This was not our first, but the first in a long time. I have to admit that I have not spent time embroidering with my 10001 Janome Embroidery Machine for over a year, maybe longer. The place?--
-A NIMBLE THIMBLE-- Tyler, Texas. This is a wonderful quilt shop. If you are ever in the area, it is a "MUST STOP AND SHOP" place. Let me start with a few pics of the shop (now that I have your attention in that area). You will see that Katie (shop owner) has created a place where you can learn and purchase supplies for just about all crafts. I have recently developed a love for wool (see "Tree Time" free BOM on my right side bar). Nimble Thimble has the most wonderful collection of wool that I have seen.
Now--if you visit A Nimble Thimble Quilt Shop, be sure to mention to Katie that "THE WACKYS sent you. We are hoping for a few extra points for it. Katie is a delightfully friendly person. I took a pic of her visiting in the shop but she made me promise not to post the pic as she did not feel she looked her best. But you will know her smile when you walk in the door.
