Embroidery Machine

I raised enough money to buy the software and card writer for my embroidery machine.

Found mine on for $129.99 which is higher than ebay, but I had a 50% off coupon so I was able to get it for half price. 

It was ordered Saturday so hopefully next week it will be here !!

I'm really busy with blanket orders, so not sure when I will have time to learn to use it..  My best friend volunteed to try to teach me to use it, but still need some thread, stablizer so I can play with it.

Embroidery Machine

I finally saved enough money to buy my own embroidery machine.  I can't begin to start to learn to use it until I get the money to buy the software and card writer for it.  Plus I need thread, stablizer and more bobbins.  But the pretty machine is sitting on my desk waiting for the day it can be used. 

I have been paying my best friend to do my embroidery work and as soon as I get all the materials and learn to use it, I won't have to pay her anymore ..  Very grateful for her help, but eager to do embroidery work on my own.
