Embroidery machines can create patterns of thread on various types of fabric using a series of programmable needles. BeAM provides embroidery thread and hoops for the embroidery machine, but users must provide their own fabric.

You must complete the introductory BeAM 101 training before you can complete any of the BeAM tool trainings. Learn more here.
All BeAM tool trainings contain two parts: an online Training Introduction quiz, which you must complete before moving on to the in-person Training Project. BeAM has two types of Embroidery training: Desktop Embroidery, which is self-guided and can be done anytime the makerspaces are open, and Industrial Embroidery, which requires an in-person staff-guided session. Desktop Embroidery is a pre-requisite for Industrial Embroidery, and must be fully completed before attending an Industrial Embroidery session.
Access the Embroidery modules on the BeAM Canvas site here.
The Desktop Embroidery training project is self-guided and can be done anytime the makerspaces are open. You can reserve a machine for yourself through BeAM’s Coworks app.
The Industrial Embroidery training project requires you to attend an in-person staff-guided session. You must fully complete the Desktop Embroidery training before attending the Industrial Embroidery session. See a list of scheduled Industrial Embroidery sessions on the calendar here.
