I hope this e-mail finds you well, and that your summer was enjoyable. 


It's been a busy time here at The Fabric Garden!  We're excited to launch the brand new Memory Craft 12000 on October 1st.  It is a truly incredible machine.  I recently traveled to Orlando, Florida to attend Janome training on that machine and other software and techniques, along with 1,200 Janome Dealers from around the world.  It's a fantastic opportunity to learn, so that I may share the knowledge with you.


Lots of Happenings:    

A Launch Party for the new Horizon Memory Craft  12000 is planned - be sure to reserve your spot.


We're had several requests for a beginner quilting class, so that is scheduled (see e-mail or website for details)


We're gearing up for the "Harvest of Squares" Fall Shop Hop next week.  

Save the date for our Fall Open House, coming October 22..


There are lots of new items and fabrics in-store.   Is it just me, or does the fabric get even more gorgeous every year?   New kits, new fabrics, new buttons, new inspiration.   I hope it keeps inspiring you as well.  


Happy Fall, and all the best your way.
