1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Halloween Fun! on: November 04, 2012 03:51:23 PM
Each year I (with my husband!) make the kids' costumes. I often wonder if they enjoy them half as much as I enjoy making them...

Wow... great job!  I love the wings, they appear to have so much dimension!

What software are you using?  How long did it take you to learn how to use the software before taking this on?   Or was this inclusive of that time?

I have the Bernina software, but have been a chicken to try it out (and have had so little time). I would like to get motivated, and maybe this will be enough...
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / In the Hoop Bags on: January 25, 2012 12:30:22 PM
I was interested in making an in the hoop bag, such as this one: http://blog.picklepiedesigns.com/2010/05/in-hoop-fanny-packs-and-zipper-cases.html.

I was wondering if others have tried this or similar, and would like to learn from your experiences. Thanks!

Well despite some mixed reviews, I went with the Bernina 830. I am quickly learning it is beyond wonderful!  The quality of stitches is way beyond my expectation, it stitches out designs so quickly, and after learning a few tricks (e.g., how to insert the bobbin- which seems like it should be easier!!) it is fairly easy to use. In sum, I love it!!

Thanks, very helpful!  I will try both...
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Stabilizer for Lace on: August 27, 2011 07:12:32 PM
I am about to make lace (Yes, and awesome design from Urban Threads!). This is my first time embarking on this type of project. I am pretty sure the type of stabilizer to get, but wanted to know if anyone had a favorite brand.

I have heard lace can be kinda finicky and want to ensure my initial success!   Grin

Also, I have a Bernina, if that makes a difference or biases your opinion on brand.

Any advice on stabilizer, or other things I don't even know to ask about, is appreciated!

I tried Stitch Era Universal, and could do a few basic things but struggled often  to get it to do what I wanted (we had many choice WORDS in our short lived relationship!). I, too, would be interested to learn what people use. I have a Bernina. I am not much up to paying for the Bernina software, but am willing to pay for something better than Stitch Era Universal.

This just enables you to transfer files from your computer to the machine, I think. Did your machine also come with software?  If so, what type?

Both are wonderful. Where did you find the fabric used for the ones on the top? Love it!

Thanks for the inspiration. My daughter turns four soon and I was thinking of the girls making tutus and I might make them personalized fairy wands! 

Wishing we were having a pool party now!!
