    First embroidery machine

    I got my Innovis last Saturday but only had the basic sewing instruction lesson. Next lesson won't be until December 10 though. . That's when I'll get to embroider something. The instructor said to bring an item to embroider and suggested a towel. I'm not sure what type of towel to use. All cotton? Will Terry cloth work?

    I am excited to learn how to machine embroider . I'm sure I will have tons of questions though.

    Ginny, you can definitely embroider on terry, but I think for the first one I'd try to find a nice cotton kitchen towel. M* has some great ones and if you don't have another lesson until the 10th of December you have time to order one . . . You are going to be having so much fun - and don't wait until the next class before trying your hand at some fun things. Just go for it!!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

        Ginny, I've gotten some great quality kitchen towels from Home Goods if you have one near you. They are a waffle weave and they embroider very well. I did a dozen towel/ potholder sets and they all sold out at the craft fair I did.
        If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

          I'll check them out Cathy. Thanks In the meantime, I did order a couple for M* just so I knew I'd have them for my first lesson.
