As I purchased my embroidery machine online, and don’t know anyone who has one, I have basically been learning on my own as I go. Like anything else, the best way to learn is to jump right in, and this candle project was exactly that! So I am going to be compiling a list of Learnin’s to share in my next post. Stay tuned!
