Road Trip in the Midwest

Having a fabulous time in Missouri at Baby Lock headquarters!  A full week of intensive training with the nicest people around!  Everyone at the company has been unbelievably friendly and accommodating and we have learned lots.  The group that is training together is a super group from all over the country and we have been sharing ideas and information and bouncing our plans off of each other.  Two of the gals in the group are from nearby Jackmanns, which has two shops in Missouri/Illinois.  We took a road trip there last night and it was such an inspirational field trip!

There were so many wonderful samples and merchandising ideas (which I photographed but will not post because of copyright issues.  I am proud to respect other shop owners and their designs!)   Nancy and Diane were our wonderful hostesses - they work in their Baby Lock department.
They have machines, quilting fabrics, every thread imaginable, tons of embroidery patterns (watch out, friends, I am loving the machine embroidery capabilities!), and home decor fabrics.  Wonderful.

We are finishing up today and heading back home to move the shop.  Will need to keep the caffeine flowing - although I think the adrenaline from the new shop excitement will be fuel enough!  cheers!
