Season's Greetings

Season's Greetings


  1. The instructions for adhering the second felt rectangle in the Nov/Dec '10 issue are incorrect. Don't adhere the second felt rectangle until just before the last thread color change. Once the first felt rectangle is adhered, embroider the tacking stitches, and then stitch the remaining design except for the last thread color change. Remove the hoop from the machine, but don't remove the fabric from the hoop. Turn over the hoop and place the second felt rectangle right side up over the stitching; pin beyond the embroidery area on the right side. Place the hoop on the machine and embroider the remaining design.
  2. Cut the two short ribbon pieces slightly longer than the stated 5" in order to tie the bows without hassle.

These errors were made in part by the CME editorial staff and not the author. We apologize for the errors.

Downloading zips
First of all you must have Winzip installed on your computer. FYI-Its much easier to use if its registered. Then set up a file especially for your embroidery. I actually use a thumb(USB) drive for mine. Since I have thousands they are catalogued by subject and/or digitizer. Now your ready to download. click on design you wish to download. When they window prompting you to save or open comes up, choose open. Winzip will automatically open the file for you. You may see a list of the files or a folder. You must click the folders until you see the files. Then you can select just the files you wish to download. Right click on them and select extract from the window. Then locate the folder you created and save the file to it. Hope this helps.

Instructions in CMEmag
Are there some missing instructions in the mag? If I follow the directions completely, I get the front and back of the hanger stitched together with no way to stuff it! Help!!
RE: Instructions
The instructions are only available in the Nov/Dec '10 issue, which will hit newsstands on 10/19.
