    I'm so glad you found a way to help you! Do you know who your vendor is and if she has anything on-line?
    Here's the one I use.

    I guess this is where one says that we all have to find our own niche to fill. I watched this video a few days ago after finding it posted here and was beyond bored to tears with the whole process! I guess I'M not meant to do this sort of thing, but will admit that the results are beautiful.

    I will do up a short tutorial on the applique technique that she taught. The sewing down the applique, here is what I learned:

    1. # 60 needle
    2. VERY fine bobbin thread, found new stuff called invisafil thread 100 Wt.
    3. I have a bernia as she did and she uses the #20 foot and #3 stitch reversed so it does 2 running stitches and 1 zig stitch.

    That's it. Looks great when you get done, can't see the stitches at all and the applique is stitched down solid.

    Some of you probably already know about this who have the patience to do trial and error. I don't have that patience so this was a wonderful help so I could cut to the chase and start sewing.

    Look for the tutorial within the week. I'll round up all of the supplies and I'm sure some of you have see this before also.
