• The free Bats Alphabet completes this week with the letter Z, available free in 4" size til 25 October 2018.


  • Linus loves the Great Pumpkin and there's no reason we can't do the same. Click the link to find  this week's newest freebie in 4" size. And if you like, add the name "Charlie Brown" beneath using the bonus lettering included with the design.


  • Watch for the new Free Alphabet Series beginning next week -- a lovely chain stitch script based on the hand-embroidered lettering my Mum used to put names on our Christmas stockings when I was a kid. For best results, you might want to stitch this font with cotton thread. It will be free in 4" size, starting with upper case letters and continuing through lower case and numbers, but you can purchase it in smaller sizes if you wish.



  • I'll be back next week and will be reinstating several of the pages in time for Christmas crafting. And in the run-up to the holidays, I'll be adding more brand-new Christmas-themed designs and in-the-hoop ornaments.
  • The roll-out of the expanded freebies collection is complete for now, with more than three hundred and fifty designs, including alphabets -- and all free! I will be adding to it once I am back in harness.
  • Most of the catalog pages will be restored next week, so you'll be able to order from most every category.
  • I came across this great video from Steve Carmichael about DIY one-color screenprinting for T-shirts and bags. It's a fun project idea and so clearly presented that I thought you might also enjoy watching.
  • And speaking of Christmas ornaments . . . . here's a link you might want to check out. It isn't an embroidery page, but if you enjoy crafting hand-made ornaments, you'll find lots of DIY ornament ideas.
  • Check out the FAQ page for a short piece on using plastic as stabilizer for small embroidery projects. Find it partway down from the top of the page.
  • Did you know? This site contains no advertising and has no affiliations with any other site. I do not track visitors and I do not share personal information from correspondents.

I am still on hiatus from the site

but will be returning next week! Until then, I still have limited access to the site and to e-mail but will do my best to respond in a timely fashion to queries and orders.

The suspended pages will be back up with next week's update, along with some brand new Christmas designs.  In the meantime, if there's anything from the collection that you really need to have before the 26th of October, please e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

  • Free designs are still coming. The new free Alphabet Series will commence next week in 4" size. It's a lovely chainstitch script that is perfect for adding names to Christmas stockings. In fact, it's based on the hand-embroidered lettering my Mum used to put names on my sister's and my childhood stockings.
  • Featherweight-related designs are still available and I will continue to fill those orders.
  • The Free Designs collection now includes most of the freebies I've shared over the life of the site. You may already have recognized several new ones among them and possibly noticed that several of the older ones have been re-digitized. I'll be leaving the whole collection up for the foreseeable future and will be adding to it periodically.
  • Christmas is coming! Starting in two weeks I'll be rolling out several new Christmas designs and projects including some additional mini-stocking designs and tiny toys to add to your tree. Next week's update will be Halloween-themed.

With my thanks and very best wishes to all,



  • Andrea has been making quite a splash with her custom slipcovers for  Featherweight Cases!

Click here to find the embroidery designs she used to make her slipcovers.

If you'd like to ask Andrea to make one of her beautiful case covers for you, please contact her directly.

She's found lots of creative ways to use the Decal Set designs, and has made many different styles and variations since the first case cover!

For a complete gallery of her creations, look for her Pinterest Board called "Singer Featherweight Covers and Accessories" or find her on Facebook under "Andrea’s Custom Featherweight Covers”.

Andrea doesn't sell patterns for the cases, and neither do I, but if you'd like to make one for yourself, I've posted some helpful links on the Featherweight Case Pack page. 

If you are wondering about the font(s) she has used, I understand that the lettering is a composite of letters and frills from various embroidery fonts that she selects to suit each project.

I do not have this font at the moment, but you may be able to find something suitable among the lovely script fonts available from Designs by JuJu or Applique Corner, or google embroidery script fonts to find more options.
