So excited about this workshop!

This is a unique collaboration between Kim Suleman of The Fat Quarters, Melanie Haigh – Regional Support Specialist for Brother sewing machines and me!

In this workshop we will be exploring the unique connection between the Scan N Cut machines, fabric and the Brother range of embroidery machines!

Fabric Friday hasn’t been around for a while but I’m pleased to say that I’ve literally been doing nothing else but see for two days … progress at last!!
