Machine embroidery is a process whereby a sewing machine or embroidery machine is used to create patterns on textiles.
There are two main types of machine embroidery. The first, free-motion sewing machine embroidery, uses a basic zigzag sewing machine. The second, computerized machine embroidery, uses an embroidery machine or sewing/embroidery machine.
There are two things needed to keep embroidery from puckering and shrinking over time. First is the selection of garment itself. Also pique fabrics.
Highly durable, flexible, and even washable multilayer electronic circuitry can be constructed on textile substrates, using conductive yarns and suitably packaged components for the development of e-broidery as a means of creating computationally active textiles.
