How Perfect Is That?

Pretty Darn Perfect!!!!!!

Best of Show Paducah 2015 winner Renae Haddadin (front pieced by Karen Kay Buckley) is shown here raising her winning cup high!  Renae is in front of the quilt back, which shows her perfect work in the best way.  She says the Innova with Lightning Stitch has "upped her game".  Well, I guess it has, she has now won Best of Show at Paducah TWO times!  Check out other photos and see the front of the quilt further down in the blogs.  Learn about winning quilt competitions there too!

Way to GO Renae!!!  Congratulations, you're the BEST!!!

AutoPilot Mach3

We gave everyone a sneak peak of AutoPilot Mach3 at Quilt Market in November. So what's the scoop?!?! 

Currently Mach3 is being thoroughly tested. We have a great team of Beta testers and they are working on it daily. This helps us ensure that when it does go out to everyone, it's got 99% of the quirks worked out. We try our best!

So what is it and why is it called Mach3?!

Glad you asked! Mach3 is all new software, not an update from your current software. We are working out the steps to make sure that goes smoothly too. As usual it will come with a set of specific instructions.  It also is going to change features on your Lightning Stitch screen to make it all more user friendly.

Our AutoPilot owners had lots of requests for features. The more we created, the more we found we were limited by the platform our software was designed on. So we had to reinvent the wheel! Time consuming, but so worth it!!!!  We kept the features everyone loves and added as many as we could from our users "wish list".
