    Yet ANOTHER Learning Curve - Hotfix Sequin Machine Arrived!

    This week we added the All American Hotfix Sequin/Spangle 4 head setting machine to our shop


    We've a lot of experience with All American having owned the NeoFlex for about 3 years. It was for that reason, and the amazing support we've received from AA, that last September Angie & I travelled to Philadelphia for training.


    I'd previously seen the sequin machine in action at several European FESPA exhibitions and it attracted a lot of interest.


    We spent a week at All American in Philly most of it training on the machine the rest of it drinking with Peter & Sue and one evening out with Justin. I also learned a lot more about the NeoFlex and how it's built. There was plenty to do as AA were in the middle of producing a very large order for a well known hobby store.





    Our machine was packed/crated for the long journey to the UK while we were in Philly





    We also added quite a lot of reels of sequins!


    As usual, I take masses of pictures and several hours of video (all uploaded to Youtube) throughout the training and, I'm sure it'll prove invaluable now the machine is here.


    The software that accompanied the machine is All American's Embellishment Studio 2014 - I think it's Flexi by SAInt with the added feature set for Sequins. Anyone who knows FLEXI will be aware, it's a very capable piece of sign software.


    That's enough for now, but I'll keep you informed of our progress. I expect a long learning curve ahead.


    Would love to hear from any other AA Sequin Machine owners - please get in touch.


    Here's a short video of the very first switching on ceremony :)

    that is some bit of kit, is that your factory where you are unwrapping the yellow pallet?

    I wish! That's the warehouse of All American Supplies in Philadelphia. It was being wrapped and prepared for shipping :)

    I'll find some pictures and post them later.

    The machine arrived last week and I'm still getting it together - taking my time :) as I want it to be right. One part broke during shipping and a replacement is due here on Friday.

    That's a good thing, I wanted to see the result of the machine like putting Japanese sequins on a wedding dress.

    I looked at these machines about 10 years ago and I was advised that most of the customers for this were in the middle or far east and there was no chance of competing again them. Turkey being a big producer. Have things changed since then?
