2.  Some people favor a sharp needle while other prefer sharp or wedge needles (WEDGE NEEDLE: needle manufacturers tell advise that this needle point    type is recommended only for sewing leather - not for embroidery) ; and some like Teflon. Teflon helps prevent…

"The design in the middle is from the SAL at frog n me designs. The block I saw somewhere and enlarged it to fit my embroidery design. I didn't have a pattern."
