Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of Embroidery.com , there may be some limitations. Below is a description of known limitations, and potential solutions. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

Known limitations for Embroidery.com:

  1. Comments and questions from users.: Uploaded images may not have text alternatives because we cannot ensure the quality of contributions. We monitor user comments and typically repair issues within 2 business days.
  2. Embedded or imported third party content: Some embedded video or images might not include close captioning or descripted alternative text. This is because some content is displayed on Embroidery.com, but resides on a server outside of Embroidery Central's ability to update. We are removing or updating outdated content and choosing content sources with better accommodation practices. Some referenced media, such as YouTube, has automatic accessibility options. Click on "Open in YouTube" and view video directly at the YouTube website..
  3. Outdated projects, blogs, articles, product descriptions, and sample images : Images within archive of projects, blogs, articles that do not have alternative descriptive text for images because much of this content was created prior to advances in technology or our understanding how it works. We are actively removing outdated content and updating alternative image descriptons. The embroidery community is also assisting through the Visual Accessibility Project. Meanwhile, be patient with us or consider using an Artificial Intelligence powered screen-reader which describes images even though an ALT tag is not present. You may also call us at (800) 428-7606 where you will receive assistance from a live customer service representative..

Hi Donna,

I see an account for you, so it looks like you registered correctly. Although it looks like your registration date was in 2018. So I'm wondering were you possibly trying to register with another website?

where is the participation needle minder found for #ilovetostitch2022

Please Login to comment on this post.

Jeanne E.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for reaching out to embroidery.com! The Love to Stitch 2022 needle minder isn't available until after the Love to Stitch challenge ends, at the end of February. You'll need to mark that you completed the challenge on the Love to Stitch 2022 Trophy page. That page should be available within the next week or so. And you need to be sending in pictures of your work, to Donnett as well. It takes some time to total everything, since we get a lot of participants. But as long as you mark that you participated when the trophy page becomes available, and you send your pictures to Donnett, then you'll get an email with the Sew Prize # for the needle minder. But it will be at least a month to total everything, so you'll get an email maybe by early April. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Have a great day!
