Akaine, A 12 YEAR OLD WHO PAINTS GOD FROM HER HEART
February 7, 2010
Dear Friends and Customers,
We want to thank the Lord for one of the best events ever. We are so grateful for everyone who attended. We hope you had a wonderful time.
Walter Floriani and Kathy Quinn did an excellent job. I heard so many people comment how much they learned about embroidery.
The first time I heard Walter Floriani, he taught me a lot. When we first started embroidery there was no one who really knew a lot about it. When Walter got through teaching it was like the light bulbs turned on BIG TIME. Walter even digitized designs for customers they were having trouble with. Everyone who he digitized their designs for HAD to buy the Floriani Software!
Walter did such a good job explaining it. I said "Can we keep you forever?" He said "Click here". They have all these wonderful classes built into the software on How To Use It. Kathy Quinn really related to all us ladies. She did a good job teaching software too. She made it so easy to understand.
Both Kathy and Walter did a terrific job explaining stabilizers and how to use them. Kay Brooks from Floriani products worked with a chemist to develop the different stabilizers that we use. The water soluble stabilizer has silicon in it so the needle goes up and down and doesn't tear up the stabilizer and gives you a wonderful stitch out.
Kathy also told how she loves her 6 needle machine. She uses it all the time when she's home.
Susan Zellers did such a good job explaining the new BabyLock Ellisimo. A lady came up from the audience before she was done and bought one. We sold every Ellisimo we took to the show and had to order more. We sold every new 8 thread Evolution serger we took to the show and had to order more!
We broke records on sales for Walter Floriani's software. It is so easy to use. It gives you the best of both - the industrial and home side of embroidery.
We sold several Embroidery Professionals. I love our 6 needle machine with the big screen and the lights that stay on all the time. We have a lot of people trade their old 6 needle machines in on the new one. They all love the new features. The stitch quality on the Embroidery Professional cannot be topped. IT IS EXCELLENT!
Why not come by Ruthies Notions in Baker, Florida and try one out today. You will LOVE it!
Don't miss an event at Ruthies. You will love them. We have a wonderful schedule of classes planned for you.
Love Always and Forever,
P.S. If you missed buying the Floriani software at the event, you can still buy it for the
special price of $1599 and get your FREE 100 spools of Floriani thread worth $599.
We also have the best specials ever on Elissimo's and Evolution Sergers and BMP 9's.

Dear Friends and Customers,
Has the economy of the nation got you down? Why not look at ways to make yourself some money. We have the Baby Lock Embroidery Professional 6-needle embroidery machine you can really make money at home or add income to your existing business.
|One of our customers made
makeup bags out of a dollar
hand towel and sold over
3000 of them for $12 a
piece. They only took about
15 minutes to do the
embroidery and sew them up.
Another customer is doing
patches for services men.
Another customer is going to
market buying purses,
luggage and other products
you can embroider and sell.
For example, she is buying a
bag for $3.00 and selling
embroidered for $18.00.
Pray diligently and ask God
for his wisdom and
understanding to help you
help you and your family
grow a wonderful business.
Always don’t forget to be
grateful to God for all He
does for you and yours
everyday. He is an awesome
God. The Bible says, He
inhabits the praises of His
people. How special is it
when someone takes the time
to thank you or writes a
note of thanks. Try being
more thankful to God
everyday, even when the
bottom falls out. You will
be amazed each day as you
realize His blessing even in
the midst of suffering and
pain. One day, the Bible
says, our suffering will be
counter balanced with an
exceeding weight of glory
and if we are not willing to
drink His cup we are none of
His. God said his grace is
sufficient his strength is
made perfect in weakness.
Aren’t you glad we have a
God who loves us so much He
gave His only son who
willingly laid down His life
for us and paid for our sins
so we could live in heaven
with God and His son Jesus
The way things are coming to
pass in the world today I
don’t believe it will be
much longer until he takes
us home. Even if it’s
another 1000 years I want to
be ready when it is my time
to go. I pray everyday and
spend time with the Lord in
prayer. He is my most
precious friend. Why not ask
Him into your heart today.
