My neighbor I just found out has a embroidery machine.
I asked if she would make labels and how much for them.
Well she said she would and had no problem making them but she has never made them so she didnt know what they used for labels and how big.

So heheh I come to the best place for answers

What do I need to get for the label itself (material?)

And what size is a normal label?

I usually use a solid color from the quilt 100% .
Size usually depends on how much information I want on the label.

Okay so just regular cotton quilting fabric do you use like a tear away stabilizer or wash away? anything



Sorry if this sounds stupid. I dont know and maybe my neighbor does know more but we only had a few mins over the fence.
She just asked if there was anything special that the label needed?
I told her I didnt know but would find out

I use tear away stabilizer on the back, and a fabric that coordinates or matches the quilt. I put who it is to if this is a gift, the date it is made or the date of the occasion. My name. You could even put the name of the quilt or the block name. I usually sew the block on the lower right corner of the back.

Thank you everyone. So I need to get
tear away stabilizer.

Also what kind of tread do they use in those machines.
I "know" she is not going to charge me just the kind of neighbors we have. so I thought i could bring them with me so she is not out any cost

Thanks

You can use regular thread or rayon embroidery thread. The rayon embroidery thread has a sheen to it and is made especially for embroidery machines. But you may not want that shine on a quilt. You can use either cotton or polyester. She should know what needle to use. Ask her if she wants you to get those too.

Some people prefer(or feel their machines prefer)a particular brand of thread. Offering to buy a spool or two would be a nice gesture if you know she's not charging you for the labels.
