Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous

Hello From Sew Fabulous,

Here we are - another Monday. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We've been busy taking in fabrics, sewing machines and notions - more on that later. We just met with Moda and Quilting Treasures vendors today and ordered more new fabric lines. Be sure to check out the Class Calendar on the website because we've added 3 new classes for beginning sewists. 

Bernina has introduced the 770 Upgrade and the new Designer Plus V9 for embroidery digitizing. Bernina published a great video showcasing all their new products. Check it out @ BERNINA New Products Webinar with BERNINA of America Educators - YouTube. If you're interested in these exciting new items, please give me a call at 269-459-1725. 

Scarlet Stitches: Look at this spectacular line. It's beautiful! Lonny has made a sample of this pattern that will soon be hanging in the store. You really have to see it to appreciate the magnificence of the fabric and quilt pattern (not to mention Lonny's workmanship!).

I have more good news! We have the fabric for the Astral Vision quilt - even the panel came in today! We'll be putting kits together this week. 

We have lots of stabilizers for those of you 'machine embroiderers'. We have several acrylic rulers and cutting mats (small to extra-large). We also have several new By Annie patterns including some great back-to-school projects like "Laptop Computer Carrier II", "Get Out of Town Duffle II" and "Ultimate Travel Bag".