You will be sooo thankful
Love Always & Forever
Dear Friends and
I will be 58 this birthday, April
4th. So many of our customers are
retiring we have a lot of young
customers too! So many people when
they think nobody wants to hire you
because of your age don’t let it get
you down. There are so many ways you
can make money with embroidery and
sewing. I have lots of customers who
work full time jobs, even 2 jobs and
still do embroidery. With children
in school and especially college you
need all the extra income to help
out. The Bible says, “idle hands are
the devil’s workshop.” I love to be
busy and pray I can keep going and
working till the Lord takes me home.
Moses was able to go till he was 120
years old. He still had good eye
We need to teach our children and our
wonderful grandchildren how to embroider
and sew. My little granddaughter Sarah
loves to make baby blankets on the
serger. This summer we want to offer
some classes on basic sewing for
children. Watch our calendar for these
classes. Also I am planning some basic
sewing and embroidery classes for people
of all ages.
Maybe all your life you wanted to do
your own little business. Come by
Ruthie’s Notions (Ruthie Wood) and get
started today. We are here to help you.
When I was a little girl walking to
Sunnyside grade school I said in my
heart I wanted to sew and make clothes.
God heard my prayer. I have designed
clothes for expensive boutiques across
the United States and did over $40,000
worth of orders for a big retail store
We have helped and encouraged so many
people to start successful businesses or
added to the business they already have.
This last month, Feb 2009, was our 22nd
year in business. I love our Baby Lock
machines. Our Ultimate Exclusive package
offers you the best machines possible to
start a wonderful business or just enjoy
sewing and embroidery and make wonderful
gifts for your family and friends.
One of my customers is making a
beautiful wall hanging with special
Bible verses for a nursing home she
ministers at. There are so many
possibilities, just ask God today to
help use your talents for him. I want to
be like the person he gave ten talents
to and make more talents than you can
I don’t want to be like the one who
buried his talent and was cast out into
outer darkness. Use what you have in
your hand. I started sewing on a pawn
shop machine. My first set of good
machines I paid about $38 every 2 weeks
till I got them paid for and could have
paid them off in a year. That’s why we
try to help our customers. We offer all
these wonderful classes. We train you
how to use your machines. We give you
lots of extras to help get you started.
We offer excellent financing to
qualified buyers. My neighbor, Mrs.
Moore, Mrs. Helm and the preacher’s wife
taught me how to sew when David was a
baby. I made most of his clothes so I
could be a stay at home mom. He didn’t
know he didn’t have name brand clothes.
I would not take anything for the time
we shared together growing up. Now
David, my only child helps me with this
business. I am very grateful for all his
help. I am so blessed to be able to work
with my family. You can too! Why not
Love Always and Forever
PS. I can make a shirt in 10 minutes on
the serger. Come by Ruthie Wood and I’ll
show you how. Remember we all need God’s
forgiveness. The only one who never
sinned was Jesus. The Bible says, all
have sinned and come short of the Glory
of God. I am so grateful that God gave
His only begotten son that who so ever
believeth in Him should not perish but
have everlasting life. Please read John
3:16 today and invite the Lord Jesus
into your heart today. You will be
thankful you did. Love Ruthie
Dear Friends & Customers
I want to personally thank each and every one of you. I deeply appreciate and am so grateful for everyone who attended our Jesus Birthday Celebration. Over 80 people showed up. It was so precious to see each of you who came. It was the best one every. Thank you for my Christmas presents. That was so sweet of you to get me a Chico's gift card. I love their clothes. They are creative & artsy. They really inspire you with their choices of color, fabrics, design and how beautifully they are sewn.
Sewing is like art to me. I won a scholarship in 11th grade for my art work. This is why I absolutely Love our Baby Lock machines. We are blessed to have such wonderful machines. We have the most wonderful sergers in the world. They thread themselves and have automatic tensions. Our brand new Ellisimo is one of the best embroidery and sewing machines I have ever seen. We have already sold a ton of them. The stitch quality in the embroidery designs will make your heart sing. It has a built in camera that sews perfect 1/4" seams, perfect straight stitches and it even sews curves by itself! Can you believe it? Come by Ruthie's and fall in love with the new Ellisimo. You'll love the little precision placement Snowman. The camera finds the little snowman & puts your design right there. It is so much fun. The Lord has really blessed us with such a wonderful new machine that has 100 new features you will love. They didn't spare a dime or cut corners in anyway on the Ellisimo. I am so very thankful and grateful to God for such a wonderful machine. The Embroidery Professional, our 6 needle machine, is a perfect machine to help start a business of your own.

