    Here's a picture of the label. This was the first try so I have since resized it to fit the width of the ribbon and to decrease the density. Also did some editing to get the lump out of the bottom row of satin stitches. I am thinking now I need to add a vertical row of satin stitches on either side (white) so cut along and to help in stitching to the garments. This is also a trial in digitizing my own designs. Whew!
    I had tried satin ribbon but it really pulled in; however I didn't use sticky stabilizer. It would definitely be less expensive than the grosgrain.

    You can do it! i've been doing machine emb. for about 20 yrs and I taught myself with the manual and keeping my ears tuned to others...reading forum questions, hints, and asking a few myself. I only had a brief demo from the shop I bought from--then got on a plane with my machine and flew home . Ask away...there are many of us to help you.

    Yes I have one. I love it. What would you like to know?

    I'm relatively new (1 year) to embroidery, however, and am mostly learning by doing as I had a 20 min. demo on how to use the machine by the lady I bought it from (I got mine used) and that's it except for on line help.

    Congratulations. If you can I'd go to different stores and try out different ones to see which is a good fit. While you are there check out the store and see if you get a good vibe from it. Most have free classes and are good for support after the sale and this is what you want. I love my Viking Dealer store and people come from all around because they are great. They have an embroidery class once a month and even though they are a Viking dealer, anyone who wants to come is welcome no matter what machine they own. I took a quilting class and had the lowest grade machine and the only comment on my machine was on how quiet it was and then they showed someone who was interested in taking the class on how me and my machine were doing everything that the high end machines were doing. I now have a high end Viking Diamond Deluxe but have kept my little Kenmore. Good luck on your hunt; do check out a few.

    What I made for my Feb. SP swap

    This is a quick stitch Angel. I made on a blue tea towel for my secret pal this month. She loved it. Thought I'd share with you. I got the design from emblibrary.com I have the whole pack which is the days of the week however I didn't embroider the day on it. Thought I'd share.

    Those are adorable towels.

    I am thinking of making some embroidery block sets to sell.

    But still just playing around with that idea though.

    Quilty-Louise I have the set to these Angels, day of the week from emblibrary, I'm hooked on that website! But I agree with you, selling them as a set would be great!

    Yeah I know what you mean I LOVE embroidery library.

    I am totally addicted to their designs. Over the weekend I
    spent about $50+ on more designs.
