Let's Get Started!

You just saw the trending in the hoop projects and want to dive in; the biggest question now is "Where do you start?  When I first joined the embroidery world I jumped straight in and there were many trials and MORE errors. I want your experience to be great so I put together a list to help get you started without so many products to test.  

Startup Recommendations:

Thread Brand: Metro Embroidery Thread
Bobbins: Prewound 
Stabilizer: Medium Weight tear away and Water-soluble stabilizer
