I have been talking about hosting a Machine Embroider-A-Long (MEAL) for Scissortail Stitches Merry And Bright tiling scene since October and I know a lot of you were really excited about it. I had no idea if my Aurifil thread would make from Italy in time so I wasn't very loud about it, I figured if my thread didn't show up then we could do a Christmas in July kinda thing? But hey! It's here! And lord knows I would never do this before the last minute anyway.

At this juncture I'm not sure there will be too much involved in this MEAL but you can jump into the Facebook Group and let me know if you want a very structured MEAL or something less formal. Maybe we can do a less formal thing next year and have it on the books to be a more structed, yearly thing?

While I kick around ideas on how this beauty will work as a MEAL, I want you to have time your supplies together! Here are the list of supplies you need which will include thread, needles and more.