Dear Friends and Customers,
Cody is one of the most precious gifts
from God he ever gave us as grandparents. He has given us so much joy
and happiness. His hard work and dedication is beyond anything I've ever
seen in my life. Cody and his Dad, David Barnhill, put their whole
hearts into preparing for the motorcycle races at Loretta Lynn National
Races in Hurricane Mills Tennessee this past week.
I've never seen anyone not let the
circumstances get them down like Cody and David did. During one race his
motorcycle would hardly go because they had gotten some bad fuel that
messed up the bike. He finished last, but he hung in there and did the
best he could. In another race he was last out of 42 riders but moved up
to position 15. He finished 23rd and 21st in two other races. During the
very last race my precious Cody wrecked out of the starting gate. His
face shield got messed up and his handlebars were bent crooked. His Dad
straightened the handlebars the best he could and Cody stayed in the
race for all 8 laps. His knee hurt him some and his face had sand and
dirt on it from the fall but he hung in there and didn't quite,
finishing the race.
I have never seen such hard hard work and
dedication from anyone. For being only 11 years old it took tremendous
courage and hard work to endure the long grueling hours of practice for
the races. Cody did an excellent job along with his Dad. They love each
other very much and their passion for dirt bike racing has bonded their
hearts thru God's abundant blessing and mercy. God protected him, kept
him safe and gave him and his Dad great courage to accomplish this
No words can ever express my gratitude to
God for an awesome week with my family at Loretta Lynn National Races in
Hurricane Mills Tennessee.
Cody's Mom and Nana went. Sarah had a
ball. I think she ate 50 frozen pops. She and Paw Paw, Willie D, caught
a bunch of minnows and little baby crawdads in a creek by the camper. We
are so blessed and thankful to God. We just bless him and thank him for
all his goodness and mercy to me and my family this week.
Thank you all, our friends and customers
for your many prayers for Cody and our family. We appreciate you all
very much. It is priceless beyond words, God's gifts to us this week.
Thank you all again.
Love Always and Forever,
Ruthie & Family
The Return of Christ & The Feast of Trumpets
(Provided by a special friend of Ruthie)
Is the Lord Jesus soon to
return? Jesus told His disciples that at the “end of the age”
certain signs would occur simultaneously with increasing intensity and
frequency in the manner that a pregnant woman has more frequent and
strong contractions as her labor approaches. These signs would

Infectious agents causing death and disease
and “rumors of war”

weather patterns (hurricanes, etc.) -- “the seas roaring”
“perplexity” and anxiety in the people worldwide
The Lord concluded by adding,
“When you shall see all these
that it is near, even at the doors.”-- Matthew
In addition, Jesus predicted another important “marker” for the
end-times: The return of
into Israeli hands.
In fact, Jesus states the “generation” which is alive at that time
will see His return to earth.
became part of
in 1967 after the Six-Day War. A biblical generation is approximately 50
- 51 years, according to scholars. Therefore this prophesied
“end-times” generation would go up to year 2018 at the latest for
Christ to return to begin His reign for “a thousand years.”
Close inspection of the Old and New Testaments reveal that there will be
a horrendous, seven-year period of worldwide judgment preceding the
return of Christ -- known as the Tribulation period, the final 3 1/2
years called the “Great Tribulation.” During this time period,
one-half the earth’s population will be killed
(through war, famine, pestilences, nuclear exchange, perhaps an asteroid
strike, etc.). That means around 3 billion will die.
BUT -- true believers in
the Lord Jesus will be spared going through this Tribulation by being
suddenly snatched away, in the “twinkling of an eye.” This sudden
disappearance of believers is called the Rapture. This dramatic
event will be signaled by the blast of a trumpet from Heaven. The
biblical texts are found in 1 Thessalonians 14:15 and 1 Corinthians
15:52. People who have already died as believers will emerge from the
graves and be reunited with their bodies. Those of us who are still
alive will be “caught up” alongside them to meet the Lord Jesus in
the clouds and then be transported with Him to Heaven. We will miss the
Tribulation and its horror and mass destruction of the planet. We will
miss the fierce one-world ruler or modem-day “fuehrer” known as the
Anti-Christ, who is undoubtedly alive and waiting in the political wings
to assume power. He will arise most likely from the “revised”
(as predicted in the Book of Daniel) or the European Union.
