Sewing, Serging, and Embroidery Machines

Examples of the sewing, serging, and embroidery machines that Umbrella Joan uses to teach her own classes, create Umbrella Joan patterns, and create umbrella prototypes.


Contrasting thread was used for this example, while matching thread would be used for an actual sewing project. 


You can use two threads in the upper looper thread path instead of wooly nylon. There are many color options with Isacord Embroidery thread. It is very strong and an excellent choice for outdoor projects like umbrella making.
