The design worked out well till I got to the black stitching. It is really too dense and my machine is struggling to get through this. Any suggestions how I can finish it off.May 6, 2021, 05:18 PM
Hello Jasmin - I'm sorry you are having trouble. That set came out in 2014 and has been one of our most popular. No one has mentioned anything like this. What kind of fabric and stabilizer did you use? What size needle? What machine do you have? Is it the lines only or just the back outline around each section? Suz

There does't seem to be a small size option for the dragonfly? Do I need to purchase all sizes to get the small size designs?Mar 18, 2021, 09:08 AM
Hello - that set doesn't come in small. many of our designs are very detailed and don't look well shrunk down too much. The smallest is the Medium size for a 5x7 hoop.
Thanks for asking, Suz

If I have a large enough hoop can I set the design up to sew out at one piece? Have you done it that way? Thank youSep 6, 2020, 01:33 PM
Hello Dayna, I haven't done it, but it should work. Just put them together in your software.
Thanks - Suz

on the dragonfly design when do I trim fabric before satin stitch or after then put together?Mar 4, 2019, 05:54 PM
Hi Janet - after i embroider the sections, I roughly trim around leaving at least a half inch from the satin stitch. I do this to prevent it from raveling before I'm ready to stitch them together. Then I trim each one right before I stitch them together right up against the satin stitch.
Thank you - Suz

Lorraine WisemanMay 2, 2017, 08:28 PMThis design is absolutely gorgeous when stitched out. Sincere thanks to the artist and Suz for their beautiful work.
I made it into a tote and won first for machine embroidery in three local agricultural shows (Australia)
Carmel LeonardDec 7, 2016, 07:47 PMThis was my first stained glass project & I am so very happy with the way it turned out. It was so easy to stitch & put together. I had it framed & almost everyone who sees it on the wall stops to have a closer look.
