Hi I got into Embroidery about 1 year ago. One of my friend told me about this forum. I am here to learn stuff and get better at what I am doing.
What kind of embroidery, hand or machine and what type of machine do you have? For free machine designs go to the manufacturer and they usually give out free designs once a month. There are free designs on the companies like Amazing Designs, Dakota and so forth, you can get those for giving them your machine style and other information. I have Viking machines. I no longer do embroideries for people for money; always, always make them pay up front even if it is family or friends whom children are on sport teams with your family. I hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply and help. I have started with hand embroidery but now I am doing machine embroidery as well. Creating beautiful patterns, is becoming a part of my life. I really enjoy doing embroidery. Have a look at my work.
