Eversewn X / X2 Embroidery Resources

I am having such a great time with my Sparrow X Embroidery machine. I hope you are too. I have joined the facebook group, Eversewn Sparrow X Owners and Interest and find Marcia to be extremely responsive, knowledgable, and a great resource. I've seen where she has connected with people to work one-on-one to resolve their issues. She answers everyone's questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. It's a great resource and I highly recommend connecting there for an online resource.  If you're interested in embroidery workshops, we are in the planning stages for starting them soon. These will be in Fleming Island, Florida...

GiveAway Winner Announcements!

I have TWO winners to announce for our monthly GiveAways because I overlooked announcing January's, and February's just slipped through our fingers.

It's been awhile since I've introduced myself and shared a bit about what makes me tick - which of course drives what's happening at Cool Stitches.

I grew up in northwest Indiana and Stan grew up in central Georgia. We met in Washington state where we raised our two sons who are now adults with families of their own. They live here...

Large Format PDF Pattern Printing

Large Format PDF Pattern Printing

With the trend towards PDF delivery of patterns I've been researching options for printing them that doesn't include printing at home and tiling all those pages into a usable pattern. I don't like doing it this way, so we always include a printed pattern with our sewing subscription boxes for that reason. I only sell what I would use myself. In researching these options, I came across this list (updated and slightly edited for this post) from our friends at Cashmerette. It summarizes very well some attractive options for you to print your favorite PDF patterns - the same ones...
