Anybody know of a form out there for questions on hand embroidery. I making these tea towels and hand embroidered them for Christmas gifts but want to know if there is a pen or a pencil that is best that I can use to reuse these cute pattern so I don't have to keep reminding them over and over again I'm only getting one use out of them it's the aunt Emma's patterns. I have looked on the Internet and I found some but I'm not sure which one works the best. Thanks in advance for everybody's help Aloha in the Mahalo

Sandy, There is a transfer pencil (Aunt Martha's Pencil) available on Amazon for about $2. I used to have one but I must have given it away. About the embroidery forum, I don't know of any but someone on here surely will know.

I really love this website. She has a whole section on methods for transferring patterns about half way down. I guess if none of those work, you could try the "Contact Mary" link and ask her.

I have used that pencil in the past with great results. If you can't find one, shoot me an email with your address and I will mail one to you.
