    I just ordered this last night after watching the live chat. It sounds amazing. Just from what Vanessa showed on the live chat, I can pretty much conclude this collection of products will rate a five star***** review when it arrives.

    I’ve been a machine embroiderer since 1977 when I learned how to do free motion machine embroidery using the fantastic 1970s era Elna machines (still have mine from then, and it is above all, my most loved machine).

    I happened to win a combo machine with a 5×7 hoop capacity in a drawing in 2011. I was more excited for the modern sewing machine part, and didn’t really pay too much attention to the embroidery part at first. A few months later I took a usage class, started attending more classes and before you know it, I was hooked! Since that time, I’ve been blessed with SIX grandchildren, and loads of great-nieces/nephews. I make for them all the time, and they sure love it when I can embellish things for them with embroidery designs. The older ones (5 and 6) have started specific requests for things, and I love it!

    Anyway, I’ve become more proficient and a year ago purchased a stand-alone embroidery machine (Brother NQ1400E) for the bigger hoop capacity and better editing functions. I always like to try new product, and so your box of items seemed like a good way to do that. I look forward to seeing what else you offer.

    I’ve been a follower of your blog for year, and have wondered why with all your crafy-ness, you hadn’t really gotten into machine embroidery before. After watching your chat, I get it now, and am so glad you are finally combining your knowledge of all things sewing+embroidery and sharing with us. Like I said, I consider myself fairly proficient now (and have even won quite a few ribbons in local competitions), yet there is always more to learn, and seeing your take on machine embroidery will now doubt sharpen my own skills.

    I got my order a few days ago. Thanks for the quick service. Just a question though….how soon till I’m able to get the embroidery designs that come with the starter kit? I’m anxious to get going!

    My husband gave me a Bernette Chicago 7 for Christmas in 2015. It is a combination sewing/embroidery machine. I love to sew on it, and even though I saw demonstrations of the embroidery features in the shop, I have to admit I’ve been intimidated to try it. That combined with my lack of knowledge about different stabilizers, has prevented me from trying it out. After I saw Vanessa’s Live Chat I got excited to try it out. I ordered the kit and I received it just a few days later. It was packed so nice and I was very happy with my thread colors. I can’t wait for the embroidery files to hit my account so I can give them a try. They are so cute and I really liked the way Vanessa added them to the little change purse and zipper pouch.

    Thank you so much for your tutorials. I have learned so much from watching them. I’m looking forward to future tutorials about the stabilizers that are included in the kit.

    I am getting ready to purchase this kit and am wondering if the prewound bobbins are going to work in the Brother sb7900e? Super excited about starting this!

      Hi Sharon. Yes, the bobbins included in the kit will work fine for your Brother embroidery machine. They are Style A/Class 15 prewound bobbins. Thanks!

    Hello. I want to order this kit. However, there is no option to purchase. Perhaps you are out of stock. I thought I could pre order somewhere, (which is what i clicked on). How can I order this kit? I just purchased the brother embroidery machine from your link. I know your leaving the country next week. Would like to get this in the mail ASAP if available. Please let me know. Thanks!

    Hello Vanessa! I just have to tell you that you are a beautiful, talented, and gifted instructor in your own right. I love, love, love watching your YouTube videos. You are very clear and articulate in your instructions. Thank you! I am a beginner and I am on a mission to learn to sew. I have bought the Brother PE770 and a few others (for quilting and sewing, a serger, and a Janome sewing machine for my granddaughter). I am so excited to learn and make projects for my family, friends, and my church to raise money for the homeless. I do a lot of crocheting and enjoy floral arranging too. I have a Singer sewing machine that I bought years ago and it still works, probably cause I don’t use it much……lol. But this time I’m going to focus on sewing and I’ll work on my crochet projects while on the road, since I can’t sew in the car. I just want to let you know that you are amazing and I love your sewing techniques and your kind spirit! God Bless you and yours!
    I did want to ask you the same question that Michelle Lacayo asked. I too am interested in purchasing the Beginners Embroidery kit. Will it be available in the future? Also, what’s the best thread to use on the different machines that I own? Is it possible to perhaps make a dedicated video on the different types of threads and where one can purchase them. I searched your videos where I thought I could learn about them, but I still have so many questions on the brands, costs, types, and their uses. Again thank you for all you do to ensure a happy marriage between a woman/man and their sewing machine. Safe travels and have lots of fun! Abundant Blessings!
