The smallest text we can embroider with any accuracy is about 0.20″ (5mm) high. We can make adjustments to your design to compensate for slight variations. Typically, a single line of text can only include about 20 characters and spaces before it requires the text to be split into two lines.
How small is too small for embroidery?
You cannot have letters so small that you are creating stitches that will be stitching on top of each other. This causes holes in the fabric and thread breaks. Your stitch length must be a minimum of 1 millimeter in order for it to sew and not create holes.
How thin can you embroider?
You can embroider smaller text if you use a smaller needle as well as a thinner thread. Typically, embroiderers use a 40-weight thread and a 75/11 needle, but you can try a 60-weight thread and a smaller needle like a 70/10. If you change one, but not the other, you’ll defeat the purpose of this advanced technique.
How do you embroider something small?
When embroidering pieces of fabric that are smaller than the embroidery frame, use spray fabric adhesive to attach the fabric to stabilizer (backing) hooped in the embroidery frame. With fabrics where you do not wish to use spray adhesive, baste the fabric to the stabilizer (backing).
Can you embroider with thin thread?
You can, with the thinner crochet threads, but perle cotton would be a better choice. Crochet thread is twisted differently than embroidery threads are, and is usually just a bit stiffer. The lighter weight the crochet thread, though, the better it will work – size 40 will work better than size 10.
