Those were very popular about 30 years ago.  I haven't tried any of the newer pens, but they should have only improved.

Has anyone tried to use those liquid "embroidery"' pens?? I think they are usually the brand "Aunt Martha". One gets a special cardboard circle backing to absorb excess liquid, I think.

I'm toying with the idea of using them to do heraldic "embroidered" emblems to sew all over an SCA overgown. I seem to recall one plate from Scheuette showing a medieval overgown (male? female?) with heraldic motif badges. IFIC they were eagles???

The idea of doing satin stitch Catherine Wheels on a zillion badges to sew onto a gown is not exactly appealing...

Where are those professional embroiderers when you want them? Or a team of personal female attendants with nothing to do all day.....
