THE piece on embroidery last week drew a considerable response, writes Andrew Brown.

Margaret Beith of Chester wrote: 'The main problem with using a sewing machine attached to a computer is that the computer cannot do anything else while the embroidery is being worked. Most people I know who do embroidery or quilting have to share the computer with other members of the family who want it for quite useless pursuits.'

Mrs Beith recommends instead using a computer solely for the design of patterns.

She has also written a book: Computer-aided Embroidery Design; pounds 4.60; 14 Middlecroft, Guilden Sutton, Chester CH3 7HF.
