    Really stupid question!!

    Ok so a rather silly question, but based on the fact that none of you can see me blush, i'm going to ask anyway............

    I have been embroidering some items on my sewing machine, I physically sit there and move the fabric around, appliqué bit's and bob's etc

    Obviously when you say hand embroidered people think you sat there with a needle and thread and did it all with no assistance from a machine, so I guess calling it hand embroidered is out

    Hmm...I think I would expect it to be done 100% by hand, but I'm not sure what the standard is.

    I think it is a great question! To me, considering I do not know how to use a sewing machine, it seems more complicated to do it on a machine. HEHE I often wondered about that with quilts too. Some people make them on sewing machines but they are really handmade to me. It takes a lot of time to cut the squares out. It takes a lot of time to piece them together. To me, something that is not handmade would be something made in the factory which is mass produced. Of course I am not sure how other crafters think about this. I would love to hear what others have to say.

    I think making them with your machine to assist you still qualifies as a handmade item.

    I too think it should be done by hand only.
