Happy New Year!

2016 is now upon us and we would like to wish all of our Colouricious Club members and happy, creative and peaceful year. We have lots of new ideas for the forthcoming months and are looking forward to sharing them all with you. We will continue to send you lots of new ideas for crafting projects in our weekly newsletters, as well as several brand new plans we have that we will tell you about in due course.

We would also like to ask you to help us in 2016. One of the keys to our success is getting the Colouricious name spread out as far as possible among the crafting world. We would ask you think of a couple of your friends who are interested in crafting and spread the Colouricious word by forwarding this email to them. If they were to join our club, this would help us to grow and then enable us to offer you even more great deals and ideas.

Machine Embroidery involves using a sewing machine or embroidery machine to create patterns on your crafting projects. The patterns can be as intricate as you wish and will bring depth and texture to the craft project you are working on.
We have a super page full of interesting facts, pictures and videos on how you can use machine embroidery on your next craft project. You can take a look at it here.
