Hi there,

I'm very new to the machine embroidery game, having recently purchased a brother 780d to use in my business. I run a personalised poetry service, mainly writing speeches and readings for weddings, birthdays, funerals, retirements and other special occasions. I've recently started actually creating the favours due to having so many queries about whether I can do the lot, which is no real effort, however I've been receiving a lot of queries about the embroidered handkerchiefs for wedding gifts that you see available online these days.

Can anyone give me help with this? I've tried a friends copy of the brother 'pe design' software by importing the pre-written text I've created in Photoshop but it's barely legible once stitched. Also I've been reading about stabiliser-free stitching? As mentioned, I'm a complete newbie to the embroidery side of this project so any advice greatly appreciated.

You should hop over to the "general sewing" forum here at Craftster, there's a machine embroidery forum there that would probably be much more helpful.
