Sew-Easy Designer Necklines

There’s an easy way to transform an ordinary knit T-shirt into a shirt with a designer neckline. The makeover is accomplished with just one embroidery design that has three easy elements: placement embroidery, decorative embroidery, and a neckline transformation!

    A few years ago I purchased designer necklines Serial number JTTY-VSV8-PC54-KNMC. Well, I’ve finally gotten to use the cd, but it will not register. It says registration limit exceeded. Can you help? Thank you

    Nancy, Your 8 x 8 hoop will work great for anything demonstrated in a small hoop.

    I had bookmarked this, so I could buy the Designer Necklines –One Step T-shirt Makeovers, when I purchased a larger embroidery machine than my current 4 x 4 max hoop machine. Well today I bought the King of Embroidery Machines.. the Enterprise with all the upgrades, software, jumbo hoop and hat driver. I am so excited, BUT want to know can I still use your Designer Necklines on this machine or does it require to be able to sew such as the Ellisimo you demo on? Let me know. I sure am hoping for an absolutely YES!

    I was embroidering on a saitwshert that I had made into a jacket (one of Nancy Zieman’s patterns). I got up from the sewing chair in front of the machine to let the dog out the patio door (in another room). It was a lovely day, so I admired the view while waiting for the dog. I returned to my sewing room (I was away less than 5 minutes!) and I knew something was wrong. The machine was embroidering beautifully but the chair I had vacated had moved! And, it had bumped the embroidery arm. Yes, I had matching designs, but the left side looks nothing like the right side. The bump offset my carefully-placed design and carefully-hooped jacket. I do wear the jacket as a reminder to stay with the machine when embroidering and/or to move the chair away from the machine if I need to get up!

    Thank you for this great video!
    I am very new to embroidery and have just received a Quattro 2..
    I would REALLY like to try this but I see that is calls for a 5 x7 hoop and my Quattro does not have this size but does have a 8 x 8 and I wanted to see if you think this would work for making the T’s or if that is to big?

    thanks for you help :-)

    I have a Pfaff 2144 embroidery machine and the hoops,etc., which go with it. Can I use these necklines and designs on my machine?

    I have just purchased a Ellisimo and I am so excited! your videos inspire me. I am taking my second & third free classes tomorrow. This machine is amazing and I still can not believe my hubby spoiled me so! I was trying to see the cost for the So Easy Designer Necklines. Do you sell items on line?

    Thank you for the video. It was so much more organized than what I have had to do for years to get clothing to fit from retailers! It now seems like creative sewing rather than remake & repair to have clothing that fits in a fair amount of time making the changes.

    Joann, Amy’s ideas and projects are all featured in her book, Vintage Notions.

    I watched your show shown on Monday, February 7, 2011, on Channel 11, New Hampshire Public Television, Comcast cable network. At the end of the show on creating scenes on fabric, your guest Amy Barichman, spoke about vintage correspondence courses. Was this information available in book form? Her book Vintage Notions sounds like it might be something different altogether.
    Also enjoyed show on making quilt projects from snapshots. Our family made a memorable visit to the Maine coast for my and husband’s 50th Anniversary. I’ve always thought of making a quilt with blocks using different pictures of this fabulous time together.
