Lesson 3 - Monogram On Terry Cloth

The following lesson is designed as a guideline for future reference when embroidering on most high-nap fabrics. Some of the guidelines may change depending upon the degree of nap, thread type, stabilizer, design size/density and size of the finished project.

Materials Needed:

  • 8” x 8” square of Terri cloth fabric
  • 8” x 8” square of medium weight tear-away stabilizer
  • 8” x 8” square of water-soluble stabilizer
  • Assorted thread
  • Memory Card of choice
  • Blue Tip Needle

To prepare your embroidery machine for this exercise:

  1. Attach the “P” foot.
  2. Fill a bobbin with Janome embroidery thread and place it in the bobbin holder.
  3. Insert a Blue tip needle.
  4. Set the pressure Dial at “2” 
  5. Turn the machine “on”.
  6. From the Menu select the Monogramming Mode key.
  7. Select the font style of your choice-Block or Script.
  8. One at a time, select the letters that match the initials of your name.
  9. Make a “sandwich” with the tear-way stabilizer on the back of the fabric and the water-soluble stabilizer on top.
  10. Place “sandwich” in the hoop. (Refer to the instruction manual for proper hooping.)
  11. Attach the embroidery hoop to the machine by turning the knob so it is parallel with the hoop. Insert the key into the carriage and turn the knob clockwise.
  12. Select a thread color or your choice.
  13. Thread your embroidery machine.
