Victorian Valentine Postcards @ BFC !

Have a question or want to show off your project? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

If you are doing a large embroidery with several designs that need to
be lined up, try this trick from needlepoint. If any of you have done
needlepoint, you know that the canvas pulls dramatically in one
direction and you have to grab opposite ends to straighten it out (or
really have to block it and pull it real hard). Machine embroidery does
the same thing needlepoint stitches do but in a smaller way. In between
stitching each design on your fabric, iron your piece and take opposite
corners and pull - iron again. Then do the other two corners and iron.
This will help straighten the grain in the fabric again for your next
design. Without this straightening you could come to your last design
and find you are way off and wonder why. We use a small square to help
me tell that the horizontal and vertical grain is square and it has
really helped.

NEW DESIGNS: All new designs are on INTRODUCTORY PRICING (except fun
sets) and all have FREE SAMPLES.

*POSTCARDS - VICTORIAN VALENTINES*  Due to the overwhelming success of
Barbara's postcards, she suggested Suz do a set. These are made for
Valentines but can be used for many other occasions too. There is a
Queen of Hearts for your card playing friends to floral bouquets and
even a clown for the grandkids!

*BUTTERFLIES* by Fred You get both a picture and individual designs in
this set of beautiful realistic butterflies.

*FLORAL EXPRESSIONS II* The companion set to the Window, this set
creates a large embroidery without embroidered background. Be sure to
see the sample project. Suz experimented and using the same thread,
stitched the design on a dark batik to make a pillow. It's amazing how
different designs can look on different fabrics! This looks almost like
a tapestry.

FLORAL EXPRESSIONS II - ELEMENTS*  A group of 15 designs to coordinate
with the other Expression II sets. This set has some outline designs
that would look great as borders for your wall hangings or done in
metallic threads.

- Elements will be on sale this coming week and then will come off
intro pricing. We will then credit all the Expressions I bonuses.

*ANCIENT RUSSIAN FLORALS II*  Due to the popularity of the first
Russian Florals we have added another set.

*POSTCARDS - ART NOUVEAU LADIES* Since handcrafted postcards are all
the rage, Barbara decided to do a set for you. These ladies are
gorgeous!! And they can be used for more than just postcards:) You are
coming up with great ideas for this set! So far two customers have
written they are going to cover an old truck and another a travel bag.

*PENGUINS* All kinds of penguins!
