Here is my first project the day I brought my machine home December 2011. It is a coaster for my husband to say thank you. I used the camel hair from a suit coat that he had ripped the elbows and the fonts were built-in the machine. For those of you who have been machine embroidering, you will notice that I did not cut the material after the outline stitch. I learned that shortly thereafter. It is so much fun learning better techniques. It seems that this is not static – new ways are always being posted.
