You have serious power fluctuations when you are running an iron and computerized sewing/embroidery machine at the same time. What if your power fails and you lose your embroidery design? With a battery backup system with AVR (automatic voltage regulation), you will maintain a constant flow of power to your investment and give yourself time to power down your machines appropriately and help protect your machine from a power surge or brown out. With the battery backup, you'll have some time to charge your electronics, even if the power goes out!
My embroidery machines are an investment I want to protect, so when I work in an arid environment, it's easy to create a static charge when I'm sewing. Putting my sewing machine on a mat like this not only dissipates a static charge, but it provides a little sound buffer under my machine. An added bonus is that it keeps my machine from moving around on a table. It's also great to take to a sewing class if you are sewing on a plastic table which creates a lot of static charge build up! It's easy to cut to a custom size as well...you may have enough for home AND classes! There are different sizes available.
For successful machine embroidery, you need to have the fabric stable, yet relaxed (not stretched out of shape). If you can stabilize the fabric, you can use lighter "paper" stabilizers. I love Terial Magic for those special quilt blocks, applique, or machine cutting techniques. I even used it to add body to the 15 Minute Bow Pattern! This small bottle will be your stabilizing friend, so give it a try.
