My Maderia Incredible Thread Embriodery Box came late yesterday and I just love how it works and the colors are out of this word. Check it out at Nancy's Notions. The thread stays in the box and threads threw slots. There is a small video on youtube also. I did a Christmas design today and the design is nice but the thread cover is not so good. Why would that be? I believe this design was free could this be how a sample works out? I know the thread is great because I have ussed it before. Now I am going to have to get my Sharpies and color in the design. I am glad this is on a shirt I wear t o dialysis but I want to put it on something to wear doe Christmas but not when it turns out like this. Any ideas or suggestions?

Was it hooped correctly sometimes that will do it. But you do get what you pay for. Maybe try a design your brought.

Yes it was hooped correctly. It took me awhile but I got it dead on. I needed that practice! Yes, I am doing one that I paid for and will post how it turned out. The thread is awsome though.

I always do a test before embroidering on anything that will be ruined if I don't like how it turns out. You just never know how it's really going to stitch out until you've done it.

You will get to learn what freebies you can trust depending on where you get them from. I have no time to test and watch a design stitch out twice. Also I came to find out there are so many great sales out there among the embroidery sites I don't mind paying for them and then you know what your getting. Browse through the pinned topics under embroidery and you'll see them.

The thread is not the issue, but this may be the resolution.

I have one of the boxes and never use it. I put the thread on the machine's spool pin or use a thread stand.