When will the rapture take place? Jesus said that “no man would know
the day or hour” of His return. But He did instruct us to learn of the
appropriate “signs” of the times and be always ready and watching
for His return. He provided many biblical “clues.” One of those
clues include the seven Israeli “Feast Days.” These feasts or
“Feasts of the Lord” seem to be God’s timepiece or divine calendar
in which he does spectacular things.
Jesus already fulfilled four of the seven Jewish Feast Days given to
Moses in the desert. He celebrated the Passover meal on Thursday
evening, since their “day” begins at sundown. His body was broken
and crucified on the Passover morning/afternoon as the “Lamb of God
who took away the sins of the world.” He fulfilled the Feast of
Unleavened Bread the next day, as Jesus called Himself the “Bread of
Life.” Jesus rose from the dead on the Feast of First Fruits or the
springtime offering of “new life to God. We call it Easter.
The Holy Spirit swept down on the disciples and followers in the upper
room on Pentecost day. This infilling made them bold witnesses for God.
There are three feasts yet to be fulfilled:
Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah)
Atonement (Yom Kippur)
of Tabernacles (Sukkot)
Since Jesus literally fulfilled each of the Israeli feasts to the very
day during His first appearance, it seems logical that He will also
fulfill His “second coming” on these forthcoming festival days.
These feasts are autumn feasts, usually in September-October of our
calendar. Historically they took place at the end of the harvest. With
this reasoning, the Feast of Trumpets is most associated with the
This year it is scheduled from sundown 29 September - 30 September 2008.
This feast is always heralded by the sounding of trumpets. In ancient
days, the priest would stand of the
parapet and several blasts of the “shofar” or ram’s horn would
During the day both Israeli and Arabs would be working in the fields.
When the trumpet sounded, the Israelite would immediately drop his
harvesting tools and head to the
for the Feast. The Arab, of course, would remain in the field, not
concerned with this religious festival.
Thus the words of Jesus come to life: “Two will be in the fields;
one will be taken, the other left behind.”
The Feast of
Trumpets is the only feast that occurs during the new moon. The others
are set by month and day.
Since one could not know precisely when the first sliver of “new”
moon would occur but knew the general time period in which it would
occur, the workers in the field and town had to be always be on-guard
for the sound of the trumpet. Two reliable witnesses had to be on the
lookout for the new moon and then signal the
priest to sound the rain’s horn. But one could not really know the
hour or the day when the Feast would begin. The new day began at sundown
but the celebration could begin only with the blowing of the trumpet. It
could happen day, noon, or night.
Thus the Feast of Trumpets was known to the people at that time as the
“feast when one could never know the day or the hour” feast. So when
Jesus told his disciples that they would not know the day or the hour of
His return, He was really telling them when he would return! At
the Feast of the Trumpets! His phrase was a type of “inside
Since the Rapture is a simultaneous worldwide event, people around the
world will be in different time zones and different -- though concurrent
-- time periods. The Rapture on Rosh Hashanah in
at 10 p.m. of 29 September 2008 would actually be 8 hours earlier (or 2
p.m.) but would be a different hour or even day in
One can only know the approximate two-day period -- but not know
precisely the “day” or the “hour” that the Lord whisks believers
away. Paul wrote in the “twinkling of the eye” passage (1 Car. 15:52) that the Rapture would be “at the last trump.” According to
Theodore Gaster’s book, “Festivals of the Year” of Judaism, there
are three named trumpets:
The “first trump” is blown on Feast of Pentecost (Exodus 19:19). The
“last trump” is connected with Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets).
The “great trump” is sounded on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). Jesus
is expected to fulfill this Feast Day at the end of the Tribulation
period when He physically returns to earth.
Thus Paul seems to have been speaking of the Rosh Hashanah when he wrote
of the Rapture:
shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of
eye, at the last trump, and
the trumpet shall sound ... we
Lunar and Solar Eclipses
Throughout Scripture the end-times and the “Day of the Lord” are
also associated with signs in the heavens, moon, and sun. In Old
Testament prophets such as Joel and Isaiah, the Lord’s return to earth
is marked by “the sun turning dark and the moon will give no
light.” Another passage refers to the moon become “blood red.”
