Ladies, you need to know that owners of other embroidery machine brands are welcome.  We have wonderful testimonials from individuals who travel quite a distance and find our embroidery club to be very helpful.  We do not use embroidery club as a high pressure sales tool.  Just bring a smile and a show and tell project.
