    Default Redwork

    ANYTHING BUT redwork. Anything. Really tired of it. Color work is good. Looks like the old hand things I used to do. But just one color is boring to me. That's not why I have an embroidery machine.

    How about taking the little cowboy/girl sets and making them colorlines? I'd sure be buying some if they did. Grandkids.

    Have you tried doing the redwork in variegated threads. That makes it more colorful.

    Not the same at all. Still one color designs. Have you noticed that the prices on the redwork doesn't go up like the other things do? Other's feel the same way.

    For some projects, redwork is great. I try and use verigated thread to give the design some piazze...

    Look at Line Art Teapots. Been available for about 2 years. Maybe longer. I bought it when it came out. It's still selling for $7.50 while the new one color stuff is all still $2.50. And I still say the variegated thread doesn't make it look good, just different. Shawn, you need to look at what I'm saying.