A lunar eclipse is also known as a “blood moon.” The light rays of
the sari glance though the moon’s shadow, leaving refractive changes
as a crimson or purple-red crescent-shaped sliver of light as seen to
the earth observer.
earth shall quake before them; the heavens
tremble: the sun and moon shall be dark... the
the lord is great and very terrible...”
sun shall be turned into darkness, and the
blood, before the great and terrible
day of the Lord
Many modem prophecy scholars have interpreted these events to be related
to a “nuclear winter” from atomic warfare or perhaps from the
atmospheric ash formed by erupting volcanoes or an asteroid strike. But
a simpler explanation can be the common occurrence of eclipses of the
sun and moon. However, eclipses occurring on the Jewish holy days or
Feast Days is uncommon. Since God uses His feasts as prophetic days, it
is possible that He also signals world events with them. Four lunar
eclipses and two solar eclipses will occur in the Jewish year of
2014/2015. They all will take place on Jewish holy days. The four lunar
eclipses (called a “tend”) will occur on the Passover in April of
2014 and April 2015, as well as on the Feast of Tabernacles in
October 2014 and September 2015.
This tetrad of lunar eclipses on Feast days will not occur again this
century, or, in fact, for several more centuries. The last time a tetrad
of lunar eclipses took place was in 1967/68 -- the year that
-- an obviously crucial day in prophecy. Another 4-lunar eclipse period
occurred in years 1949/50 -- the year after
became a nation again. It seems that God has been using these multiple
lunar eclipses as “signals” or “signs” for “big” events that
What is God telling His people that will happen in the years 2014/15?
There are two solar eclipses, the first on Nisan 1, 2015, which is the
beginning of the religious festival cycle. The second is on 13 September
2015, on Rosh Hashanah, or Feast of Trumpets.
During the Jewish year of 2014/15, the sun will become “darkened”
twice and the moon will “not give its light” four times. If
the Lord, physically returns on Yom Kippur (as prophesied in Zechariah,
etc.) in the fall of 2015, His appearance is at the conclusion of
the seven- year Tribulation period. Therefore the Rapture of believers
must take place seven years prior to His revelation to the nations.
Seven years subtracted from fall 2015 yields a fall of 2008 as a
possible “season” of the Lord’s catching believers away. Thus this
year’s Rosh Hashanah of Feast of Trumpets could be the long- awaited
It is 29-30 September 2008....
We do not know the “day or hour,” but remember that the Feast of
Trumpets is the nicknamed the “not know the day or hour feast.” It
is celebrated over a two-day period. Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew
after the tribulation of those days the sun
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light...”
The Lord also stated in Luke 21:25,
there shall be signs in the sun, and the moon,
stars; and upon the earth distress of nations,
perplexity; the seas and the waves roaring...”
It’s best we prepare for the Lord’s return
-- whether this year or in a hundred years!
Dear Friends and Customers
We are so thankful for all Gods blessings. He has been so
good to each and everyone of us if we first stop and realize what He
means to us in our heart of hearts. He said he would be a friend that
sticks closer than a brother. When our mother or father forsake us He
would adopt us as His own. Take time to love your family. I know myself

your children. Try doing something special for someone else. I love
embroidery and sewing. You can make gifts that touch someone's heart.
There are so many ways we can be a blessing to our family and friends if
we just take the time and try. Don't forget the most important one to
bless is God.
Psalm 103 says to, "Bless the Lord oh my soul and all

"This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice
and be glad in it." Every morning when I wake up I quote this
scripture. Mr. Hinder from Baby Lock (Tacony Corp.) told me he also
quotes it everyday. Even when the storm was coming I said it. It gives
Each day is a very special day from God. There are so many
reasons to be thankful if you just sop and think about it. The other day
I was riding over the bridge to Destin, I saw the most beautiful sunset
over the water. The sun light was so beautiful on the water, it was like
a beacon of God's love coming down from Heaven. The more you slow down
and just be thankful, the more you will find yourself feeling so much
better and encouraged in your heart of hearts. God is so gracious to
give us the breath we breathe. Recently my precious friend Pearl Green
went home to glory. She couldn't see very well so she had to be so
thrilled to be able to see all the beauty in Heaven. I look forward to
the day we will get to actually see the Lord and behold Him in His

We appreciate you so much and we are thankful for each of
you. We pray you are blessed with God's most precious blessing forever,
even beyond words.

