  1. Have a safe trip back to CA. Hi to Nick. I’ll see you Sunday. Looking forward to class. Tried to get in to 2 day class at Road but you were booked. Will try to get on a waiting list. I’ll be visiting our daughter while I am there.

  2. Lisa, you need a break from the cold, even if it is a working break. Good luck on the set-up of your new store. I hope to visit it some day. And, congratulations, Janet Glover! Lucky girl! You are going to love, love, love, your new Juki. Happy New Year to all. Nancy

  3. Congrats to Janet Glover– lucky and happy girl! Post lots of pictures of the set up and of both stores. I need a little beauty and inspiration in the bleak winter in Nebraska..but on the up side –cold does make for good sewing time!

  4. Wow! Look at those HST’s, you go girl, lol. The name is perfect for the design and colors, it does have a frosty feel, and it’s lovely! Have to admit, not what I was expecting, but I didn’t stray far from the path, and love surprises too. I’m looking forward to seeing you next week at Surfside Quilters Guild, taking your class, and spending time with friends. It should be a nice 72 degrees by Tues & Wed. Hugs, Jakey

  5. I’m so excited to get my new Juki sewing machine! Can you recommend a sewing table for this machine? Currently have my Pfaff in a Koala cabinet with acrylic insert but might like to have this machine on it’s own simple table – maybe with an acrylic insert. Just don’t need a fancy cabinet for this one. Thanks Lisa!!

  6. Woud be be able to post your new store pictures here also? I know some of us don’t do facebook and I think Instragram is an app only for smart phones and not for tablets? Thanks Lisa and keep warm! Baby it’s cold outside! 🙂

  7. Congratulations Janet, it’s good to see a Georgia girl win!!! I’ve had my Juki TL98E for over 10 years and its the best piecing machine out there.

  8. Thank you so much for my prize, the trolley needle. That was so kind of you!!! Robbi Buckles

    1. How exciting for Janet to win! I can only imagine the happy dancing that went on at her house. =) Love your feelin’ frosty peek!

  9. I wish I could move out to sunny CA and go to work for you in your new shop! What an adventure. My hat is off to you Lisa, Nick and family. Best of luck in your new venture. Congrats to the lucky lady in Georgia! I won the bobbin holder, thank you, and was thrilled so can imagine she about fainted when winning the Juki!!
