Henry was plumb tuckered out from having to change so many bobbins!
You know you’re really busy when you have a pile of empty – just used – bobbins resting next to your machine. Recently, I was embroidering a burlap table runner – about 12 hoopings. Somehow I thought a table runner would stitch up fairly quickly. What was I thinking? Table runners span the LENGTH of the table not the width! And a lace design with over 30K stitches take quite a bit of time.
Here’s your assignment this week:
I know many of you have taken on impressive embroidery projects. I’m sure you get a sense of satisfaction when complete. And I think its rewarding to look at the pile of used bobbin and do a head count. So tell me, have you ever had a 7 bobbin kind of day? What’s the most bobbins you’ve gone through on a single project?
The winner of the last assignment answered the following question:
I’ll share the photos of the bride after her big day – don’t want to break any traditions! Speaking of traditions, I’m planning on embroidering a label for the gown, documenting the occasion. Have you ever done that? And if so, what information did you include? We’ll pick one random winner to receive a $20 gift certificate to Designs in Machine Embroidery.
The winner is:
Kati: “It looks like the dress will be beautiful! I often use a piece of grosgrain ribbon inside the side of the shirts I sew to label them. I have a programmable machine that will stitch out small lettering on the ribbon. (Using tear away stabilizer)”
