This week, Ives Squared at the Ives Main Library debuted its brand new Brother PE800 embroidery machine! Over the course of 2 days, a number of patrons joined us to learn how to use this awesome piece of equipment!

The embroidery machine is user-friendly and even comes pre-programmed with a number of embroidery patterns! While the embroidery machine does not require a certification class for use, we are happy to show you how it works if you need some additional assistance! Use of the embroidery machine is on a first-come, first-serve basis and may only be used in the Ives Squared space. We have embroidery thread, hoops, and backing available for you to come and tinker!

Check out some of the fantastic napkins that our patrons customized on the embroidery machine, and then come try it for yourself!
