Re: Big Sew Stylish Giveaway: Books, Sketching Panels, Pincushions, and more!

I love it when the dresses from eras gone by featured on the back of Threads inspires me to incorporate a detail in my every day clothes. Sometimes a feature can go on a collar, cuff or pocket. Other times it might end up on the bottom of a pant leg. Inspiration is everywhere, but vintage features usually speak to me

I had VIP embroidery software, but need something newer as my new computer doesn't like the outdated software even though I was happy with what I had. Any words of wisdom without paying a fortune for software for a hobby?
