Road Trip!!


I am super excited about a SHOPPING EVENT coming up in February 2015! The Everything Embroidery Market will take place in Chattanooga, TN on February 20-21st. Check out their Facebook page to keep up with who will be there and everything you need to know! The website is to register, find hotel information and much more. Who all will be there??


ME!!!! ……. I missed the Applique Conference this year so I’m excited to be there to see everyone and get to shop, network and learn some new things! Best of all, I WILL have a display table but won’t be teaching or anything so it’ll be a stress-free and fun trip! Not that teaching is stressful but you know what I mean… 🙂

Who else?

Sassy Kid Blanks, Southern Home Blanks, (my favorite!!), Monkey Tails Blanks, All Stitched Up by Angela/Angela’s Fabric and Trim, web designer just to name a few ~ LIKE their Facebook page to find out who else is coming. There are other applique/embroidery website friends coming too! I hope to see you there!


  1. Hey-
    This conference looks like fun! Maybe another girls only road trip! I had so much fun at the Birmingham COnference- didn’t get to go this yr—- wonder which hotel is better or closer to this convention center? Do know where most are staying?
    Thank you for the post-

  2. I live about an hour away in Knoxville, so I’m going. I can’t wait!!

  3. Hi Rosemary, I’ve got a PR600ii and a high school girl has been helping me over the holidays. Her mom bought her a PE770 and they are asking me what software to get. I use BES Lettering, but should I tell her to get Sew What Pro? Thanks.

    • I am not familiar with BES Lettering!? SWP would be a good starter software b/c she could see her appliques, merge stuff together and also merge embroidery fonts together. Then she could get a font software if she needs it down the road (which are usually more expensive)!

  4. Thanks for sharing the information regarding this shopping event. I have liked their Facebook Fan Page to get the latest updates regarding this embroidery and shopping event.
