I am a home sewer and quilter who loves the craft and wants to pass along ideas/suggestions to other quilters & sewers. I hope you enjoy this forum.

    Hi Melinda, I just came across the picture of the Battenburg Lase Chrismobns you made for your church. I searched Embroidery Library and couldn’t find them. Can you send me a link?
    Warm regards,

    I’m rather new to embroidery and all I have encountered is polyester thread. Where do you purchase cotton embroidery thread for machines. I have the Babylock Unity.

    • I only use polyester thread for embroidery. I use Mettler and Isacord with great results. I’m not sure a cotton embroidery thread would hold up to the fast embroidery speeds of my machine…plus I like the “sheen” of the polyester thread.

  3. Hi Melinda, I love your Chrismon ornaments that were posted on your blog in 2013. Would you be able to email me so I could ask you some questions about how you made them? My church is looking to repair/replace our Chrismons, and your blog post really got us interested. Thank you!

  4. I just found your blog – where have I been? Question for you – how do you like your embroidery machine and was it hard to learn how to use it? Guess that is two questions. 🙂

    • That’s the fun thing about blogs (and my new addiction, Pinterest) is that you can find something new every day. I love my embroidery machine. It is one of the few tools I’d fight anybody who tried to take it away. My very first embroidery machine (I’m on about my 4th or 5th one now because I keep trading them in when a new and better model came out) was a little difficult to learn mostly because it was very new and different to the sewing I’d done before. I had a great dealership that offered “guide” classes which I could not have done without. Embroidery has gotten easier with each machine (except maybe for my present Bernina 830). This machine is more challenging because it does things so differently (and is a little more finicky) . I absolutely love it though. Glad you are here & welcome.
