Last week, Soni Grint, Creative DRAWings Director, and I spent 2.5 days embroidering nearly non-stop. We created samples and promotional items for upcoming sewing shows using Creative DRAWings. I have always dabbled in machine embroidery, but after this last session, I must say I'm hooked. Creative DRAWings made it so simple! I didn't struggle with stitch parameters or even stabilizers. Creative DRAWings set the parameters for my fabric and suggested the stabilizers. Whew! Two mysteries solved right there.
I wanted to do fully embroidered black lilies, but decided that doing just an outline was more intriguing - and faster too.
She choose earth tone and sky blue threads that created a lovely embellishment.
Here are our projects - not yet done, but at the end of our session. I don't know what additional work Soni has done on her coat, but over the weekend I added even more black lilies to the back, front and sleeves and added satin dots, just to punch up the coat even more.
Soni and I are meeting next week in Salt Lake City for International Quilt Market. I will be promoting SCHMETZ, while Soni will be promoting Creative DRAWings. We'll both be wearing our outfits and I'll take more pictures.
