Thanks guys! I'll definately pass on the possitive feedback to my mom and encourage her to join!
And White Trash Hero: The best advice I can give is to invest in a thimble (thimbol? I can never spell that word) It depends on how thick the denim is but it shouldn't be too hard. But having a thimble/thimbol will help you if you run into difficulty. Also if you've never embroidered before, get a book from the library that is just a stich diccionary. It is easy once you get it but it is always nice to have a guide by your side! Happy Stiching!
