Multi Needle Monday: Looking through a camera lens

Eileen's Machine Embroidery Blog

By Guest Blogger, Denise Holguin
Managing Editor

I volunteered to cover Eileen’s Multi Needle Monday while she’s teaching this week.   Once I realized what I had done panic set in.  After careful consideration (and excitement over using a newly purchased macro camera lens) I thought I’d take an entirely different approach for today’s blog post.

Have you ever gazed at your multi needle machine with a sense of wonder and awe at its beauty?  Probably not.  I hadn’t either until today.  That piece of machinery is not only your source of income but a well-engineered machine – and today I’ll present it as a piece of art!

You’ll see an up close and personal look at a multi needle machine.  But have no fear—Designs in Machine Embroidery Editor and blogger, Eileen Roche, will be back next week!  In the meantime, enjoy!  You’ll also want to scroll through for some unexpected surprises…

All the parts are so intricate.  I couldn’t help but place a tiny little figure in the scene.  Take a look at your multi needle machine in your sewing studio.  Now imagine how TINY this little figure must be!  One sneeze and he’s gone!

While my macro lens was an investment  – just like your embroidery machine – they are meant to be used and enjoyed!  Don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and use your machine both as a tool and a creative outlet!

    Very interesting and unconventional post. Great photography. Never think about all the little parts in my machine and what they do.

      Emily,
      I used to have a train set as a child– and I love miniatures! I never imagined combining this fascination with embroidery but it worked! 😉

      Hope your model railroader enjoys the post!

    through the looking glass. Amazing what you can see when camera show details that we may not always see since the I can automatically blot out unnecessary things from our brain.

    Purely amazing.

  • Carolyn morgan

    Amazing pics! Definitely hope you make them available to us multi needle worshipers! I give mine a “atta-boy” pat everyday for a job well done. I look forward to multi needle Mondays, but this one was special! Thank you!

    Loved your blog post and photos. I’ve had my multi needle since my birthday Feb 19th. I still haven’t even plugged it in. I go look at her but then decide I better not tackle it right now! Lol maybe someday soon I’ll take the leap. Your photos make it look not so intimidating. Thanks for the up close peek!

  • Karen

    Thanks for the close up pictures. I am saving to get a multi needle machine. I will come home plug in and start it up right away.
