  • Super idea. However, I can’t download the design as I live in the UK, despite having a Brother machine. Please, Brother, extend your site so that UK sewers can download designs; other US sites are accessible in the UK.
    Regards Barbara Peter

    • Barbara Peter I am in UK and it downloaded fine for me. I did have my pe design unit plugged in to my laptop to save it to file so maybe thats why it saved ok

    • Hello Linda,
      Sorry for the confusion! Please note that the Snowflakes shown are available on iBroidery BIC-ATGASF026 and BIC-ATGASF025. The design on the front is in the FREE downloadable Zip file.

  • What a pretty project, elegant, but it looks doable for even me! I think we need one with palm trees for our Florida holidays! 🙂

    • Hi Donna,
      Palm trees sound so fun!! Please be sure to post a photo on our Facebook or Instagram page and tag us at @BrotherSews and #StitchingSewcial! We’d LOVE to see it!!
      Thank you for stopping by and come again!

    • Hi Donna,
      I love the idea of customizing this quick and easy project for Florida’s climate. The use of this palm tree design would work well.
      You could use your built in alphabet and the array feature to arc Merry Christmas text above the trees.
      On the back, instead of the snowflake, you could use this nice redwork holly design. As you know, we do have holly in Florida and it says Christmas as well as the snowflake! This design would enlarge nicely to fit the area. Happy Christmas sewing!

  • Janice this is a wonderful project. I plan to make some of these to have on hand for next Christmas. I think I might also make a few with monograms to make for my sister’s and sister-in-laws to go with their aprons I am making. I love your projects and I am so glad to get projects here for my Brother machine

    • Thank you Kay for the kind words to Janice! We love her projects too and are so happy so many of you agree!!
      Thanks for the comment!!

    • Kay, I’m so glad that this project appeals to you. Having them on hand for next Christmas is a great idea. As hostess gifts for holiday parties and other occasions, they would be ready to go. What a great idea to make a monogrammed set to go with aprons you are making so lovingly for your relatives! Having a Brother machine makes gift giving fun and easy. Thanks for writing, Kay.

  • Janice, i really do enjoy all your projects and your creativity in designing them.i am most inspired by the easy ones such as the set of coasters. It will make a lovely hostess gift

  • Thank you, Rebecca Kay. I agree that this would make a very nice hostess gift and such gifts should not be too over-the-top. This coaster set could be made for any season or simply with no seasonal theme. Thanks for your comment.
