    Too many; tweezers, quality threads, great trimming scissors!

  2. Wanda White says:

    The tool I cannot do without is my seam ripper. I use the point to remove stabilizer, to remove the fix stitch around embroidery, and most of all to do the “frog stitch!” I just love a good sharp seam ripper, especially when it has a cover to keep it nice and sharp till the next use and not stick anyone when I forget to put it up.

  3. DORIS K . OTTEN says:

    My Bernina 830 because I can almost do everything.

  4. Sharon LaMontagne says:

    My curved-blade embroidery scissors. They really help when doing applique embroidery.

  5. Linda B says:

    My embroidery scissors!

  6. Deana Guardado says:

    I totally depend on Buzz Explore to categorize and scroll through all the designs I have. It helps select the best design for the project, and jump starts my imagination for all the possibilities.

  7. Deborah Mineer says:

    my mesh thread holder keeps the thread from hang up .

  8. carol mozzetti says:

    My wash away stabilizer!! It is the best Espesially for angelina fibers!!

  9. Amy says:

    ha ha, my machine and my computer!!!!! other wise my bent handle fine shears by Heritage/Klein – I would never be without them! They are the best!!

  10. Kim says:

    The most used is the thread stand. The next are the wonderful people at my sewing shop who are always there when I need a hand.

  11. Donna says:

    My computer program for embroidery and my bent handle scissors. Oh, don’t forget that lovely thread! Love the colors!

  12. Cheryl says:

    Embird :) I would be totally uncreative without it … even the Basic package is awesome!

  13. Cathy Martin says:

    Curved embroidery sissors.

  14. Rose Anderson says:

    My subscription to Creative Machine Embroidery. There are so many how tos and ideas that have helped me so much. Also the sources for supplies and designs.

  15. Suzie Pace says:

    I love my Brother Quattro and my snap in hoop. The hoop makes my life easier.

  16. Melinda Siekmann says:

    The tool I can’t live without is stabilizer.

  17. Sheila Gaston says:

    Soma and percocet.

  18. I would have to say my Sulky stabilizers. They are invaluable and with the different types makes my embroidery truly impressive.

  19. Jeannette says:

    I use an x-acto knife instead of seam ripper much faster for me.

  20. maria goad says:

    My wonderful Ruby machine!!!

  21. Anna says:

    My grid template that goes with my embroidery hoop. A great help for getting the design placement straight. Also, my curved embroidery scissors.

  22. Barbara Payne says:

    All of my Sulky thread

  23. Abbi Lamb says:

    Embroidery Sissors

  24. Paula Somers says:

    The one thing I could not go w/o is double stick tape. It will help with hoops and fabrics not slip and pick up threads. I also love my curved nippers, they are great with cutting close to appliqued items.

  25. mari says:

    Three tools I really rely on–my 3 inch curved scissors for the final fine trimming–my stabilizers for the proper finished appearance–and all my issues of CME that I rely on for hints, advice and confidence.

  26. Carol Fallacara says:

    My computer, I spend almost the same amount of time on it designing the layout of the designs as I do sewing.

  27. Linda S. says:

    I love my Floriani set of tools for embroidery, especially the thread nippers.

  28. Cheryl says:

    I can’t do without my blue painters tape and my embroidery scissors!

  29. Stella Penalver says:

    I cannot be without my hemostats. I have 2 different sizes that allow me to grab the tearaway stabilizer without putting stress on the stitching while removing from the embroidered design. Also, there is no blade to accidentally cut the wrong thread on the design.

  30. Judy A says:

    too many to list, but my stitch eraser tops the list!

  31. Ellen McCaulley says:

    My embroidery scissors.

  32. Barbara Beeney says:

    My embroidery scissors.

  33. Barb says:

    My Pfaff 7570 machine.

  34. Susan says:

    My special embroidery trimming scissors are the best! The seam ripper is a close second though!

  35. Tonee Taylor says:

    I really cant do without my embroidery thread and placement guide

  36. Pat says:

    My machine (it has some fantastic designs on it and I am exploring all the different ways that I can use them) and those fine tipped tweezers. They go everywhere together. And we go to class often.

  37. Susan Greene says:

    8″ hoop, Scotch tape, to name just 2.

  38. Max Haley says:

    my curved tweezers, seam ripper, curved scissers

  39. Myrna Goddard says:

    My pointer. I have a plexiglass(?) one from Brewster that doesn’t tear thru the fabric. It is just wonderful for turning anything and getting really clean corners.

  40. Loretta Kilborn says:

    I love my embroidery software. The possibilities are endless!!

  41. Loretta says:

    I love my embroidery software. The possibilities are endless!

  42. Valerie says:

    There are so many to choose from, but I have to say first and foremost is my Ellisimo Gold. Without it, I’d be stuck in my old 4×4 hoop world. Second, are the wonderful people who are so creative and sell their artwork online. I’m so appreciative of their talent!

  43. Lavonne Meriweather says:

    I almost cannot do without the camera feature on my Brother PR1000 embroidery machine. A second tool is Floriani’s pressure sensitive stabilizer.

  44. Martie says:

    I can’t live without a collection of threads that let me choose subtle changes in shading such as in Roses for Mary.

  45. Mary Kelly says:

    My tweezers are indispensable!

  46. Penny Dahl says:

    My small clipper’s, to get those fine threads and keep finish neat while embroidering.

  47. Stephanie Brooks says:

    The embroidery designs I buy. There is nothing better than a good design to get me thinking about what I can make with it.
    I have tried making my own designs, they always turn out to be failures, lol. It looks much easier than it is to make those beautiful designs.

  49. Myrna Goddard says:

    My sewing machine. I don’t have the skills to shade a rose properly but I was doing machine embroidery before we had embroidery machines. I did a Casper the Ghost on the back of a tailored shirt for my daughter back in the early 70′s. I did Tweety on another shirt however neither of these were shaded like todays designs do for us. I am grateful to all the talented people that can digitize so I can have fun.
