I just bought a new/used Bernina 630E. I have never really wanted to do machine embroidery (I love hand embroidery). Since the embroidery module came with the machine, I figure I should at least try some. The designs that I like are ones that look like hand embroidery, with just an outline of a design, not a lot of fill in of thread, hope that makes sense. I have looked at some online designs, but I'm not really finding much that I like. Is that type of design called something else? I have small grandchildren who I sew for and I would like to add some very small embroidery to some of the clothing I make for them, are there designs as small as an inch? Thank you, as you can tell I know nothing about this subject!

I've seen some under blackwork before, which may help while you look. Might also try under verde work or crimson work, since I find those for hand embroidery frequently.

Go to urbanthreads.com as they have a lot of contemporary designs with one color. I don't like a lot of filled designs either and have found that this site has many "wispy" styles of embroidery.

For endless inspiration, go to www.colonialpatterns.com, where you'll find mega patterns for old-fashioned transfer patterns, many of which are designed for redwork. You'd have to digitize them for machine embroidery, but you'll find plenty of ideas. Perhaps, though, you already know about Aunt Martha's patterns -- the company sold patterns to my mom when she was a young girl. Check out the "floral teapots, 3898" transfern -- I did the tulip pattern by hand in redwork and turned it into a delightful pillow for a dear sewing buddy.

Happy sewing.

There is an embroidery website named

Perfect Little Stitches

You may find some small outline or redwork type designs on that site.

Also, I suggest you subscribe to

Stitch Fun News

They have great machine embroidery advice and tutorials, and also offer some interesting machine embroidery website designs for the various machine embroidery digitizers on their list.
