PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery: When Letters Become Words

Designs which use Letter fonts to construct words and phrases are quite popular these days. Whether you are designing quilt labels, adding names to projects, or writing a story for a child's cloth book, you'll find various styles of fonts, including numerous specialty techniques such as appliqué, felting, twin or wing needle, script, and so many more.


It's so easy to select Letter Fonts from the Gallery View.
