Specialty Test Designs
We would love for you to take our specialty threads for a test drive! In order to facilitate, we are providing free downloadable designs that have been digitized specifically for the specialty threads listed. You’ll see if a needle change is necessary for best results. Also stitch count, number of colors and a link to the thread products in case you would like to see available colors and sizes. Please be aware that instruction sheets, webinars and instructional videos may also exist in order to help you gain a comfort level with these threads. If you would like to learn more about any of the digitizers, please scroll down to the bottom of this page. Enjoy!
