embroidery machine. Depending on the finishing stitch you chose (zig-zag or satin), the machine will change colors and proceed to the next step.
* Zig-Zag: Traditional zig-zag stitch with squared, double-stitched corners to
simulate hand sewn tack twill. Match thread color to applique piece for a traditional, clean look. TIP: Use regular sewing thread instead of rayon embroidery thread if you are using this finish on athletic uniforms that will receive a lot of rough wear. Sewing
thread is stronger.
* Satin Stitch: This is a two-step finish. First, The machine will sew a tacking stitch in a light density satin, then proceed to cover that stitching with a full
density satin stitch. The finishing satin stitch can be sewn in either matching or contrasting thread. TIP: Using a contrasting thread is a great way to add another color to your design. Also, when working with patterned applique fabrics, match your thread color to one of the darker colors in the pattern for best effect
