Ross and I are having a fabulous time in Arizona for the PFAFF National Convention. We arrived a day early so we could visit the Grand Canyon, a first for both of us. What a spectacular place!
Speaking of the PFAFF conference, they have launched the new Creative Icon 2, which is an amazing machine for crafters, garment sewists and quilters alike. My favorite features are 1) the stitch guidelines projector, 2) the grid feature projector 3) the embroidery editing and placement features and 4) the embellishment attachment tool that allows you to sew on beads, ribbon, yarn and cording. There's so much more about this machine that I can't begin to tell you about all it's wonderful features here. One of the machines being used here at the conference will be on it's way to our store on Wednesday. Stop in and see this incredible beauty.

WEDNESDAY, Mar 30 - 6:00-8:00: Precision Piecing Session 3 (ENCORE). Same thing as for Saturday.
We're planning a 'Quilt Label" event. Since Dawn and I went to Chicago to learn the BERNINA Designer V9 software for digitizing, we thought it would be fun to have an event where we can share what we learned. Actually, Dawn has been busy developing and digitizing labels so we can demonstrate how easy it is to create and stitch out your own labels. When we have the details worked out, I'll put it in the newsletter so you can make plans to join us.
Have a wonderful week.
Heidi, Ross & the Team.
