trying to get my daughter into sewing. the other day she asked if she could have a go on my new singer XL-400. showed her whats what and left her to it. after getting back from shopping she had found some silk material and had a go of the redwork designs i had. a big beam on her face look what i've done. it looked great but i asked why have you done the design in red on cream silk. well if i did it in cream you would not see it drrrrrrrr.

That's cute. We all would like to have our children learn as least the basic sewing techniques.

I have been thinking of getting the XL 400 by Singer. Did you get the software with it and if so is it easy to use? Would you recommend it? I have the Singer XL 6000 and Love it. I keep looking at the XL400 and wondering if this is something I should have. Could you give us a review?

You are so lucky to have a daughter that shows even the tiniest interest in sewing/ embroidery. My two are hopeless. Maybe my grand daughter will show some interest when she is older. Sarah.

Maybe I have a problem cause I don't know what she did wrong. I would want it to stand out too so please help me with why it was wrong. I am serious. Was she going to make the silk into something then? If so, what? Help, I really don't know what was wrong with it.

she was making a pillow cover for her daughters doll pram. and just wanted a design on it. she thought because the redwork design was red she had to do it in red. i explained to her it was done in that colour so you could see it. luckyly she still had it hooped up so she redid it with a thicker thread and hey presto it worked.

Well done for her.
They were "redwork" designs after all.
Hugs to you both
