    Nice to see you here. My embroidery is limited to daisies on matinee jackets etc., but I do like sewing, I make patchwork quilts, amongst other things. Like all crafters, have a go at anything.

        Sewandsoap,
        I'm not sure if you meant me (Carol) or Sarah who was introducing herself.
        but I have a very simple Brother and it has served me well.

        p.s. Sorry, my mistake, you are Sarah. I think my marbles have joined Auntynet's again or I'm having a Senior Moment

          Hello Sarah to the forum

          I do embroidery. But I'm not sure I'm going to be much help I have only been doing it about 12 months myself, and I too do mainly baby items and towels, although I'm starting to move into other things also.

          I don't like doing logo's on T-shirts as I can never get the placement right!! I use pe design light so if I ever upgrade it's more likely I'll be asking you for tips.

          Would love to see your work when you have enough posts.

              Hi and welcome Sarah!

              I've done lots of embroidery, but not much use to you I'm afraid - mine was all done by hand (and it was many years ago!)

                Sorry I don't do embroidery and I don't like sewing much (just not my thing!)

                But hello and welcome to the forum anyway
