Thanks Judy, Katherine, Megan and the "angels" for a wonderful three day Ellisimo event at "Needle in a Haystack." I'm excited to try all the new things I learned about the Babylock Ellisimo Embroidery machine. The projects we did were so much fun and I can't wait to spend another fun-filled weekend with you!

"I have experienced twice staying at the barn.  Both times were a wonderful experience and great learning opportunities.  Jeff and you have created a beautiful place to stay and allow us to create and share our love of sewing.  Your attention to detail and wanting everyone to be  comfortable did not go un-noticed.  A big thank you!"

Scrap Therapy with Joan Ford



~We all had such a glorious time and enjoyed meeting our new American 'cousins'.  Your hospitality is by far way above and beyond.

 All the way home we raved about the time we had.  What's better than 4 days of sewing, shopping, eating, laughing and wine?  I so enjoyed your stores and probably have enough fabric to last a few years (not to say I wouldn't buy anymore!!)

 I have nothing negative to say about the whole experience.  I am still glowing this morning.

Hugs,
