my dad wants to know what i want for christmas other than money, so i am going to tell him that i want an embroidery start-up kit.

what was the name of that website with the woman whose designs were being stolen?  she has a really cool site and i want my dad to get me her start-up kit, but i can't think of the site for the life of me!

My boyfriend bought me just about every kit she has last year for Christmas. THEY ARE AWESOME! Buy all of them, (very affordable) you will be busy for weeks. I travel a lot, so they come in handy for that easy travel project. Smiley

If you're starting out, think about a way/place to hold your patterns.  Often a three ring notebook, sheet protectors, and some larger paper clips worl well.  Slip your patterns into the sheet protectors,  If they are smaller and/or slip out, secure the top of the sheet protector with a paper clip or two. - If you get hooked, you'll have little line drawings of your own, photo copies or clippings from magazines, and stitch description/instructions to add to your notebook.  And, if you depart from the world of embroidery for a while, you will still have your notebook collection to go back to.

If you stick in the crafting, sewing, or embroidery world for any length of time, you will find more storage and "carry-with" containers, portfolios, and storage solutions than you could ever fit in a whole house.  In the end, don't underestimate the use of a plastic baggie.  They come in all different sizes but quart and gallons often make great carry-around bags for an individual project.  Right now, I have a project complete with book in a zip-lock bag that a dozen socks came in; it looks funny but is keeping everything together, clean, and dust free on the shelf until I get back to it in January.  Freezer bags with real zippers across them are probably the top of the line.  But, I've even carted small ornament projects in a fold over sandwich bag in my coat pocket.  Plastic bags are not a good long term solution for fabric because it doesn't breath.  In the mean time, they are a pretty good, inexpensive solution whether you take your stuff with or you simply work from a single chair at home.

Slip your patterns into the sheet protectors
that's a good idea
I never thought of that
