Using my sewing and quilting knowledge to start a business.
It all started with a 4 inch square coaster that I quilted. It was easy to make and I thought it would be nice to have a throw to go with it. Well, one thing led to another and before realized it, I was planning a new business.
I fell in love with the flannel fabrics, especially the baby designed items and thought it would be cool to embroider something but I don’t know too many people with babies so I turned to kitchen items like towels that I could embroider. Thus, the Brother PE770 was purchased.
A bit challenging at first but I figured it out. Instructions at my side, I plug along daily, learning something new every day. Youtube is also a lifesaver. Still new at it but it’s good to have something new to conquer each day. I am working on learning how to digitize embroidery patterns. Finding a program that I can easily navigate has been difficult. Let’s change that: Impossible. They are all hard. I wanted a program that would be compatible with my MAC but almost all the programs are set up for PC. I ended up buying Embird. It’s a good program but complicated. I finally conceded in buying another: PE Design Next which is in the mail to me as I type. The Youtube tutorial on it looked less intimidating. We will see.
I have sewn some baby items; blankets and burp cloths and embroidered a few small items. I will post pictures soon. Also I will take a picture of my new pup. She is currently collecting rocks and putting them on the living room window sill. Strange but true.
That’s it for today. Hope you all have a great day and thank you for checking me out.
