Top 10 Things You Won't Hear a Machine Embroiderer Say

I once asked for some input from a couple of embroidery groups that I follow on social media. The question: Name something that you will never hear a machine embroiderer say."

Here are my top 10 favorite answers:



“I have enough thread, I don’t need any more.” 

Jutta Duncan


“I will never buy another embroidery design.”

Sandy Mowery Taylor


“I can totally stop buying supplies I don't need just because they are on sale.”

Kimberly Martindale Pappe


“My embroidery room is big enough; everything is in it's place!”

Nancy Wagner Burrell


“My 6 needle machine sews big enough and fast enough. I don't want one that sews faster or has bigger hoops!”

Rebecca King Odle

 “My designs always stitch out great the very first time!”

Toni Leli


“Nah, I never stay near my single-needle embroidery machine because nothing ever goes wrong!”

Cyndi Block-Hessler


“I never have to throw away a design because I used the wrong stabilizer.”

Delorus Freer Jarrett 


“Of course I've never had the machine needle stab me, I have never had my finger any where near the needle.”

Carol Blaha 


"Where is my medication?"

Cynthia Chalfant 

Care to add to the list?
