Is Machine Embroidery Too Difficult For Me?

Machine embroidery may seem very difficult at first, it might be very tricky, you may feel discouraged, you might even feel like quitting. Here's how to tell if machine embroidery is worth it for you. 

If the only reason that you might think machine embroidery is too difficult for you is that you are confused or overwhelmed, in the end, it will be worth it! If you're overwhelmed then try to take a second to do something else, read a book or watch a movie. Try going back to your machine the next day!


Once you know a lot about embroidery, it will become a lot easier!

People tend to give up because they don’t know how to get answers to their questions, or they don’t want to spend the time learning about it. 

If you don't want to put in the time to learn about embroidery, this might mean its not for you. On the other hand, if you are willing to put in the time than machine embroidery is most likely for you!

Ask yourself this: “will I put in the time to try and learn about this? Will I have patience?” It is so very important that you can put in the time and that you have patience. 

If you ever have problems, just ask questions! You can find lots of answers to your questions here on my blog and I have a Facebook group where lots of people will be happy to help answer your questions, including me!

I write articles every week on machine embroidery or sewing! If there's an article you want me to add to my blog, leave a comment below! I would love to hear all of your ideas!

It took me a lot of work to learn about machine embroidery when I first started! Believe in yourself, it’ll all be worth it in the end!

If your struggling with your machine and you’ve been at it for hours, take a break! Go outside if you can, if you can’t go outside, do something that you enjoy! Read a book or watch a movie!

Remember, nothing gets accomplished when you’re frustrated!


If you really think that machine embroidery is too challenging or too difficult for you, take a second to assess. 

Do you think eventually you will be able to get it? Do you actually want to embroider? If you feel that you are never going to want to embroider and that you just want to sell your machine, at least wait a few days to think about it. 

Think this, "do I really want to sell my machine, or am I gonna keep on trying?" There’s no harm in trying!

I hope this helps you! Good luck!
