If you are trying to embroider a hat that is already assembled, you will see the stitching and backing on the underside of the brim - not pretty... You really want to have the material/design embroidered before the hat is assembled.
My Viking Designer is a sewing/embroidery machine that will do hats. You have to flatten them first, so unstructured hats work best although we have done Flexfit 210s on it (and with puff embroidery no less! ).Not really sure what you're looking for here, but if you are asking if there is a combo sewing-embroidery machine that will embroider hats, the answer is no.
If you're looking to get started with a machine for the home market, such as a combo sewing-embroidery, you could consider farming out any hat work you get, while you get a feel for embroidery, and determine if you're really going to get enough business to buy a machine that will do hats.
You should be able to sew the brim to the crown with a regular sewing machine. It probably won't be easy but you can do it.
Couldn't be more agree with your opinion.You should be able to sew the brim to the crown with a regular sewing machine. It probably won't be easy but you can do it.
There is a machine for that. I thought about doing that but when I checked the cost and what the learning curve to make caps so that they are all the same would take about two months and about 500 caps werth of material.
