The other things you should keep in mind include making a particular design fit the sewing machine’s hoop setting, how to feed threads to the machine to include the needle and bobbin not to mention how an embroidery unit should be attached. Once you have taken care of the issues mentioned above, you can claim to be an expert in operation of the machine
