Aaron,

That looked like something out of that movie "Alien".  You had a thread
spool growing inside of your machine.  Looks like Rod delivered it.

I agree with Tom on Rod's manicure.  I'll bet a pedicure isn't too far
behind.

Thought some of you might enjoy this.  Rod and Sharon are here for a
friendly visit (havent got the bill yet so its still friendly) and Rod found
where I have been storing my Dark Green thread.  There must have been half a
spool wrapped up in the cam of the machine.  Here are some pics.

Hey Roland!!  Debbie here!  What tees are 7oz. besides Port Authority and
Gildan?  I  have searched for a really heavyweight tee (even though many of
them call their shirt a heavyweight, they aren't).  Thanks!!!!!

Because teeshirts are the absolute worst garbage material you can think 

of embroidering on...most shops won't even touch them.

You need several layers of 3 oz. backing just to get a stable base...

standard teeshirts are only 5.5 to 6.5 oz. material, decent 100% cotton

heavyweights might be 7 oz., and some of the real good premium weight

shirts can be 8 oz.

But it is not a pique knit or poplin, heavy weave material-it's a
lightweight

fabric that just isn't made for embroidery.

You have to back off on density-the needle is making the holes, the thread
is

tightening up and exposing it-and the material

itself will rip easily, very very easily, so after you've punched a hundred
holes

in a half inch area for embroidery-then the thread tightens up and pulls it
in...

instant hole!

I won't do teeshirts. Period!

Just not worth embroidering on anything that costs LESS than the thread

price to sew on it.

The only way around it is a ton of backing-then it looks and feels like you 

have a patch sewn on the inside of the shirt and is very noticeable.

 

My opinion...

Roland
