Advantages and disadvantages of single-head embroidery machine


    This kind of single head, single needle embroidery machine looks a lot like a regular sewing machine. It has a flat bet bottom and a removable embroidery unit. Smart versions of these machines have an integrated computer that allows you to use them to create decorative stitches, utility stitches, or to make computerized embroidery.

    A single head single needle embroidery machine has only one head, obviously, and that head consists of a needle, thread, and bobbin, along with some other metal parts. As the machine works, its needle does not move while the embroidery arm does, by the instructions the user has programmed. This machine has one point of hoop attachment, and its hoop capabilities are smaller than those of a multi-needle multi-head model.

    Since this machine is computerized, it is relatively beginner-friendly. People who know their way around the computer will figure out how to use them properly pretty fast. By getting adequate embroidery software, you will be able to create, customize, and merge designs in a very short time.

    But, this is not an industrial type of embroidery machine which a single head multi-needle pretty much is. In other words, you won’t be able to finish embroidering extremely fast, and you won’t be as efficient in your work. One embroidery sample at a time is what you can expect from it because you have to change threads whenever needed manually. If you wish to add an embroidery design to something like a pants pocket, you will first need to remove to pocket from the pants. Otherwise, the entire thing wouldn’t fit in the machine due to its hoop and work area size.
