Best answer: How do I embroider small fonts?

How small can you embroider letters?

You cannot have letters so small that you are creating stitches that will be stitching on top of each other. This causes holes in the fabric and thread breaks. Your stitch length must be a minimum of 1 millimeter in order for it to sew and not create holes.

Can you use any font for embroidery?

Generally speaking, unless you’re using a software brand that can run ESA fonts, the fonts that come pre-loaded in your embroidery software or machine will give you better results over buying additional fonts to add to your software (especially if these additional fonts are TrueType or BX fonts).

How do you embroider really small?

You can embroider smaller text if you use a smaller needle as well as a thinner thread. Typically, embroiderers use a 40-weight thread and a 75/11 needle, but you can try a 60-weight thread and a smaller needle like a 70/10. If you change one, but not the other, you’ll defeat the purpose of this advanced technique.

Can you embroider with thin thread?

Yes, you can. The good news is you shouldn’t hurt your machine at all. The only problem you may find is that regular thread is a little thicker and it may pile up on you as you embroider. In other words, you may get more coverage with regular thread than you would with normal embroidery varieties.
