    I've used them before....dare I admit that I use them more now that I'm getting older? Oh wait....my EYES are getting older, not me. :) It really is as easy as she says to thread them. I don't use them for my hand applique but do for regular sewing.

    HI, I have tried to applique several times, but my old hands just can't seem to get the hang of it, so I do it the
    Elanore Burns, way. It's o.k. for me. Have fun, andd always remember I love you. Glo

    I think that is the key to the whole thing Glo. We need to do it "our" way. We find what works for us and continue to quilt. :)

    I'm trying to transfer an applique design from a magazine fold out section and they printed many other patterns on the same fold out. Of course the one I want has the lightest line. It has really been slow going trying to see the correct line. I have a light box but that only helps a little. Any suggestions?

    My husband just handed me the mail and I received my two (2) DVD on hand appliqueing-- the teacher (best in the world to me) Elly Sienkiewicz can't wait to open them and get started. Talk to you later.

    try drawing on top of the pattern you want to transfer, going exactly over the lines. Then use your lite box. Hope it works for you.

    Please let me know how these are..I would be interested in purchasing them if they would help me learn the proper way to applique.
    Thanks

    Bonnie, I can see the difference since you pressed. Can you? I think you did a great job.

    Regarding using the light box. My sewing room is in the basement and when I use my light box, I turn off other lights in the room. See if this helps.

    One of the courses I took from Karen Kay Buckley used one of Elly Sienkiewicz's books. The quilt is a Baltimore Album. Can I brag a bit? Karen suggested and I followed, to send my quilt to the Lancaster Quilt Show. I didn't win, nor did I expect to, but it was an honor to be selected to show. It was fun at the show to see other quilts taking a closer look and pictures of my quilt. Some of Elly's books sell for over $100.

    Sometimes I use a hoop for embroidery and sometimes not. It all depends on the pattern, material, and to tell the truth - my mood. :)

    Keep trying. THAT is the main thing.
    I agree with this! I am going through all the various types of preparation and appliqué methods and am learning them all. Then I'll choose my favorite(s). One thing I did learn from some very experienced Baltimore Album Blue Ribbon winners is that you often will use multiple preparation/appliqué methods in single block - depending upon which technique works best for that particular applique piece. That's something else to keep in mind - and a really good reason to try them all...at least once, to me.

    Right now, I'm learning to use prepared sheets that you copy the pattern onto using a copy machine/printer. Then cut out the individual pieces, iron onto the back of the fabric, and cut it out. You can glue or pin baste the piece onto the background fabric (testing Roxanne's Glue Baste). I'm also pinching the edges of some pieces which I've read will make it easier to applique, and not others, for the sake of testing. So far, I really like using the sheets, even if more expensive, as the preparation part is very quick.
