Is there help with machine embroidery
Mrs.Gooch answered:
Hi Jean! I don't understand what you mean. Do you own an embroidery machine? The shop you bought it from should provide lessons. I am sure Craftsy has classes on machine embroidery.
Lv Lucy asked:
This dress is absolutely stunning. I would have liked to make our granddaughter's Christening dress but was not sure enough of myself. You've inspired me to try! Thanks for sharing your beautiful, treasured work of art.
Mrs.Gooch answered:
Thank you, Lv Lucy. I hope you do make a Christening gown . They do take a long time to make. Martha Pullen's book 'Elegant Sewing for Baby" has the most beautiful patterns in it. I think this dress is the sixth gown I have made from this book. Best of Luck!
