I'm back!

Things have been pretty hectic for the past year. We moved into a new house and I started working feverishly on my business. That meant no time for my true business of sewing/crafting/teaching. But that's over now. I have a lot more time available now that both kids are in high school. So exciting for them but sad for me. One will be going off to college next school year and the other will be extremely busy with ROTC and band.

On the plus side, I picked up doing some admin work for a couple of pages on Facebook. I just wrote a tutorial on how to do Heat Transfer Vinyl on a t-shirt. It's for newbies to using a cutting machine, specifically the Silhouette. I've had mine for many years. In fact, it's the first version and they are now on the 3rd version. I've had it for around 10 years and it works very well so why replace it, right? But don't let that stop you because even Cricut users and US Cutter users can still get in on this tutorial. You just have to adjust your settings for your specific machine.

I'm specifically using a design from Craft Genesis which is what the group shares. All creations from Craft Genesis. If you've never heard of them, they are new but the company behind it isn't. Embroidery Library and Urban Threads are very familiar names to embroidery fans. They are all sibling sites. I like the sound of that better than sister sites. Who says it has to be a girl? Ha ha!

If you're interested in getting your hands on this basic tutorial, come over to our Fans of Craft Genesis group and join. If you're interested in joining the Fans of Embroidery Library or Urban Threads Embroidery Fans groups you can click on the names too.
