BL: Thanks for the comment on the pincushion. The pattern is a new one of mine that I plan to debut it at the International Spring Quilt Market PA this May. If you really want one you can purchase it on my website at www.sewsimplepatterns.com. You would be one of the first to have it. thanks again deb
The two that I've taken classes at are the Quilt Patch in Tecumseh, MI and The Viking Sewing Center in Ann Arbor, MI. I love machine embroidery but I am still learning. I don't always get things hooped correctly. It's sort of hit or miss. Please suggest any shops that you go to. It's nice to know someone in the area. I don't know anyone locally that shares my passion for quilting. What types of bags do you make?
Love your shirt. I have made a couple of jackets. I agree that grandkids make life worth while. My brother-in-law once told me "Grand kids are God's way of thanking you for not killing your own." LOL We have four 2 boys and 2 girls with another one to make an appearance any day. Don't know what kind, but will love it no matter what. Can't wait to hold another baby!!!
Oh, I love Embroidery Library - wonderful designs on the cheap!! My embroidery machine is a Janome MC11000SE which I recently upgraded. I have only had Janome's starting with the 8000 in the early '90's - I have tried other machines too, but always stuck with Janome. I saw that 830 when it came out - it was introduced at a seminar with Alex Anderson when she came to Maine last October. I thought MY machine was pricey - WOW! I think I'll start a group called "Machine Embroidery Buddy's" so we could all chat and share ideas and resources.
