Machine Embroidery / Re: Linen Fabric for Communion Table Cloths
« Last post by Claudia on Yesterday at 08:38:18 PM »
Bringing this up as I have been asked to make a communion table cloth for our new church.  The furniture is being custom made and right now I don't have dimensions but the committee has specified using linen.  Am hoping Ann, or someone else who has completed a cloth, could give me some guidance as to where they purchased the linen. 

I have ordered samples from links provided in previous posts.

Thanks for your help!

Marcie, thanks for posting the new pattern. I have both the SW and CLD patterns but this looks just enough different to entice me.  Have you used their downloaded patterns

CRC Industries Europe.To continue,first select your country and your language,or here.  CRC runs its business through 6 fully owned subsidiaries (Finland, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom) and covers all other European countries through national distributors.

If your local stores don't sell the product,please ask to order it.I did that with Bar Keepers Friend cleaner for a long time.  :grinning:

Do you think Maintenance Fitter DH could step in here again and look at some non-US/NAm options? What a great guy!!

Well I'm in Australia, so the CRC brand is one non US option  :) I'm  not sure he'd be comfortable recommending something he hasn't used himself but I'm  sure other brands are much  the same.

Machine Embroidery / Re: Does anyone know how to change colors in Embird?

The Pfaff cards aren't programmed to show you the actual colors, but rather, the sewing order.  Black will always be what stitches first, then blue, green, pink, red - I think that is right.  So, yeah, the designs do look strange. 

You can change colors on the Editor page as Kathryn explained, but you can also do it on the manager page.  (I mean the page that you get when you first open the program.  Just right click on color box at the bottom of the page that you want to change.

There's a wonderful old book titled The Stuffed Owl:  An Anthology of Bad Verse that's relevant here.  The compilers make a distinction between 'bad poetry' and 'good bad poetry,' and illustrate their thesis with examples from famous poets like Keats and Wordworth.  It shows how even fine wordsmiths can lose their grip when they get caught up by an idea, and the results are enough to make your mascara run!

Every now and then, dh and I still get the book out and reduce each other to helpless giggling and snorting.

Thanks for the info, Elona. I'm definitely looking that book up. Sounds like a lot of fun.

One does not have to be a member of a closed fundamentalist sect to live a horrid life with little support or wise counsel from her religious leaders.


Kathryn,I second that !
You all have such great stories! I've been thinking about it since this morning, but no cool story. Hmmph. But I do have fabric paint so I think maybe painted denim should feature in my 6-PAC plan.

Ann, good to hear your DH is doing better. Hang in there.
