I am so lucky this year. I purchased a Baby Lock machine and so very impressed by it. So far this year I have made four of the Lord's Prayer (…Continue

Hi y'all. I just joined this group. I embroider, mostly by hand, but did just purchase a new machine that does embroidery. I do a lot of crazy quilting.
Sandy, If you click on my pic and go to my place, there are three pics of my crazy quilt blocks I have done. They are only partially finished but you can get an idea of what i have been doing.
Harriet - I have a Brother machine, and it is similar to the Baby Lock. First recommendation is to take the free "how to use your machine" classes that came with it. If you bought it used, your local dealership will probably still give you the classes at no cost. To do machine embroidery you need stabilizer, machine embroidery thread, and, of course, designs - and something you want to put the designs on, be it a jacket, a pair of baby socks, or a quilt. I do my quilting using my embroidery machine's capabilities, and love it. I find my favorite site for embroidery designs is Embroidery Library, at emblibrary.com. They have frequent sales, and lots of designs for a dollar apiece. Their stuff is gorgeous, and they also have lots of projects in the stitchers gallery. Welcome to my world!
By embroidery, I'm hoping this group does some machine embroidery too! I have a question for you. I recently purchased any older Babylock Esante embroidery/sewing machine. I wanted to use it to make labels for the backs of my quilts and occasionally other things. I have no clue what I need to be able to use this. What kinds of materials am I going to need? What kind of thread should be used? Any special tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated because I am clueless where to even begin.
That is really cool Sandy. This is a right handed world and it is sometimes daunting for us who are left handed. But we survive.
I will see if I have a pic that I can download for you. I love crazy quilting and I have several blocks that I have done silk ribbon on. I have a book I got on ebay that has embroidery stitches for left and right hand people. I have had so much trouble trying to reverse stitches as I am a lefty. It works great.
Hi Sandy, Welcome to our part of the world. LOL. I have done some embroidery and silk ribbon is my favorite.
