View Full Version : Nepali calligraphy for a quilt

5th December 2008, 17:11
Can anyone help please? I am making a quilt as a gift for a Nepali living in this country. I normally add a small piece on the back of my quilts along the lines of "John's Quilt" and then some other appropriate words and the date. I can transfer a jpeg image onto fabric and wondered if anyone would be kind enough to write this in Nepali characters for me? I think it would mean a lot to this person. Many thanks

Just want to point out, it's worth verifying the translation. I'm sure manepali means well, and understands that on the Internet that things should be verified. Afterall you wouldn't want to screw it up. My Nepali isn't great, but I stared at this for about 20secs to test my Nepali, and I can verify it is right.
