Small Business Saturday!

We had such a great time at the Small Business Saturday Event!  The cupcakes and hot spiced apple cider were a hit!  Lots of ladies came in their PJ's and some even decked out with a bit of humor!

I didn't get a chance to take too many pictures but I did get a couple of interesting ones!

Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us!  We really appreciate your support!!

Can you tell that Dottie is in Historic Club!  The top of her apron is one of the Amish with a Twist Blocks!  Don't you just love the bonnet?

Justine came as the "Fat Quarter Flasher!  Her bathrobe covered the fat quarters tied around her waist and she "flashed" everyone!  Justine has quite the sense of humor!

5D Embroidery Bootcamp 2012 Recap

5D Software Embroidery Bootcamp Class of 2012
We had a great attendance at our second Annual 5D Bootcamp that was held this past weekend at Mitchell College.  We broke into two classes, with Kothy teaching the beginning class and Diana the intermediate!  Everyone was well fed with great lunches especially made for us by Bob's Grill and Pie in the Sky!  The 7 layer salad from Bob's Grill was the biggest hit!

We went through about six or seven big bags of assorted chocolates and about 10 dozen cookies!  Lots of fuel for all the creating on the 5D Embroidery software!

Everyone had a great time and many will be back next year.  We hope to grow the Event, as it is a great way to have three days hands on, to learn and create with the 5D Software.

The third Annual 5D Software Bootcamp will be Thursday September 26 to Saturday September 28, 2013.  Check out the details on the 5D event page!

We are now taking reservations for the 5D Embroidery Software Bootcamp!  Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Class Two - this class is intermediate and for those who already own the 5D Embroidery Software Program.  To qualify for this class you will need a working knowledge of all the icons, and be able to move quickly thru the modules and how to save files.  This class moves at a fast pace!!!!  

Requirements for both classes!

A laptop updated to the latest version of your microsoft software.
If you own 5D Embroidery, go thru "smart update", and be sure your software is updated to the latest version!
