Cajun Corner – Vol. 1, No. 10 – JuLY 31, 2009

Bon Jour! Welcome to Cajun Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.

I met the nicest man today. He owns a local screen printing/embroidery shop. We had lunch and he really helped me out a lot with ideas. By the time I left our little luncheon my self-esteem had risen three fold. He will be referring potential customers interested in display tablecloths to me. So, he’s one of my best friends now. Lol

I did get a drop of oil on a napkin today. That reminded me of a tip that I read not too long ago about embroidery. You know how you put sand on your driveway pavement to remove oil spills from changing oil in your car? (I know this because my daddy was a mechanic.) If you get oil drops on your shirt or any cloth, put baby powder on it. It’s the same principal. The baby powder absorbs the oil and leaves a nice smell to the cloth.

Cajun Stitchery will be closed tomorrow. As you all know, we are going to Wausau, FL to the Possum Festival. I plan on perusing all of the arts and crafts. In fact, George and I are going before the rest of our gang, by a couple of hours, to take a slow drive and look at all of the scenery and hopefully get some extra time at the arts and crafts. Our anniversary is August 14th and we’ve decided to make this weekend the celebration. We have been married for 39 years as of August 14, 2009. I’m sure we’ll be dancing in the streets this weekend. Not to mention that one of my granddaughter’s birthday is Sunday and I will certainly bring back something possum for her.

George has become quite proficient at the patches and is turning them out faster than I can count.

Always remember that we are just a call or email away at or 850-261-2462 and place your order.

Cajun Stitchery has over 50,000 stock designs and numerous fonts from which to create your work of art.

For Valentines Day Boudreaux wanted to get Clotile, his wife, a real surprise. She had been wanting a milk bath for a long time.

So Boudreaux told his friend Pierre, he say, "Pierre," he say, "I wanna give Clotile a milk bath for Valentine Day." He say, "Why don't you bring you cow over to da house and put me some milk in da battub."

And Pierre say, "Okay, Boudreaux," he say, "Dat milk, you want dat pasteurize?"

Boudreaux thought about it a while, then said, "No, just so it covers her belly, dat's all I want."
French phrase of the week: Qui sait?

Although Cajun Stitchery began with a Singer Quantum Futura embroidery machine, it wasn’t long before we realized a commercial machine would be necessary. In addition to the Singer, we use a SWF 1201C Commercial Embroidery Machine, which has a top speed of 1200 stitches per minute. Man, dat’s fast, yes!!!
