Special Request of the Week

One crafty and creative design request from an Embroidery Library customer is featured here every week. This week's request comes from Amy, who suggested these homespun saltbox houses with the words "Live Laugh Love." Saltbox houses are perfect for adding a cozy country touch to towels, tote bags, pillow covers, quilts, and more. Thanks for the fabulous idea, Amy! And be sure to check this space every week to see the latest requested design.
