September VIP Club (Elsmere)

Announcing the Janome 6700!

Luke’s Elmsere location brought VIP Club back with a stunning trunk show and new machine! The night kicked off with dinner – chicken, salad and fresh fruit. As everyone ate, Margaret took the stage to highlight some of our upcoming events. We have so many exciting classes and events coming up – we just had to share them with you!
Then, Veronica demonstrated the new Janome 6700 – a powerhouse sit down quilter that will become a beloved tool in any sewer’s arsenal. It’s fast – able to reach speeds of 1200 stitches per minute and it’s all metal interior means it’s incredibly strong. If you missed out on the demonstration – stop in and check it out for yourself!
After she wowed the crowd with the 6700, Luke’s staffed presented a trunk show of our newest samples. Anita Gooddesign released so many great new designs in recent months – we just had to share them! We also brought out some old favorites to share!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Luke’s VIP Club without a big winner. Congratulations to Sharon N! She went home with a gift basket of stabilizers, thread, scissors, and lots of notions.

Block of the Month: Elsmere

Elsmere’s Block of the Month is wrapping up – has it been 12 months already? Almost! Next month (October) will be Elsmere’s final block of the month!
It’s been an exciting project – every month we’ve learned a new sewing accessory, presser foot, and specialty technique. We’ve played with our decorative stitches, and gotten creative combining new techniques with traditional quilting – and everyone’s quilts are coming along great! This month – we have a great boxed salad and sandwich from a local deli for lunch!
We’re so excited to see what everyone’s created – and how everyone’s quilts are coming together.

Soni Grint Software Bootcamp! (Elsmere)

Welcoming Soni Grint to Luke’s!

We are so thrilled that we got to host Soni Grint a second time this year! Her camp in January sold out so quick and was so popular we invited her back for a second time! Soni spent two days this week at our Kentucky VIP Club house teaching us all her software and digitizing secrets. She sure had a lot to share with us! She’s been a part of the embroidery industry for many years – both as an educator and developer – and has been described as one of the best embroidery educators out there! It was a real treat learning from her – and we’re excited to have her again. She makes digitizing accessible, fun and easy!
