All my family is right handed too. My grandmother tried to teach me to knit but got fed up quickly because of me being a southpaw.
I ended up teahing myself. I have a bunch of crafting classes I teach at my school www.mistresskalpanasrealm.com

Boy that sucks. People can be so ignorant of so many things. My daughter who is also Pagan as well as quite as political as I am, swears she was born with a soapbox attached. emoticon I do feel it is my "job" in life to let these folks know the truth, if they choose to stay angry & frightened, oh well.

Back to the problem at hand ~ I don't know where you live but if you have a JoAnn's Fabric store near you, I bet there is someone there who can help you get what you need. Now if that's not possible you could check out the online store.

www.joann.com/joann/home/home.jsp You could call one closest city near to you or try an online chat. These women are amazing! If you explain what machine you have , I bet they can hook you up. Good luck. Let me know if that works.

Goodwitch,
I wish it was that simple. I do not have a program to auto digitize a design. The design has to be in a format that my machine can read. It can't read a jpeg. I know people who could do it in about 10 min but they are "good" Christians and would never touch a symbol of Satan. It's the reason I left the Hugs project. Gee, I guess that hate is more important then the cool ties I was sewing for the military.

I did get kind of snarky when people sent hate mail. I told them I would light a candle and say a blessing for them. Then I blocked their email addy. I such a bad witchy mommy. he he he.

Do a search at Google or another search site for small pentagrams. If your machine is like the one a friend of mine had then you can copy it from a print-out. You could even use a jewelry design, right? Also try some Wiccan or Pagan websites too. I really am envious of that machine too. What you're doing is AWESOME!

Miss Johnnie,
I love Urban Threads. What I am looking for is just a 3/4 inch pentagram that I can put onto a lace disc to be used as a pocket piece. I haven't found anything that small. I guess I am just going to have to figure out my program. I would do it by hand but I do almost 100 or so angels a month. That's just too much for me to do by hand.

I wish I had a portable hand craft to do when I'm out and about. All the creative family and friends are right handed. I'm left handed.

I was lucky enough to have a friend selling a sewing/embroidery machine. She gave me a very good deal and lots of tutoring. I can only do a 4X4 inch design. I've gotten very good at piecing things together.

I would love one of those machines. I do cross stitch by hand though. I am not sure where I would find info on that.

I do find crafts great for weightloss, though. It gives me something to focus on when I get cravings. Right now I am doing n owl cross stitch, working on teaching myself quilling and how to knit socks.

)O( Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again! )O(

OFF TOPIC for weight loss but right on for pagans. I do machine embroidery. Unfortunately I have not had the time to learn to digitize my own designs. Long story short... I want a pentagram design to be able to stitch out and send to pagan troops in harms way and for those at the local VA hospital.

A patient at the VA asked about one when I brought angels over to the clinic. He said he would have loved a symbol of his faith with him and he know of many others. His unit received embroidered crosses and occasional Jewish stars.

Thanks for anyone that can help or wants to know more about it.
Bright Blessings
