Amy Butler is in the process of putting together a website for followers that have made her items from her patterns.
I currently don’t have the address, but I sent some pics out and apparently where ever they are located they are going through severe weather and their communications are down.
If you are a Amy follower, you can go to her site that I have listed in my sidebar and sign up for her newsletter.
The email that I received from Amy and Diane today had a site for updates on patterns and what type of stabilizer that you can use instead of Timtex in her purses.
Has anybody seen her new book. She has some real cute items in there.
Fabric.com I believe has been sold to Amazon.com. I read a blur in SewNews magazine.
Martha Stewart is getting on the band wagon with Singer, Viking H and Pfaff.
Oh and if you didn’t see my comment regarding the Brother 12 head machine – costs can run from 12k to 14k. Interesting with the economy as it is now, do you think this was the time to come out with this machine? Wonder if there would be a possibility of a price reduction if they don’t sell. I wonder “if” like with the PR600 if you had a demonstration done, you could sign up for a free drawing, winning a PR600.
As I was glancing through my Stitches magazine I came upon an ad for the New Brother BE-1201B PC.

Wow amazing. Now take a breath Donna, you like your 6 Needle machine. But look… look at what you get, Donna you already have the fast frames. Look at the drool or am I foaming at the mouth – BIGGER BOBBINS. Donna you have all those bobbins that fit your machine, how are you going to get rid of all your L bobbins. Down Donna Down. Donna, Donna are you still with me… Oooo isn’t it pretty… see the optional Dell computer on the right side…. You already have a designated PC for your embroidery and you have your designated MAC for your other stuff. Looks like you have to buy the stand. I want to know how much it would be for just the machine and the hoops that I don’t already have… Aaron, time to call for a trade in.
Automatic lubrication system. Single cam-driven presser foot. Easy to use control panel. Memory retention. Individual Cap Frame Adjustment. OMG – Network Capability = network to other Brother single or multi-head machines for max flexibility in production runs. Control Software. OMG you can control needle speed as machine is stitching from your computer!!! DVD and CD capability. My body is twitching… You can put in a floppy disk drive and read other machine formats. You can store up to 45 designs in memory a total of 480k stitches. THUMP! I think Donna just hit the floor.
Okay I have to leave and eat.
