Floriani thread

Filed under: Brett,Embroidery,Sewing — admin @ 10:57 pm

I am excited to be carrying a new line of embroidery thead. This is a polyester thread instead of rayon. The poly thread has the same sheen as the rayon and is more durable. We have 330 different colors. We were also able to get 10 packs of 100 spools at a discount and pass on to the consumer. This is $600 of thread for only $279. But we haven’t gotten them in yet and will have an email sent out when we do. Right now the tread is at portland and beaverton only.

As I look around today I see a lot of yellow and green, next year we will see a little more orange and black.

5D Software & Upgrades are on sale at Montavilla

What we really like about this new 5D embroidery software is that it interacts with nearly all embroidery file types and machines. Plus, you are able to edit your embroideries in real time while your garment is in place. So if something doesn’t look quite right when you get your garment hooped, you can easily go and resize, flip the layout or adjust specific elements of the design.

Do you ever want to view your design in metallic threads? Would you like to see exactly what your design will look like in a variety of colors? Would you like to have the ability to easily edit stitches of the designs? Well, now you can!

We have the new 5D software set up on two machines so you can see the latest in creativity and perfection for Viking/Husqvarna and Pfaff. We will be offering software classes when you purchase the software. Upgrades are also available now.
