I spent all day Friday and Saturday at an Anita Goodesign Embroidery Party hosted by the Fabric Art Shop in Lake City. I got to learn a few new techniques. The raccoon is a coin purse, the mouse is a stuffed toy, and the bear is a bookmark.
I know I shouldn't have but I signed up for the All Access VIP club. I won the 50 States collection. That's a $400 value that I got for free just for signing up for a collection.
Not only did I get a ton of free designs/collections, I'll also get 6 free designs/projects each month for the next 12 months. Depending on the projects I receive this year, will determine if I want to continue this club next year.
I would love to upgrade to the Janome 12000 model because it has a frame that's 9" x 12" but I really like my 9900.
