anyone else think this would be a good idea? machine embroidery is a totally different subject. i don't do machine embroidery and would like a forum that actually addresses what i do! just a thought...

Right now I am working on some t towels for my granddaughter... I know people don't use them now days like they used to but thought maybe some day they would bring back some good memories of me for her. I am doing the 7 days a week of a kitten pattern and making the kittens a dark orange, the same color as her orange tabby cat. My Granny got me started embroidering when I was about 13, she made t towels out of flour sack, stamped the patterns on. I remember having the best time embroidering with her and how proud I was of them. I still have them. I go back and forth between embroidery and crocheting with thread, making more things that people don't use anymore... lol...

did a separate hand embroidery forum ever get established? I don't see one.

You might contact GardenWeb via the link at the bottom of the page (in the gray area, second column, "Contact Us") & ask for such a forum.

or maybe they could sort of subdivide this forum;
when I cllicked on it, I was surprised to see that it was all about machine embroidery.

I too learned embroidery when I was a teen, & I still like the old patterns-

I love the old, stamped patterns - can't do the tiny cross stitch that are pre-stamped, etc. I have several vintage patterns and tons of thread. Would anyone be interested in trading patterns and/or thread?

RE: separate forum for hand embroidery?

Surprised too it's just machine emb
Maybe crossstitch forum?
That's emb.
