Editor's Letter

What’s new in the embroidery world? This question is asked consistently on our Facebook page and it’s the topic of many discussions in our sewing forum at sewingdistrict.com. Many of you want advice for choosing a new embroidery machine, guidance for finding the right tool and help in deciding what to embroider next. (Visit sewingdistrict.com and become a member to contribute your thoughts to these and many more discussions.) It’s one of our missions to show you the latest and greatest innovative products to keep you informed of what’s new. Turn to page 10 for a slew of fun must-haves that will inspire you to get creative.

New products aren’t the only things that get your juices flowing. You often tell us that you want to learn new techniques that utilize those products. Try your hand at a new fagotting technique by making the linen towels featured on page 52. Or take 3-D embroidery to the next level with the bouffant flower pomanders on page 30. From heirloom looks (“Vinatge Charm”) to contemporary styles (“Sheer Delight”), there’s something for everyone in this issue.

Whether you talk to us on Facebook, tweet with us on Twitter, comment on our blogs or participate in our Sewing District Sew & Tell community, we’re listening. Turn to “On the Web” on page 66 to read the recent hot topics posted on our social networking sites. Keep the conversations going and tell us what you want to see in CME!

OMG!!!!!!! I'm so nuts. I wrote you two notes of complaint. Would you believe I'm complaining about the wrong magazine. I subscribe to Designs in Machine Embaroidery. But, when I looked at your site, the projects were so neat that I got upset because I thought I had the wrong issue. And I wanted to do several of them. So, So Sorry. Use this letter in your staff meeting to show how stupid people really are. Nancy
