      Hi Cherrypops,

      I am new to this forum too.  I think I am using it correctly.  I posted some replys, but I am not sure how to check to see if someone replys to me.  Could you just give me some quick directions.  Thanks.  Janice

        Welcome Janice, (lovely name it is my mother's also). and she is a grandma too.!

        When you registered for 'gatherings' you would have supplied an email address.

        You will receive notifications in your email inbox, from "The Taunton Press" Subject Line "Message Notice From Gathering's". Please make sure you check your spam or junk folder.

        When you open the email you will read for eg: " CherryPops posted a message to you in gatherings"

        The messages shows which discussion and gives you a website link to click on. This link automatically opens a new window on your pc and takes you the response.

        Any further questions please ask. I am happy to help out.

          Hey can I add a bit more to what Miss CherryP said...When you post on anything whether it is a reply to someone. It will ask you do you want to be notified when ever there is a post to that thread.so click on that feature first before you hit continue.By doing this even though some posts may not be directly to you..you still will get to catch up on the thread with any new activity as it comes via email notification..
          I hope I made sense with that By the way WelcomeBlondie

    Hello Scilla,

    What type of sewing do you like? Garments, accessories or home decorating? I love garments, mostly. Welcome.


    1. Scilla | | #5

      Hello,I sew garments and home decorating. Some projects I sew with the serger.
      That´s for me a new technology, but I love challenges. My last sewing
      project - a pyjama(terry-fabric) turned out well.Scilla

      1. MaryinColorado | | #6

        Welcome to this forum!  Hope you Don't know how I ever survived without a serger.  There are so many fun things to do with them.  I found the book, Serger Secrets very interesting, many great techniques, even sewing on beads with it.  I look forward to your posts.  Have fun!

        1. Scilla | | #20

          Thanks for your book suggestion - Serger Secrets!! I´ve just got it in my hand and started reading. In the next time I will test some ideas.
          I´m sure it will works! I´ll let you know.

          1. MaryinColorado | | #21

            That is my favorite book in my collection.  It is so worn that I need to have it rebound!  The "serger lady" in there has a website too it's http://www.lindaleeoriginals.com

            You can download a very cute embroidery design of a serger free from her website.  She also has serger specific patterns.  I hope you enjoy the book as much as I do!  Mary

    Welcome from the editor of Threads and Sew Stylish! I'd love to hear more about your machine embroidery projects. Glad to have you on board!

    1. Scilla | | #7

      Hello,I´ve done some bookmarks with my embroidery machine, tovels with name-embroidery and for christmas time a lot of x-mas greating cards. Most I use freebees, but I also do digitizing. Scilla

      1. MaryinColorado | | #8

        What are tovels?  I also do machine embroidery, am waiting for Viking to come out with the latest software pkg. I also do free motion emb. but would like to get into digitizing so I can scan my own sketches to use on my Designer 1.  It is such a big investment and I don't know if I would use it enough to justify it.  There is also a cool looking digitizing program I am looking at from Corel DraWings, from Microsoft. I like to get designs from emblib.com, they also have great instructions and ideas.  Mary

        1. Scilla | | #9

          Sorry! I mean towel.
          Take a look at Embird. That´s a software where you can build up with modules. Scilla

        2. Cherrypops | | #10

          My Ma has the Des. 1 and uses Generations software for digitising and has all the buzztools packages.



          I also have buzz. just need my machine. Mother's day in may. might get lucky.
