  1. Hello, thank you for sharing this information on the traditional embroidery process. I am looking for a used perforation machine like the one pictured, and am having a lot of trouble finding one. Any ideas where I can go to find one?

  2. Dear Joe,
    I am glad that you love the information in my post.
    About the machine, I have got mine from my family inheritance.
    I don't know where you can find such a machine
    Maybe in vintage sites?
    Let me know when you will find:-)
    Good luck!

  3. Hi Orly! What kind of ink do you use? Is it washable? Thank you! :)

  4. Hi Nichole,
    I use a special ink that I make by a recipe that I got from my family.
    The ink is washable, you can find it in my store:-)
    I saw your shop and your blog and I love it!
    I'd love to be in touch
