Needle Points from Rhonda


Where did 2014 go? I still have UFO's! Time certainly is sneaky as it passes. As the holidays approach I want to say thank you for using SCHMETZ needles. It is my pleasure to meet you at different venues across this great land. I love hearing your stories and seeing your sewing and quilting projects. I know there's a lot of love and creativity that goes into each stitch and I am so appreciative that SCHMETZ is your needle of choice. Plus I love your ideas! It was through your suggestions that color coded SCHMETZ needles are now a reality. So, before this year ends, a big hug and a thank you for using the most recognized name in home sewing ... SCHMETZ needles. I'll see you in 2015!
