There's More!!</span></strong><br />Isn't there always?&nbsp; Ha ha!<br /><br />But, seriously, when you grab one of our ME patterns, it's truly a 3-in-1 set of instructions:<br /><br />1.&nbsp; Satin stitch instructions for your embroidery machine<br />2.&nbsp; Blanket stitch instructions for your embroidery machine<br />3.&nbsp; Traditional instructions for good, old-fashioned sewing machines and hand embroidery<br /><br />With the same kit, you could do each of these:<br /><br /><a href="https://www.patchabilities.com/shop/c/p/MM807-ME-Beach-Hut-Machine-Embroidery-x63868164.htm" target="_blank"><img width="300" height="568" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/441/300x568_4web_MM807_ME_Beach_Hutjpg.jpg" alt="" align="" /></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.patchabilities.com/shop/c/p/MM807-ME-Beach-Hut-Machine-Embroidery-x63868164.htm" target="_blank"><img width="285" height="561" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/441/285x561_MM807png.png" /></a><br /><br />OK, there's only two pics, but the second one is blanket stitch -- you can do this on your sewing machine or with your embroidery machine.&nbsp; Note that the embroidery machines can embroider the buttons, too!<br /><br />All three projects are included with every ME pattern.&nbsp; You'll get a printed set of instructions and you'll get the digital PDF instructions on our handy USB stick.<br /></span></p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 18pt;

We want you to shop local.&nbsp;</strong> <br /><br />See, we just can't offer the same level of service that your local shops can -- advice, troubleshooting, fabrics, temporary adhesive spray, batting, thread, and so on.&nbsp; We don't compare to your local shop in any of these areas -- you'll have a better experience when shopping with them.<br /><br /><img width="300" height="225" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/441/300x225_WiseMonkey_Shop01jpg.jpg" alt="" align="" />&nbsp;&nbsp;<img width="300" height="225" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/441/300x225_IMG_5141_smalljpg.jpg" alt="" align="" /><br /><br />We don't have downloadable ME files ... But, <strong><em>they</em> </strong>can certainly offer our ME files for download.&nbsp; <br /><br />We encourage our partner shops to carry all of our products in their digital form.&nbsp; So, please, ask your shops for these things -- <span style="color: #228e53;">the more you ask, the more responsive they'll be to you</span>.</span></p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong><span style="font-size: 18pt;

Feature Shop:&nbsp; Wise Monkey (IA)<br />3.&nbsp; Sneak Peek at some upcoming Machine Embroidery patterns</span><strong><span><br /></span></strong></span></p> <hr /> <p><span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #d0131a;"><strong>We'll Have You in Stitches!</strong></span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">We've been talking about our Machine Embroidery line of products for months now.&nbsp; We think it's pretty cool and we've received tons of great feedback from those of you who have used them.</span></p> <span style="font-size: 14pt;">But something&nbsp;dawned on us: we have&nbsp;<strong><em>got</em>&nbsp;</strong>to explain the stitching!!</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">See, one of the things we did with our patterns was to offer two stitching options.&nbsp; This is really cool and something not often found among Machine Embroidery patterns out there.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">1.&nbsp;&nbsp;<span style="color: #2446a2;"><strong>Satin Stitch</strong></span>.&nbsp; This is the typical stitching we're all used to seeing from embroidery machines.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">2.&nbsp;&nbsp;<span style="color: #228e53;"><strong>Blanket Stitch</strong></span>.&nbsp; This gives the effect of a hand-stitched product but has the convenience of using your awesome embroidery machine.&nbsp; We at Patch Abilities think this is the best of both worlds.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong>Here's a two-for-one:&nbsp;</strong><br />(1) This is a sneak peek at a new super project (wall hanger, table runner, pillow, etc.) that will be coming out in early June and<br />(2) it shows a side-by-side of blanket stitch (left) and satin stitch (right):</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><img width="700" height="349" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/441/700x349_Blanket_vs_Satinjpg.jpg" class="img-responsive" /></span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">The&nbsp;above are the same exact pattern performed by the same exact embroidery machine.&nbsp; The only difference is the type of stitching that was used.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Which is best?&nbsp;<br />Obviously, the best one is the one that you like best.&nbsp; And, that's precisely why we added these options -- because we're all different and we like to have options.</span><br /><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Ever heard of a Ted Talk?&nbsp;
