I have been monogramming for the past ten years. I started on a small brother machine that would only do 4 x4 designs, since then I have upgraded to the Brother Pr-600c. I am now on my second Pr-600. In the past year, I have also started teaching on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I teach an 8th grade science class. My background is in geology so 8th grade earth science is right up my alley.
