May newsletter from Ellen's Quilting Corner

Yay it's May!!!

I am excited to tell you the news we have for this month. Baby Lock has a few great deals to offer you for the month of May. Mothers day is right around the corner and we have something special for you to help celebrate. We are doing another Anita Goodesign classroom workshop this month. Many new items in the shop to tell you about.

     Capture the essence of your inspiration with the Baby Lock Spirit. This modern, embroidery focused machine has numerous features powered by Baby Lock IQ Technology™. The IQ powered Needle Beam for instance, highlights the exact needle position on the fabric to ensure perfect embroidery design placement.

Purchase the Spirit, an amazing embroidery only machine, and you will receive Ameila FREE!

     If you're on the go as much as you sew, then Amelia is the perfect sewing machine for you. At just 11.2 pounds, this lightweight sewing machine is easy to carry. Bring Amelia to classes, on road trips or to friends' houses.

Another great deal is the Baby Lock Sashiko... If you have never seen the beautiful and unique work of a sashiko then you are missing out! For the month of May this amazing machine will be 50% off. This deal has come straight from Baby Lock.

Mothers Day is Sunday May 11th
    We wanted to do something special for Mothers day so, after many ideas, we are going to have a sale... Yes thats right 35% off of Fabric, Kits, patterns and notions!!!
This great sale will start Tuesday May 13th and end Sat. May 17th.

Daves tip for the month:
A good rule of thumb for needle changing.
Start with a new needle, fill 5 bobbins and after using those 5 bobbins you should change your needle. Now if you are sewing through some pretty heavy material then I would suggest changing after about 2 bobbins. This will help to ensure you are always using a good sharp needle.
