Guess Who Came To Play at AST?

Who are these women listening so intently to?



Can you believe it's Hope Yoder!!
Oh, my gosh!



Isn't she a doll?



Hope came with her friend Peggy, to share helpful hints, new products and, most importantly, her beautiful designs with our friends. You could actually feel the excitement build as women poured out of cars in the parking lot! It was like watching little girls lining the stairway waiting for Santa Claus. Really.



The girls at the shop prepared bags with corresponding number "paddles" so, when a product was available for purchase, all the women had to do was raise their number and the girls would place it in that bag. Such an easy way of making sure that everyone was happy!
The hot product of the day was Hope's new Button~Ups! fabric covered button machine. Oh, my- the possibilities for extreme fun with this machine are endless!



How cute is this key chain? Everyone received one as a gift.



And this lovely gal is modeling the cutest hairband. It makes me wish I had a tiny head. ;)


Hope's talents are many and her designs are absolutely stunning. I really had no idea that you could make so many things with an embroidery machine. I must live in a hole. My eyes were certainly opened to this amazing and beautiful world that Hope has created.


Hope and Karen Taylor, owner of AST.
Thank you, Hope.
You filled our shop with joy and beauty and
inspired each woman who shared the day with you.

Please visit Hope's website to see her beautiful designs for yourself.
