2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Machine Embroidery thread on: December 29, 2007 01:29:47 AM
I have the Brother sewing/embroidery machine (the disney one). I just got the PED Basic software, which is write-only. I just bought a new font off ebay. Each letter has its own PES file. So I have to upload one letter at a time to my card, and embroider one letter at a time on my machine, which makes it nearly impossible to get the spacing correct. So instead of putting the name "Drew" on my card and embroidering "Drew" as a pattern, I have to embroider the D, then start over and embroider the R and hope I get the spacing somewhat neat.

So my question is, is there any way to edit this, and turn those four PES files into one so that I can embroider a whole name as a pattern?

Am I making any sense??
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hopefully I can post this here... on: December 14, 2007 12:09:33 AM
I have been working on this blanket for my grandma for about a month. It will be my Christmas gift for her, she has no idea I have been working on this. It is made from pink ribbon fabrics, as a tribute to Brest Cancer awareness. My granny is a 3 year survivor now. She is an amazing woman and I can only hope that she loves this blanket.

Now, I hope you guys dont mind me posting it here. Its not a traditional quilt, perse. The front is mostly flannel. I Appliqued 5 family photos, and two patches, one that says "To Grandma" and the other one says "Love Nicole". The back is fleece. I am also going to be doing the yarn ties at the intersections of all the squares (is there a name for that?) Anyway, its not perfect by any means, but here it is:

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Question!! on: December 13, 2007 11:56:53 PM
So I have been reading some posts about some cases where people have had professional quilting done. What does this mean? Does it mean you piece the topquilt then send it off and have someone else do the rest? I'm curious about this, so enlighten me! ( :
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / New here! on: December 13, 2007 12:37:39 AM
Hey all! My name is Nicole. I am a 24 year old mother of two beautiful children. I am a stay at home mom and I just recently started my own business (baby blankets, burp cloths, tutus, bows, sock monkeys, etc...everything is handmade by me).

Anyway, my baby blankets arent tradtional quilts. They are patchworked on the top and most have minky fabric on the back. Some of them have batting, but most dont.

Welllll, recently, I bought this HUGE quilting book, so I decided I wanted to try my hand at the real deal. So I have been working on a quilt for my grandmother for other a month. Its a tribute to breast cancer, as she is now a 3 year survivor. The top is mosty patwork, and I appliqued 5 family photos onto a few of the blocks. I wanted it to be a warm throw blanket for her, so the back is pink riboon fleece. I think it looks great, but I would like some other opinions. So as soon as I learn how to upload photos, I wll post some pics of it!

So if I have questions about quilting as I get started....can I ask you all for help?? ( :
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cricut! on: December 13, 2007 12:31:37 AM
My very very good friend sent me a Cricut machine for Christmas. I have been dying for one!!! In addition to using it for my scrapbooks, I am planning on trying my hand at making custom greeting cards! I think it should be fun. So far, I only have the George/Basics cartridge, but I already ordered the New Arrival one and the Paper Dolls one...they should arrive next week.

Does anyone else use a Cricut? How do you like it? Any tips or tricks you want to share? Also, where is the best place to get replacement blades? How often should they be changed? I went to two different stores today and they were out of stock.

Anyway, sorry for just jumping in like this!! I hope thats okay!
7  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Hey Y'all! on: December 02, 2007 09:41:05 PM
Okay, I am new here and have some questions! I live in North Plains (near Hillsboro). I make baby blankets, burp cloths, tutus, hair bows, and sock monkeys. And I also do childrens resale clothing. Anyway, I would love to be able to sell my things at shows or in little shops or something, how would I find places?

Also, I read that some of you meet up once in a while, I would love to join you!!!! When would the next meeting be, and where are they held? What do you do during the meetings?
