Hello all my Cutie friends, Is there anyone of you that have one of these machines? My mom gave it to me she bought it from someone else but neither of us have any idea how this word. Included is a booklet of pictures but not instructions. Here is a photo of the machine and some photo's of projects in the booklet. Hugs Louise

It is an embellishing machine. You can do a lot of things with it.You can do trims with not only ribbon but can do what they call "couching" with yarns also. the newer machines can also do "felting".

those were about $400-500 when new I remember whichis why I didn't get one. I would think you could find stuff about it when googling or you tube-ing. All they do is embellish and several of the embroidery magazines had feature articles about them. They are about 7 years old? not sure of that. have fun!!

Louise, do a search on the Omni. I remember watching a video of one being used to stitch and decorate an item. It was amazing to see how you can
use it to embellish things. I started to purchase one quite some time ago, but decided I had enough toys at the moment! Use it and enjoy! You should be able to get enough info online regarding "how-to-do"!!

I think you have yourself a humdinger of a machine there. Never have seen one but looks like it could be a lot of fun, especially with embellishing anything./Lillian

The technique is called couching. I never saw a machine dedicated to it. Lucky you to have such an addition to your sewing arsenal.

This looks like it would be great fun! Once I figured out the first picture, that the big round thing is a spool of ribbon, not a CD, it was easier to understand. I need new glasses!! I was thinking it was a CD or DVD, like with designs on it, and even though my knowledge of electronics is rather elemental, I did think "Now, how the heck would THAT work without a player!" Sigh. Have a laugh on me today, hee hee hee, hugs, Marji

A very interesting machine. You will be able to do a lot of freestanding ribbon embroidery and using a funky wool as well to do some of the designs. Enjoy.++

I had several outfits many years back that had "ruched" (sp) ribbon stitched on in intricate patterns. I always wondered how they did that! Looks like you have the machine! You can embelish any garment, accessory, etc. with beautiful ribbons and cords. Love it. Linda

I did google it and also found a few youtube videos and some sites, this is weird for me its like freemotion embroidering that uses ribbon 3 diffrent size feeders for thin to about 1" ribbon and cord feeders small and meduim sizes it could be fun I tried it on a scrap of material with ribbon and it worked but somethings off with the tension so I will take it to my technician and see what he says. Hugs Louise
