I purchased some cute aprons recently for a gift and decided to personalize them with some lettering. I focused on selecting a pretty color thread, finding the right font in software, making sure the words fit in a 5″ x 7″ hoop, adjusting the spacing of the letters. Everything looked fine to me until…..I stitched it!
The minute my assistant, Denise Holguin, walked in she noticed the typo. I was dumbfounded! I had stared at the phrase on the computer screen and at the machine but darn if the typo didn’t pass right by me. Thankfully, Denise caught it. So off I went to correct the design and stitch another apron.
