in stitches, designs, and fonts. Users can download existing design files or make their own designs to create custom projects. Designs can be created on the Embroidery Machine's touch screen or by using the Pallette 11 embroidery design software on the Design Computer.  Projects can range from monogramming towels, to customizing baby blankets, and much more.  

Users of the Embroidery Machine must be 18 years old and complete the certification course in order to use it without supervision. Users ages 12-17 may use the Embroidery Machine after completing the certification course, but must be supervised by an adult who has also completed the certification course. See the MakerSpace Policy for all the rules governing the use of the MakerSpace equipment. The certification course includes a video class, an online test, and an in-person safety orientation.
