Re: Zipper Tape Necklace

I does look like a snake! Maybe in a color other than brown it wouldn't look like that. Can't say as I would make it for myself, but younger gals are into different jewelery than me.

Re: Calling All CraftStylish Embroidery Machine Owners!!!

I had a Singer embroidery machine for a few years, and like you I felt restricted by the "cards" and had to use an Amazing Box. When the box quit working, I went to a Janome demo and was hooked! I am computer impaired, so I have a lot of problems trying to put designs on CD's, etc., but I have good help from the store I purchased the machine from (not so with the Singer...he only did repairs)although the store is 40 mi. away. My original idea was to do my own designs until I found out how much the software costs. If I was better with computers I would try to work towards that goal, but I can't even figure out how to transfer my old XXX designs onto a disk in the JEF format! Lame, huh? I watch PBS shows on Saturday with embroidery techniques and try everything. I now have a Janome 11000 and love it. There are features on the Singer that I liked, so I still have the machine. It has great built-in designs. I would sell the Singer, but am still nervous about using e-bay! Anyone want it? $800!!!
