I will be more than happy to show you how to use the bamboo with your software. It has many uses and in layout and editing with the pencil drawing tool works like drawing with a pen to create free motion embroidery. I will have to be reminded before I pack to put mine in the briefcase, so shoot me a reminder. I haven't been traveling with it lately, I have been trying to lighten my load a bit.
I hope to see you in Maryland! By the way, thank you for commenting. I often feel I am talking to myself and wonder if I should continue the blog.
