I joined my local chapter of the Embroidery Guild. Once you join, you are asked to make a name tag. They give you all the supplies and you are supposed to get it done within three months. Not too hard of a task!
This is the start of mine. The back ground was left blank in the instructions, but I thought it looked too bare so I picked some thread from the box and added it in. Hopefully I can finish before our next meeting.
