The history of Embroidery Machines
Machine Embroidery is a process whereby a Computerised embroidery machine is used to create patterns on textiles. It is used commercially in product branding, Corperate advertising, Gifts and much much more.
Machine embroidery is thought of as a modern procedure. However the discovery of the shuttle embroidery in the 1800s revolutionized the embroidery industry in which began a chain of events leading to the development of sewing machines in the 1860s and powered embroidery looms in the 1870s.
The first embroidery machines were "punching" machines. A design was constructed on paper and the mechanical apparatus punched through the paper and into the fabric with thread.
in 1980 Melco patenented the first digitized design where the user created the pattern in the computer and printed a paper that run on the embroidery machine.
Both, Brother and Tajima created sewing heads for embroidery machines that allowed for the use of more than one thread at a time.
Which brings us to the present day. Here at Uplyme Embroidery Services we use the state of the art Tajima Embroidery machines.
