Embroidery Machines

Embroidery machines create patterns on textiles with various colours in order to create an image, logo, or text.

The Makerspace computers all have Embrilliance StitchArtist Level 3 on them for you to get creative and design your own patches. This software allows users to design images and logos which can then be saved as a PES file for the embroidery machines.
