    I love to machine embroider!

    At this time of year, I get busy embroidering linen towels for holiday gifts. Embroidery Library.com and Sudberry House have wonderful and reasonably priced designs.

    Really cute. :lol:
    I fell in love with machine embroidery also.
    My hubby bought mine several years ago for me and I am
    still amazed as it sews out designs. I usually do designs for baby/crib quilts.

    Those will make great gifts. how do you get your embroidery so smooth with no puckers around the design?? I have a Bernina 180 E and am still learning.

    I love mine.

    Now to find a good inexpensive easy to use program for it.

    I tried Embirds free trial, I didn't like how it took over. Every time I opened a picture, Embird was there like a bad habit.

    When I embroider something like the linen towel, I do not hoop the linen. I use Stabil-Stick tear away stabilizer and hoop the stabilizer only. It is really sticky and will hold the linen towel perfectly in place. I used to hoop both the towel and the stabilizer and got puckers, so I tried this method and it works every time without any puckers or bumps.

    I also use Mary Ellen's Best Press for all my machine embroidery. There is a fabric store in Northern VA that sells it for $5 a bottle.
