Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous

Hello From Sew Fabulous,


We had a wonderful week and hope you did too! Last Saturday we had a day-long workshop for people with the bernette embroidery machines and we  had S-E-W much fun! We learned how to get our designs from the computer to our machines then how to open, manipulate and save designs on the machine. In the end everyone went home with a cute little embroidered scissor holder made completely in the hoop. Tomorrow we have a workshop with the bernette 77/79 machines to learn more about the sewing stitches and the machine capabillities.

FEBRUARY 1-14 - Guess the Number of Buttons Contest - We'll have a jar full of buttons and you enter the drawing by guessing the number of buttons in the jar. (Don't get too hung up on this picture because it isn't the one we'll have for this contest - sorry if you've already started counting.)
Rules of the contest are:

  • No purchase necessary to enter
  • Only one entry per person, per in-store visit between February 1 - 14, 2024
  • In the event of a tie, the winners will be drawn from the closest entries
  • Three prizes (yet to be determined) will be awarded

I know there's someone out there who needs a great backing for an outdoorsy-looking quilt. This fabric is bundled to sell so grab it when you get here - it's a great deal.


THURSDAY: February 1, Noon-5:00 - Sit 'N Sew. $3

Have a wonderful week! I hope to see you soon.
