Monograms help please

Susan -homedecsewing | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

I have a new client that I’m meeting with tomorrow, and she has told me she wants monogrammed pillows. Large. I have a Rose but it won’t do anything as large as she wants. Has anyone freehanded a monogram on their machine. Also what is the order of letters in a monogram ?  I want to brush up so I am sharp for my first meeting tomorrow.Any and all info is welcomed. Have a great day!Susan

    Monograms have changed a lot in the last fifty years.  The large, central letter is supposed to be the surname (family name), but the trend toward equal-sized letters has led many to put them in normal order. For Jane Ann Doe, the traditional would be J D(big)A, but the modern, equal-size, would be JAD.  The customer probably has a preference, but if not, monogram etiquette is surely available online.
