Whether you do hand embroidery or machine embroidery, you will run into one of those situations where someone thinks you can work miracles. In Eileen’s case it was being asked to embroider her honey’s name and phone number on a strap for one of his pieces of hunting gear.

Luckily she had a friend who gave her a really great tip and she worked out a great way to make this embroider situation a snap. Learn her secret.
