I have been looking at an embroidery sewing machine for years. Overstock is the go to place for finding anything. I found the Brother embroidery machine at a price I could afford. I'm impressed with the variety of stitches possible and the unlimited options I have to create the perfect piece in the colors I want to embellish whatever I'm working on. It makes what I'm doing unique and special for the receiver. I still hand embroider but for the more complex and time consuming pieces the Brother fits my needs. I have daughters, daughters-I'm-law as well as grandchildren that I sew for and doing something unusual with an article of clothing creates a work of art. It gives me great pleasure to create a one of a kind garment and have people ask what store did you buy it from. Years ago when studying in Rome I had embroidered a pair of jeans that at the time would never be worn in town. However, I did and was stopped over and over again asking where I bought them when I mentioned that it was my own creation I was asked what I charged for the jeans. It was a one of a kind that I had put hours and hours of work into making it and I couldn't put a price on it. Eventually I gave it to my sisters best friend delighting her. Now, many years later, with my new Brothers embroidery machine I can be as creative as I want and hopefully make one of a kind clothing again.
How excited I was to receive my new Cross Stitch Kit of the Christmas Holiday Village. The colors are more vibrant and beautiful than had expected. It is working into a "masterpiece"! I enjoy working on it so much that it takes me from my other activities. I have never received a kit that was so well put together. The threads were already label and assembled so that I was able to begin creating it as soon as it arrived. While there are many color changes in a small area, it is easy to follow the paper-printed pattern.
This set of roving colors is very bright and can be used in many different applications, I will be using it to embellish felted handbags, either through needle felting into the design, or by creating various shapes with the roving and then placing them onto the felt.
