Using an Embellisher Machine

Tutorials to help you get started when learning how to use an embellisher machine

An embellisher looks similar to a sewing machine but instead of sewing materials together it felts them.

The machine doesn't use any thread and doesnt' have a bobbin. Instead of one needle the machine has several and each needle has barged edges that tangle the fibres in the fabric together to felt them. This process is similar to hand felting with a barbed needed but much quicker. 

Fabrics and yarns can be attached to the surface of a fabric using the embellisher machine to produce a decorated material. 

Look at the work of Emma Wigginton who is a textiles artist who uses an embellisher.
