EDIT: To save trawling through loads of pages go along to p38 for the start of the lastest stuff from my new embroidery machine.

 

And here are a few recent towels @Feb2019

I couldn't find a dedicated thread, and only a mention of them in brief on other threads, so I thought I may as well start a thread on towels, clothes or whatever people use to wipe their baskets out etc.

 

We all know it's the little things in life . . . while I await delivery of some black towels from Coffee Hit I grabbed a couple of grey flannels from Tesco yesterday, dusted off my sewing machine and this was the result . . . .

It is years since I last used the sewing machine. It's capable of embroidering graphics but I don't have the digitising software on my Mac (it was on an old HP desktop) which is pretty annoying. I am going to try and find a way. Watch this space!

I figured I could have a good go at replicating your R58/knockbox/tamper/towel arrangement, but I don't have a sewing machine! I did design the logo for my engineer friend Thomas Woschnik in Germany, and eventually managed to obtain one of his fabulous turntables complete with natty cleaning cloth!

Mildred, admiration for your craft work, and because of that I'll take two dozen, please could you capitalize the M and the A, as well as lose the underscore. Also I would like my aviator in the bottom right corner, please contact me if you require a digital copy.

HeHe HaHa

 

PS feed that Minty bones not beans, health benifits are far greater

Well, seeing as you asked so nicely . . . .

 

 

NO!!

 

Actually, I could cope with Mine's A Beer (I think, if it will fit)!

 

Don't mention beanbags . . . Still finding the ruddy beans about the place!

I love your design ;)

Hope Minty has stopped popping them? With a name of Minty have you thought to provide a 'pea bag' as the replacement?

No, it went to the tip a while ago. I have been reminded we still have a Windows laptop and the original sewing machine cd and maybe it will work. The method is so dated. You plug a 'card reader' in, the card itself is like a 10x thick credit card. The info goes on that then it slots into the sewing machine.

 

I will go look in the office now for the model number . . .

A pcmcia card I would guess?

They are all great, Stanic :) love the linen ones especially.

 

Been hunting, found the cd and installed it on the laptop. It works. But nowhere to plug the card reader in.

I can still do a few words without it though . . .

Show me the holes/pins on that plug please. It is likely a serial port plug. On the laptop if there is a similar one but in blue that will be VGA. If there is another then that is probably what you need and if the pins need to be holes you just need a gender changer. If none at all a usb-serial converter lead might do it. any of these options should cost less than £3

This sounds promomising. We've got a Maplin nearby, we could nip there tomorrow. I'm tucked up in bed now, I will take a pic in the morning ;)

No!!!

 

Actually, probably a million things. One thing I did come across when I was up in the office was our set of 3 different size badge making machines. I'd forgotten about them. Forum badges?

Mildred you make me soooo jealous!

I've been desperately after a badge making machine for ages. I may pick your brains at some stage- thought id found a cheap solution but the available refills were 40mm and the machine 30mm.... (Kids toy really, but supposed to be effective on a small scale!)

 

As for stitching, is it single colour?

Badge machines are great fun! I reckon some of the toy ones are pretty good for a few badges. As long as you can get refills. When we got ours they came from the US, refills too. Bought big quantities (I was making them for Hen/Stag parties, Birthdays etc back then). I have a lot of blanks in stock!

 

Yes, the machine stops when you need to change colours. It can do pretty complicated designs. It is pretty time consuming, and scary when it gets muddled or tangled!!

 

Here are some examples I did years ago on a gardening top.

Yep it's the refills that are a hassle! They are either ridiculously expensive or totally wrong. If you need any 40mm blanks...though I think 40mm only fits one specific style of the badge it toy ones, not the proper kits.

I might be interested in a bit of embroidery. 38a3ed6184c35595f5956e26327cb932.jpg
