Hello, October!! The Holidays are getting closer and closer all the time. It won’t be long and we’ll be into the “crunch” time of getting everything ready for decorating and family. Why not begin now instead of waiting? Come in and see what we have already finished up and get some ideas to make for yourself. We have bench pillows (patterns and kits), we have wall hangings, table runners and lots more to choose from.

And while you are here….look over all the new machines that we have to offer. The new 4120QDC Blue is in stock and the Memory Craft 6700P which is a “workhorse” of a machine. The M7200 is a very popular machine. Our top of the line Memory Craft 15000 Quilt Maker is such an awesome machine that it is hard to describe! And remember that Sharynn’s Quilt Box will meet all competitors pricing. We offer service on site and lessons to learn your machine.

Do you have a young person who is interested in sewing? Maybe they need a new machine. We have a machine for every need!

We are a Handi-Quilter Dealer too. So you can get a sewing machine to piece your project and a quilting machine to quilt it! We still have the Demo Sale going on so come in and see the possibilities.