Special Thoughts from My Heart.
Our hearts are so heavy for the suffering all around us. As each day
comes and goes please remember these people in your prayers. If we each
try to do what God lays on our heart to help, it will be a blessing. You
may think "what I do is so little," but what you do does matter!
It is such a wonderful feeling to see the whole world pulling together to
The United States has helped so many countries in their time of need.
So many of our men and women have given their lives to help them. We are
such a blessed nation. Let us not forget to be so thankful to God for his
love. It is his love in our hearts that will help us through the days
ahead. It's easy to praise the Lord when you win the lottery. How much
more important is it to be thankful for all the blessings He has given us
everyday that money cannot buy.
To be able to see all the beautiful things He has created for us. Our Children
are such an incredible blessing from God. The Lord said, "unless we
are like little children we will no wise enter the Kingdom of God."
We can learn so much from the children. My grandchildren have taught we so
much about the Lord and His love for us. They don't hold grudges, they
love you unconditionally (even though sometimes we're not so nice). God's
agape love, loves us at our best or worse, His love doesn't change. We
break His heart by some of our choices, but He longs for us to love Him unconditionally
Our hearts prayer for all of you is that when it's our time to go home,
our lives will please Him and bring joy to His heart, and we'll all hear
Him say, "enter into the blessedness of the Lord forever!" Live
each moment like it's your last. It may be! Only God knows when the end
will be, not even Jesus knows this. With all our heart felt love for each
of you, may you be blessed forever with God's most precious blessing that
no amount of money in heaven or earth can ever touch.
With Love Always,

changed so many lives and given people an opportunity to start a business
at home or in a shop. If you don't want to start a business right away,
you can make beautiful gifts for people you love. A lot of our customers
love sewing for their children and grandbabies. Many of our customers love
designing drapes, pillows, quilts and other home decorating items. The
possibilities are endless!
One of my favorite and
most precious reasons I love these sewing machines is they let you be so
creative. You can design portraits and thread painting with our software.
I love making one of a kind originals. There is so much joy when you
create something that makes others happy. Some of my most precious items
are pictures and things my son and grandchildren made for me. They mean
more than a famous painting would. Remember there's only one of you.
Nobody has your special gift - use what God has given you for his
One of my customers said she loves making
inspirational gifts for people. There are so many people we can help with
our sewing. My Mama had Alzheimer's but she loved watching the machines
We make lots of blankets for children in ICU at
Scared Heart hospital in Pensacola and other places around our community
including Ronald McDonald House. One mother gave her blanket to another
mother to wrap her baby in that went to heaven.
Do the best
you can to help others, you will be so glad you did. Remember it is more
blessed to give than to receive. I always say I like to cast my bread on
the water all the time, then it will start coming back on every wave. Its
like a garden. You prepare the ground, you plant seeds, take care of it
and pray it does good. You will be rewarded for your effort. You don't
just throw a tomato seed on the ground and pick tomatoes the next day. Our
labor is not in vain in the Lord, in due season you will reap if you faint
not. Study God's words, you will love it. It has helped me and blessed me
to know more about God and his immeasurable love, you cannot even begin to
Love always and forever
P.S. I started Ruthie's Notions in the
bedroom of my home, my sewing room. We are now the 2nd largest Baby Lock
dealer in the USA. My friend use to tell me small beginning, large
ending. I said, sure look at us now. Work hard, God blesses hard work. Don't forget to pray everyday, praise
and thank God for his blessings on you and yours because you love Him.
Friends and Customers,
Come to Ruthie's Notions in Baker,
Florida for some of the most wonderful classes on software, sewing, and
embroidery. We are continually trying new classes. We are bringing in new
teachers and you will love the teachers we already have. They all have
so many talents in the sewing field. We are so blessed to have the
capabilities to create beautiful garments or start a business or just
love to sew for our families, make treasured gifts for our grand
children and friends.
The more you come to Ruthie's the
more you will love it. You will make so many new friends. We have lots
of husbands and wives who have started businesses and are doing great
with them or just having fun with their new machines. They love to come
to classes and learn how to help their business grow, get ideas for new
items they can make, how to market what they sell, or learn new places
to order wholesale.
