Machine Embroidery Monograms – Creating it yourself.


I’m so excited to post this! I’m new to the whole world of monograms. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve used my embroidery and fonts to make labels for quilts, but never just to put a letter on it.

I grew up in AK and I have to say the whole time growing up I can’t recall a single person who had anything monogrammed.

I didn’t even realize it was a thing.

Fast forward and I’m living in the south deep south, monogramming is a crazy addictive thing that everyone does. Sometimes you’ll see girls with monogram boots, monogram top, monogram hair bow. That’s some monogram build-up. 🙂

So now I’m a monogram convert… yikes!

I really like making my own monograms in the software because I can create exactly what I want.

Here’s a tutorial that shows an easy way to make monograms in bernette embroidery customizer software.

This is what I use for monograms (and quilt labels – tutorial to come), but if you really start to get into the monogramming thing or want even more features, I would check out monogram wizard. Here’s the link to the Making Monograms Tutorial.

Enjoy and Happy Embroidery.

Transferring Machine Embroidery Designs from Internet to machine. Here’s an easy way!


Today I sat down with a really nice lady and we did a private lesson on her embroidery machine. It was fun!

During this lesson I realized, that machine embroidery to her is just like the ipod to me.

It’s like this, I listen to my ipod daily when I’m quilting but, I hardly ever transfer new music from my itunes library and when I do want to add more songs, I can never remember how and have my teenager show me…. again.

Sometimes, I have to decide if getting new music is really worth the attitude he’s gonna throw. Blah – Teens!

Well, I’m not gonna throw any attitude at anyone, because when it comes to technology, if it’s not a sewing machine, I’m lost!

This got me thinking, I’m going to do a tutorial about transferring designs from internet purchase to cover tutorialembroidery machine, using a usb stick. That way – it’s out there and if anyone needs a little review on how to do it, it’s available…. attitude free! 🙂

I hope this is useful. And if anyone knows of a tutorial on the ipod… let me know! Happy Embroidery and Quilting!
