It’s official – we have now entered the 4th Quarter of 2017. That means that many of you are already up to your ears in Christmas embroidery jobs. But don’t let the pressure of Christmas embroidery distract you from the other date looming on the horizon – December 31st – Year End – the Deadline for 2017 Purchases to qualify for Section 179 Tax Savings.
Think of it! Great Happy Embroidery Machine, Great Price, Tax Savings
and Great Financing Options through Red Thread Financial.
Single Heads and our newest HCR3 – Multi Heads
available in 2, 4, 6, 8 & 12 Head Models
Call Carrie today to learn more about the Tax Savings available with your Happy Embroidery Machine Purchase.
Are you thinking about using one of those 0% Finance offers – here are some reasons to re-think that before you buy – or call Red Thread and find out why their program is a much better choice – 877-237-7287
Benefits of Red Thread program over 0% offers:
- Equipment cost can be inflated on the 0% offers as the dealer has to pay a buy down fee to offer.
- Red Thread offers a fixed payment/interest rate even if there is a late payment. Late payments on most of the 0% offers cause the interest rate to inflate to rates as high as 29.99% retroactive from day one.
- Red Thread’s program may offer additional tax write-offs for businesses.
- Red Thread’s program does not report to the personal credit bureau report since it is considered commercial financing; it won’t hurt your personal debt to income ratio when buying other items like homes and cars.
- Red Thread’s program helps you build business credit history.
- The 0% offers will increase the credit card debt reporting on your personal credit bureau. High revolving debt can hurt credit scores and affect future purchases of homes and cars.
- Red Thread has no cap on equipment cost financing.
- Red Thread can roll in all soft costs… training, install, delivery, shipping, sales tax, etc.
Maybe you should shift your perspective. Focus on the “Bites” – the Monthly Payments.
See for yourself just how much it would take to put that Happy Embroidery Machine in your workroom.
Check out Red Thread’s Online Payment Calculator. Don’t forget, you don’t have to finance the entire cost of the machine. My best advice? Give Red Thread a call and let them help you explore your options – 877.237.7287. www.RedThreadFinancial.com

I recently was given a Monogrammed Throw Blanket to Re-Work. The original Monogram was done with a very wide Satin Stitch. This kind of stitch does not “wear” well as the stitches can be very loose and prone to snagging and pulling. In addition, if you look closely, you can see the loops of the blanket actually beginning to work their way up through the embroidery thread. A Water Soluble Stabilizer (WSS) used as a Topping at the time of the original stitchout held these loops back. With time, and washing, this topping dissolves and is no longer able to hold these loops back. The same thing happens with a Terry Cloth Towel or a napped fabric like the Christmas Stocking featured in previous posts. Even if you don’t wash the item, Water Soluble Stabilizer dries out over time and can become brittle and flake away underneath the embroidery design if there is enough room under the stitches as in the embroidery below.
Fortunately for me, the same thing that makes this stitch style a bad choice for the blanket, makes it a very easy “fix”. I simply slid the tip of my Snip EZ Scissors and Snip, Snip, Snipped my way across, underneath the Bobbin Thread. The Squeeze Action of these Scissors make them a dream to use for cleaning up thread tails on the back of designs as well as this type of project. I especially love these Snips because they are so easy on my hands. My thumbs no longer work well and my fingers are stiffening up. I can use these for extended periods with very little pain in my hands. Even when you have good hands, working regular Scissors for long periods can become quite painful.

During a recent conversation with one of our customers in Michigan, I clicked my way over to their Facebook page . . . Oh My!
I was so impressed with their Caps and Patches I wanted you to see them.
- Partly because they just do such an amazing job.
- Partly because they get such large designs on their caps.
- But MOSTLY I wanted to inspire you with the fact that they are doing all this on our 7 Needle HCH 701 Journey machine – well, actually, 6 of our 7 Needle Journey machines!
They just keep Growing and Growing and Growing. Now we are discussing the possibilities of adding a Multi Head Happy to their workroom.

Did you see my post a while back featuring these High Top Sneakers? I used the One Point Frame Small that attaches to the Cap Driver on our Happy Embroidery Machines. These come in 3 different sizes: Small, Large & Long.
They work beautifully on Shirt Pockets, Backs of Caps, Cuffs, Blue Jean Pockets . . . all kinds of items, not just Shoes and Boots!
I posted a link below to Rene’s new video showing how to attach these to your machine, be sure to check it out.
Has this ever happened to you? Everything is going along beautifully and out of nowhere – an oil stain on your Embroidery Project!
How do these things happen? And always at the worst possible time! On the worst possible item – one you can’t replace!!!
Well it happened to me on a White Apron I was working on. Happily, I remembered that I had bought something months before that was supposed to remove this kind of stain. I had been shopping in our TexmacDirect.com store here at TEXMAC’S Corporate Offices where I am located. I love shopping in there by the way. Anyway, I was browsing around one day and saw a can of stuff that said it would remove stains and thought,
“Why not, couldn’t hurt to have some on hand, just in case.”
Now, here I was, the unthinkable, my last white Apron on the shelf and my last Christmas Gift, with a great big Blop of Oil! Just before I panicked and headed for the store to look for another apron I remembered that can of stain remover I had bought so long ago. Now I just had to find that can!
2. I waited for the Powder to dry
3. I just brushed away the Powder and the Oil Stain was completely gone. Gone I tell you!
Look! Not even a hint of stain. It was so easy and quick and did exactly what I needed it to do. PSR Powdered Dry Cleaning Fluid
There will always be a can of PSR on my shelf, just in case . . . 🙂
I am a picture kind of person.
I take pictures with my cell phone of just about anything I want to remember – everything from your face to the fabric bolt I just bought so I can buy more of the exact fabric if I need it. I can also look back at the photo for content and care instructions.
This approach works really well for me when it comes to my Embroidery Designs. When stitching out a complicated, high color change design that I know I will be stitching again, it is nice to know that my Happy will know exactly which needles to use 6 months from now. Problem? Well the odds that I will have the same color spools on those needles six months from now are slim to none!
What to do? Take a picture!
Just lay the stitchout next to the spools and snap a quick picture. This shows me exactly which threads I used and what their locations were when I stitched out that design. I can also write a note with the date, design name and project/recipient next to the design and add that information to the picture as well.
It is also helpful to lay the cones down and snap a picture of the bottom so I can see the exact color numbers used.
In a shop environment, this can be a helpful approach to add to the files or folder for a customer job so that no matter who runs the job in the future, they can get it right!
Don’t forget the recipe either – you know, the stabilizer you used, the needle type (Ball Point, Sharp) and the needle size. Include anything in the notes that will insure that future runs for that customer will be as successful as the first.
