Hello Cuties, can anyone tell me where I can find an alphabet, both upper case and lower case, that is done in a single line stitching, i.e. no satin stitch or fancy letters, to look like it is handwritten/printed. I would like to use this for embroidering labels/messages for my quilts. Cursive will be good, but also need block letters if the label is for a child who can read. Hope you can help. Thanks in advance. Hugs, Sheila

I posted yesterday that I sometimes use '1001 Free Fonts'. I would like to clear up any confusion. I have a software program called SewWhatPro and I can convert fonts made for PC's etc. Sorry if I was not very clear. Sarah.

Apex has one. The fast running stitch.

Designs in Stitches has a couple of single line cursive alphabets, one has sewing needles. I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but they're awfully pretty. Hugs, Marji

Just had to search this one: Story Blankets from theyummyfactory.com. A cutie found this nice font who is making baby blankets. Looke very cute :o)
For the block letters maybe the casual font from GG-design?

Jolsons has a handlettered font in 4 sizes.
SkeldaleHouse had a tiny writing for their yahoo-group.
The Diana-font from SICK looks a little like those handwritings.
Maybe one fits for your needs :o)

I have just checked Jolson's. They were kind enough to send a sample letter which I will try tomorrow. Skeldale House looks a very nice site, but couldn't find the tiny writing, will look again. Hugs, Sheila

The tiny font was a file for their yahoo-group (I cancelled some groups so I cannot look if it is still there) , don't think it is on their website.

I had not been to Jolson's before. They have good prices!

I've been looking for one for a long time, just a single line that's not goofy! Please post it if you find one!

Have you tried 1001 free fonts and then convert them to your format? Sarah.
