The Library’s embroidery machine is a Baby Lock Pathfinder. The embroidery machine uses .PES files to embroider complex designs and logos on fabric. Patrons must supply their own .PES files, embroidery floss, stabilizer, and item to embroider. Additionally, patrons are required to attend a safety training course before being able to reserve the embroidery machine for personal projects. Click here to view upcoming trainings.
The hoop size refers to the maximum size design that can be embroidered with that hoop, but the hoop itself is larger. Patrons are advised to bring stabilizer that is at least 8.5" wide and 7" long for the 4" x 4" hoop, 10" wide and 12" long for the 5" x 7" hoop, and 13" wide and 17" long for the 8" x 12" hoop.
Embrilliance StitchArtist Level 3 is available on the Creation Lab's PCs and iMac computers for those who would like to digitize embroidery files.
