More pictures from Baby Lock Tech

Needless to say, the arch is huge! This is me at the northern base.

Inside the hotel were all of these gorgeous displays. I see a Crazy Quilt Halloween pillow in my future!

I immediately thought of our Judy when I saw this cookbook cover. It's from the Domestic Goddess Amazing Designs collection.

Simple funky pillows made an eye catching display with embroidery, couching & ruffles.

I love this fish quilt!

A close up of the new sergers. Push the lever from serging to threading, turn the hand wheel till it clicks, put the looper threads in the threading ports & push the button - all loopers thread at the same time!

Miss N from the Sashiko machine factory in Japan demonstrated for us while Missy translated. I don't know who made the jacket, but it was gorgeous with the Sashiko stitching in the ditch.

Jim took a Jewel class and this was the view out the classroom window. I wouldn't have gotten anything done, I'd have been looking out the window at the people and the river the whole time. Talk about distracting!

A good time was had by all at Baby Lock Tech. Thank you to all of the staff at Tacony & Baby Lock for treating the dealers like kings and queens for our time there. It was hard to come home to no 10 am chocolate breaks & no 3pm ice cream breaks!

Watch the shop email as all the new products start to arrive!

Baby Lock Tech

I'm at the Baby Lock dealer convention in St. Louis - this is the veiw of the arch from our hotel window. The arch is a National Park with a great museaum underground that stretches from one base to the other. If you're ever in St. Louis - go up in the Arch!

Here are some pictures from the past couple of days.

This is the new Sashiko machine - very cool. Here are a couple of samples the educators have done with it.

A pretty top for a little girl's dress!

And a cute top for a play suit. Sashiko is everywhere here!

There are also new sergers where you thread ALL of the looper threads, push ONE button and all the loopers thread at once! I have that class tonight.

Jim took the class for the new Jewell software - VERY neat.

Today I took a class Eileen Roche - the editor of Creative Embroidery Magazine - did you know she grew up in Wildwood? I'm trying to talk her into a visit east to see the family and teach for us. Stay tuned! Here's my project from class today - stipple & applique in the Magna Quilt Hoop - all in one step!
