Embroider your monogram

  • Fasten the self-adhesive embroidery stabilizer into the embroidery hoop.  Remove the protective film and stick the tongue of the shoe onto the stabilizer.

  • Attach the embroidery hoop to the machine. To keep the tongue flat, place the embroidery machine as close as possible to the edge of the table and hang the shoe over the edge.
  • Check the position of the pattern using the check function on the embroidery machine and correct if necessary.

  • Activate the basting function to attach the tongue more firmly to the embroidery stabilizer.

  • Start the embroidery process and embroider a line of basting stitch around the pattern.
  • We recommend that you reduce the embroidery speed and monitor the embroidery process.

  • Embroider the monogram, holding the shoe so that the tongue does not come loose from the stabilizer and the shoe does not get caught.
