ok Maybe on WEd I will have time to just play and read the manual on how to do the embroidery machine. I also have the stuff you put on the back for backing ....I think that is what it is called. I guess I am not that bad after all. I got mine in 2006. My BFF gave her embroidery machine to a friend out here in CA before she moved back to NH. The friend was suppose to pay her for it and she never did. My friend still has all the cards that go into a card reader. Have no clue about that as mine has a disc drive. One more set of winter blocks to do and then I can play.
