Wow, I am sitting in my deluxe studio (the back of my garage) with embroidery machines running in stereo. A Pfaff 2170 to the left and the Creative Vision to my right, she is testing my extra large, punk rock style embroidery designs. The 2170 for the medium and small Tribal pieces. The collection must be finished before tonight and I am so close I can almost taste it! "Born to Sew" Embroidery Collection should launch at Pfaff Convention the first week of August. I will also be doing a custom and limited edition clothing line that will be for sale at The Cotton Ball, select boutiques and on my website, www.robappell.com

Check out Behind the Seams at www.nowsewing.net to see some great sewing tips. I have been part of the BTS Team for the past several tapings and have just returned from yet another session. Big Things in our future with PFAFF. Did I say Q-Bot the automated computer for your Grand Quilter and Frame - super cool! I have other secrets but I can not tell you until after Pfaff Convention. Even if you bribe me with chocolate chip cookies.
So I hear this blogging is pretty cool, a great way to get your ideas "out there" and very addictive. Great just what I need... another reason to stay up late at night. So why now, well I got to know are you out there. I would love to use this site to help communicate ideas and pass creativity from my Family's store The Cotton Ball and myself. All I need is one person to type the words... go one give us some more.
