Exciting Times at The Cotton Shops

Hold on all you Disney and Thomas Kinkade Fans. Here it is THE DISNEY DREAMS COLLECTION Original art by Thomas Kinkade. This dang cute and inspiring line will hit the stores mid January. This line will feature Tinker Bell, Pinocchio, The Blue Fairies, Peter Pan and my favorite Snow White. I have seen the whole line and it is so inspiring, it takes you back to all those special moments as a child where dreaming was a everyday occurance. It brought peace, excitment, joy, and a journey to Neverland with Wendy and Peter Pan.
Come and recreate those memories or even create new ones for the Disney fans around you. I am so excited I lost sleep over what I was going to get to recreate my Snow White.

To see the whole collection you can go to

*Soft case cover, 4 bobbins, Needle package, Twin needle, and Spool caps (Lg,Md,and Sm)

If this isn’t enough you need to check out the warranty that is offered on the Baby Lock machines AMAZING!!!!!!

I have used the Grace and one thing I love about the Baby Lock machines are they are very easy to use anybody can sit down and be able to thread and run this machine. Some other features that I love, are it has three speeds, you can run it slow for the more intense projects that need more control or you can run it fast for the zip it in out projects. The other great thing is you can run it without the foot peddle. It’s like driving a car, it runs as smooth as butter and your project possibilities are endless with this machine.

Come on over and take our little Grace for a spin and see what I am talking about. You won’t be disappointed with this machine I bet my bobbins on it!!!!!!!
