Michelle, good luck in growing your SU business next year. That sounds like a great goal. And knowing you are 1/3 of the way to your download goal already is a great motivator.
I got one of those Janome sewing machines earlier this year. It's out of the box, but hasn't been used yet. I, too, would love to master the card sewing thing. I really need to at least give it a try in 2013.
