In my sewing and quilting world it seems like I am always using a computer.  Its a good thing that I like my computer.  We have a very special relationship and understanding.  Because of this I'm always trying new things.  True Type Fonts are one of my favorite things to try with my computer and sewing world.

So now that you are wondering how can a true type font be used in our sewing studios, let me show you a few ideas of how to use truetype fonts.
