Not sure if any of you saw this on Embroidery Library, but they have posted a few snowflake designs free for download with a request to make a few for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. You can read all the details here.

I think this is a wonderful idea and if you can pass this along to any fellow embroiders, that would be great. It's a wonderful cause and even better that we can help with something we love doing!

Thanks for this post, I had missed it when I was at EL. I downloaded the snowflakes and will make some. Great idea isn't it.

I made 20 small snowflakes for the children and 6 medium size for the teachers. Will be sending them out by Dec 27. The PTSA would like them no later than Jan 13. I got my snowflakes from Embroidery Library. I made one snowflake for my tree.

I just started working on them. I have the bigger snowflakes so it's time consuming. My goal is 26 but I will send what I have if I can't make the 26.

The small ones takes about 27 minutes at 600 spm. It takes a few good hours to complete 26 and coffee to stay awake watching your machine work. It feels good what I did.. From what I read they are going to hang them in the classrooms.

I made 2 so far. For one of them I got some really pretty metallic-ey thin thread and had so much trouble! I quit and trimmed the edges.

I'll stick with the plain thread, that was very frustrating! I had so many nests underneath I was about to go crazy!

I stayed away from metallic threads. I used sulky 1127 and give the snowflakes an old time lace look. Light pink embroidery thread looks nice too.
