I’m sorry I have not updated the classes and other information recently. Things have been crazy busy with new products, machines, getting caught up from our trip to St. Louis for Baby Lock Tech 2013, and preparing for the 2013 Eastern New Mexico State Fair. I am working to get a new class schedule together along with a full newsletter. I hope to have them posted in the week after the fair. Thank you for your patience.
