Before I go into my embroidery machine reports and recommendations, I wanted to make sure that you are aware that there are two different configurations: single and multi-head.
What are the different types of monogram machines?
- Single Head / Single needle embroidery machine – The single head / single needle looks like a normal sewing machine. The single-needle versions are less expensive and designed for home use. The single-needle models allow only one thread reel at a time, which means you must change the thread every time you want to change the color. This is usually no problem for home projects.
- Single head / multiple needleembroidery machine – When you start a commercial business, you definitely want a unit that is multi-needle. They are much faster and more accurate than their single needle cousins and you can load many different colors at once and do not have to change them during the stitch. This can save you a lot of time and money if you are trying to run a successful business.
The single-needle machines are the ones I’ll review in this post. I’m a home improvement who makes it a hobby and does not need a faster and more elaborate product. Below are my recommendations for use in your home.
