Hello to all My Friends,

Are you ready…… are you excited…….. for what, you say………start your holiday projects!!! We had our “Peppermint Party” July 29, and I want to thank you for making it a Super Party! It is so much fun sharing our ideas with you. I will continue to look for new patterns and projects. New fabulous embroidery projects has just come in from OESD, wait to you see the free standing Santa, Christmas Tree and the cute Turkey. So many holiday projects, did I mention the Sewing Machine!

Come to our Stitchin’ Time and work on the your project with other sewers. If you still need help with gifts, the Quilt Basket will be having a Sample Sale on Saturday, September 23. This is where we put our samples we longer use on sale. You will pay the sample maker so it is cash only. All sales are final.

We have more new Renaissance Ribbons, buttons and new fabrics. Have you noticed all the new garment samples? Kathy has been very busy serging-up a storm with lots of samples for you. Kathy will be teaching a t-shirt class, so I am ordering more knits.

The newest and very exciting new quilting tools are the many different template or rulers for machine quilters. Kathy will be teaching several classes on how to use the rulers.

Carolyn will be teaching a BOM, Stitcher’s Garden, starting in September. This is your opportunity to use your decorative stitches and different feet on your BERNINA Sewing Machine. Come in and see the beautiful quilt you will make. The 2017 Class Reunion will be held on Saturday, December 2, finish up your class projects and bring it for “Show and Tell”.

The entire Sewing Room Staff went to this year’s BU, held in Las Vegas. We had a great time learning, eating and walking too. We did have to walk a great distance just to get to our room, Sue said it was a quarter of a mile from our room to the front entrance of the hotel! Several of the staff met at 5am each morning to walk (not me, I know I should have).

BERNINA introduced new products including a NEW 5 series sewing machine, 880e plus and 790e plus! We have a new Midi Hoop, Echo-Quilting Clips for the #72 foot and a New Koala Sewing Station specifically for the 7 series.
