My Embroidery Story

Happy Saturday!  As promised I will share with you about my embroidery "stuff".  I became interested in embroidery maybe three years ago.  My hubby bought a machine that I thought was enough to get things done and let me say it was so much fun to use but something was missing.  With my first machine I was able to purchase downloadable embroidery files and stitch them out.  That became old really fast.  I looked around for software and OMG the prices were crazy.  I found one that had everything I needed to create files with clipart, true type font, and photo stitch. I got the software at very discounted price and I am so glad I did.  I look at the software now and I cannot believe how much it can add up.
I love this software!  I cannot wait to get the upgrade.

 Fast forward to this past Christmas, my hubby bought me an amazing upgrade.  I can do basically any size.  It can multi hoop, 6x10, or 4x4.  My machine is Singer XL 400.
A great machine!

Singer has upgraded software but remember I purchased Stitch and Sew two years ago and it works will all machines.  The nice thing about this machine I can design everything on my computer and send it to my machine through a usb.  Boy oh boy has the sewing industry changed.

  1. Thanks for posting this now I have something to show hubby for my wish list....have a fab weekend

  2. Thank you so much for posting the embroidery info. Do you think you can include "embroidery machine applique" tutorials along with your other crafts? I have two Singer embroidery machines. One is the Singer Futura Quartet that sounds a lot like your machine. Thanks again!


  3. Supper cute. When I saw the "M" shirt I thought how cool I want to do that. Hopping you had some cool trick where I didn't have to actually embroider. I see that isn't the case. I like to cut fabric but giving it that finished look isn't easy for me. Great job though.
