Is It Spring Yet?
It’s kind of funny, but as soon as January rolls around my thoughts move to spring. We have at least 3 months of winter left so I’m in for a long tortuous time of it.

Pantone’s color of the year

Speaking of spring did you see the newest color of the year from Pantone? It’s called Greenery. I have several plans for using it in garments.  There should be no trouble using it in spring time designs. Do you like the color? I’m a big fan.

Our newest issue has lovely spring inspired designs and projects. My favorite is the Valentine treat bag by Lisa Archer. Be sure to check out the new issue, we have a new column called Quilt This from Lori Baker. This series is focused on quilting for the beginner, or for those that need refresher tips.

Since this is the first newsletter of the New Year, I need to know how you did on your sewing resolutions. I unfortunately, did not get to the embroidery machine as much as I planned. But, there’s a whole brand new year ahead. What about you? Let me know what machine embroidery plans you have for 2017.

    I am going to be a first time grandmother in 2017! So I plan on embroidering a lot of baby items, including burp cloths and bibs. I would love to see baby designs this year!

    I am making monogrammed burp cloths for my niece’s baby she had just two months ago last year. I am going to make a Christmas design with snowmen on a red dish towel for our house. I will see what I will embroider after that. I also quilt, so quilting takes a lot of my time.
