Craftsy Class Event

One more post!! Craftsy is having a class event this weekend with 50% off their top classes! The sale ends Sunday (7/10) at midnight! You can click HERE to check out the classes on sale. As always, once you buy a class, it’s YoUrS!! You can watch it as many times as you want. You can take notes and learn from the pros! You can learn how to paint, make jewelry, take great pictures, decorate cookies, learn how to knit or quilt or make socks, and the list goes on and on! A couple of my favorites are Product Photography at Home and 20 Things Every Machine Embroider Should Know, as well as How to Start a Machine Embroidery Business! Look through all of the classes available and see if anything catches your eye! 😉


Everything Embroidery Market WINNERS

Happy Friday folks! I did a ticket giveaway on my last blog post for the Everything Embroidery Market coming up next month. You all commented up a storm and I LOVED reading all of the resolutions and ideas for the new year! On Tuesday I used to generate 2 lucky numbers and counted down the comments to find our winners. Of course, both people who commented only left a first name, and I didn’t think to even ask for an email address or SOMETHING on the comments! So far these 2 have not contacted me, so I thought another blog post might do the trick! If you are my Megan or Renee and are interested in attending the EEM, please email me at!! If for some reason you aren’t interested and just commented for fun, shoot me an email and let me know so I can chose another winner! Hope to hear from you and thanks to everyone for commenting! blog winner 2 blog winner

Everything Embroidery Market Chattanooga


Happy 2015 from Applique Cafe!! It’s 1:52 pm and I am still in my pajamas!! We toasted the New Year with the NYC ball drop with some friends and our 15 kids last night, then came home with 20 minutes to spare in bringing in the central time zone New Year here in Alabama! What are your “resolutions” for 2015? I never really make any or keep any, but have a few things in mind for this year. I was texting with friends yesterday discussing wrinkles, waistlines, gray hair and talk of root canals, crowns and needing braces. 😛 There’s a hefty resolution or two in there I think! Business-wise, I would love to blog more (HA – we have all heard that one before…), somehow come up with more new designs (, and utilize different social media outlets more in our business (since Facebook has become a total joke). Follow Applique Cafe on Instagram, Pinterest and even Twitter! We are still on Facebook, but lately negative 3% of our followers even see what we post. So, BLOG, INSTAGRAM, PINTEREST & TWITTER! Got it? Good!

Is anyone going to the Everything Embroidery Market next month? Anyone want to? It’s February 20-21st (Fri-Sat) in Chattanooga, TN and Applique Cafe will be there! I have some tickets to give away, so who wants to win a couple of them???? All you have to do is comment on this post with your NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION(S) and I will chose 2 winners randomly on Sunday! That’s this Sunday, January 4th, 2015! Be sure to FOLLOW EEM on Facebook to keep up with announcements and everything else you need and want to know!
