Need help with what type of machine to buy

ladysundwnApril 29, 2008

Hi all, I am new here and am counting on your knowledge and opinion to get me started off right :) What machine would I need to purchase that could handle sewing and embroidering on dog collars made out of webbing? The webbing ranges in thickness from .040 (1.0 mm) to .095 (2.4 mm). For now I would only be using one color but eventually would want to do maybe two colors. Several different fonts would be nice too. I have no idea what to expect as far as price but with any new venture I want to keep my start up costs as low as possible. Thanks for any help you can provide it is greatly appreciated!

Hello, Stitching on collars can be difficult. I recommend a brother embroidery machine. anything from the pc8500 to the ult2003D. Because it is going to be hard (if not impossible) to keep the collar in a hoop you will want to buy the same type of backing that you would use for hats. (it's sticky on one side, you stick that to the hoop, then stick the collar on that) Embroider at the lowest speed so the collar doesn't move or your name and numbers will not be in line!
Good luck
