Pinned this topic back as there are still pledges to be fullfilled.
We’re £50 shy of the machine cost - anything over can be spend on spare frames, needles and threads to allow us to hit the ground running.
I’ll chip in £20! Love this idea!
‘David’ our new Embroidery machine is now in the space… look at him go!
Not bad for a first attempt huh?
The Tools page will be updated soon with all the details (inc. manuals and links to software to make your own designs)
We’re £100 shy of the fundraise target - if you had pledged but not donated, please throw some points in the kitty (if you can) - this will cover the cost of the machine and extra equipment to get us started
Amazing! Looks so cool, what a great addition! Thanks Everyone!
This is so exciting I have sent my contribution £ !
Nice one for jumping on this !
I don’t like uneven numbers, also, I might make myself nerdy things in the future with that
Thanks to everyone who donated - we’ve hit our target
The embroidery machine is now in the space and the tools page has been created - Brother Innov-is M230E Embroidery Machine
@TracyD and Myself will be at the Textiles Workshop on the 18th if anyone wants a guided tour - but it’s pretty easy to use
So cool! Great job on the tool page as well!!
Completly out of tipic, but can someone remove the Vacuum former? we have one.
The one we have is really small. I think a larger one would be more useful. @platinumnqueen22 thoughts?
Ok, so maybe we should change it to “Larger Vacuum former”
It’s basically a board with holes attached to a vacuum pump and a frame on hinges and ir heating on top of it? Feels like a we can build it thing.
Thanks for this exhaustive post David!
Can the embroidery machine make clothing tags? Or is it more for embroidering a section/area of fabric? Below for reference:
Can’t see why not. Only one way to find out
