    Embroidery transfer methods

    I have embroidered since I was a young girl -- probably 8 or 9 years of age. I began collecting embroidery hot transfer patterns soon after age 10 (I'm now approaching 60 and still have most of the ones I purchased as well as my Mother's collection). Many of the patterns will no longer transfer with a hot iron, and I am looking for a method of continuing to use the ones I have. I have a visual impairment that causes some problems when I try to use a pencil and tracing paper under the image. I haven't tried the "punch and pounce" method but suspect that I would have difficulty with it. I am looking for some method of ttransferring -- I believe there is something similar to the material that is available to transfer photos onto quilt blocks which my son's partner used this summer. However, since I don't know what to ask for I haven't been able to find another way of using my old transfer patterns. If anyone can help, I would be grateful.

    if you have a scanner you can scan the images and then print them onto paper like this

    Or you can get erasable heat transfer paper from Joann's (I think) and scan the pictures and print them out. [/url]

    Thank you for the information. I may be able to purchase the sheets here. It sounds like a really simple method and that's what I was looking for :)