Some of the classes focus on
how to get the most out of your machines and software other are hands-on
classes where you actually finish a project and take it home with you.
We had a class on making little girl dresses out of pillow cases and
over 20 ladies came to class. They loved it so we're going to do a few
more of these classes.
Most of our classes are FREE and
you get the project kit you need to create the item you are learning to
design. This is our way of helping you get the most of your priceless
investment. Once you start using them and exploring new possibilities
you never thought you could do, you'll learn how to improve your sewing
skills, learn new techniques that will help you and so, so much more.
There's only a few classes we charge for. So far they have been worth
the money for the knowledge they provide. For the hands-on classes you
only need to bring your machine, accessories, and sewing kit (scissors,
thread, needles, etc.).
At Ruthie's Notions we offer some
of the best package deals on machines and software. It is worth the
drive to come to Baker, FL and see us. We have people who come from
everywhere to buy their machines from us. We schedule one-on-one classes
to ensure you get the most from your machine and software. You will love

Lord has been so good to all of us. One of my customers this week said
she blessed the Lord all day long. One of my favorite and most important
scriptures is "Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In
everything GIVE THANKS for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning
you." I Thessalonians 5, 16:17: 18.
We can be so
busy with our lives we forget who gave them to us. We can do good works
continually, but if it's not done with the love of God in our hearts we
might as well not do anything. It is so easy to be thankful when
everything is going good. But when you don't know how you are going to
pay your bills or a family member is in a crisis start praising God. He
loves it when we remember to praise and thank Him continually. The more
you praise the Lord your heart will feel lighter and your problems won't
seem so over whelming. Don't you love for some one to thank you when you
help them? God gives us the breath we breathe.
have different suffering to walk through in life. If we let God He will
comfort us beyond any words anyone could speak to you. He dwells in our
hearts. Open the door to your heart and invite him in. You will be so
glad you did. If you are not willing to suffer for the sake of
Jesus Christ the bible says, we're none on His.
have our own cross to bear, but He will help us. He said to cast our
burdens on Him and He will sustain us. He will never let you down. Trust
Him. He watches over His Word to perform it. Heaven and earth will pass
away, but God's word will stand FOREVER!
Always & Forever,
Be ready, watching and praying
always to be counted worthy to escape what's coming on the earth. Be
alert, the Lord is coming soon! I want to be like one of five virgins in
the bible who had plenty of oil in her lamp when the call was given at
midnight. They were ready to go. During the hurricane I ran out of
batteries. I had to go everywhere trying to find some. Would you believe
everybody was sold out? Don't be left here! Be ready, saturated in the
oil of the Holy Spirit so when the Lord descends with a shout the voice
of the Arch Angel and the Trumpet call of God we are out of here on our
way to His arms. Praise God forever. We are saved because Jesus Christ,
our Lord and Savior gave his life for us if we only believe in Him.
(Read John 3:16)
Dear Customers and Precious Friends,
We want to thank each and everyone of you for all the
wonderful things you do for us. We appreciate you, your business and
friendship more than any words could ever express. The Lord has been so
good to each and everyone of us. Even though we are going through some of
the most difficult times in our lives, we can find so many blessings from
God to be thankful for. To be able to see beautiful sunsets and our precious
grandchildren's faces. I know if you are like us, they are some of the
greatest joys of your life. I know Cody and Sarah are to us. I am so thankful
to have David, our son, helping to do servicing now and training on the Embroidery
Professional machine. He is excellent with the EMP. Come by and he will be
glad to show you how easy it is to use and how to make lots of money with
one or just have fun embroidering on it. All our new machines are so user
friendly. It won't take you long to fall in love with them and want
to embroider everything that doesn't move.
We have worked hard to plan you a schedule of classes
for 2006, so you can plan your vacations and come to Ruthie's Notions in

share the joy of sewing. The last 2 classes were absolutely wonderful!
Hope you and yours have had a wonder Holiday Season and

Love Always & Forever,
P.S. Remember to read Psalm 91 everyday. It will be such
a blessing to you. It has helped me through so many days when I really
needed help and comfort. Remember, "This is the day the Lord has
made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118, Verse 24.
Each day is a new gift from God. Use it for His glory
