Ellisimo Retreat

June 1st, 2012.  What a wonderful day we had! 

15 ladies, 15 Ellisimos, 15 completed bags (well, almost completed). Hours of learning, sewing, laughter, sewing, eating, sewing, comradery, sewing. What better way to spend a day!

It was a great class to learn some of the many things the Babylock Ellisimo sewing machine can do to help us be creative.  Hard to believe a sewing machine can help us so much.

Next Ellisimo Retreat is August 3rd. Keep an eye on our blog for further details.
