Embroidered Christmas Candle

I was searching for holiday decorating ideas when I found this project for embellishing a candle with lace embroidery over on These candles also make nice Christmas gifts. My mother made candles, and she always gave them as hostess gifts.

The instructions say to remove the design when the candle burns down and use it as an ornament, or as an embellishment for a scrapbook or greeting card. But typically these types of candles only burn down in the middle. You can extend its life by putting a tea candle or small candle in the hole and burning that instead.

    Hi Kamala,
    I have a se400 which I love but I have never been able to work out how to use the automatic threader. As far as I can see the thread doesn’t go anywhere near the needle. Could you please do one of your awesome tutorials and demonstrate how it’s supposed to work? I would be forever grateful.
