Embellishing the facts

I've just bought a Babylock embellisher off a friend - almost brand new and with features I'd not come across before. Though I've previously played on other people's machines, I spent a really enjoyable time today experimenting. The (as yet embryonic) results are shown below, waiting for stitch, to be cut up for cards or just put in my experiments box.


I'm going to enjoy this ...!

PS A demo is available here on youtube.

  1. Oh my, how beautiful! What's the diff between an embellisher and a machine needle felter?

    1. Hi Connie. As far as I know there is no difference. In UK, the two terms seem to be used interchangeably. I've added a couple of links to my post - one with a photo of my embellisher and the other a youtube clip (which I have yet to watch!)
