We are still receiving Christmas and Holiday fabrics. So many projects and so many different fabrics to choose from!!

Are you thinking about a new sewing machine for Christmas….come see us as we carry Janome machines and Handi-Quilter Longarm machines? We have light weight Janome machines and we carry the embroidery machines (MC15000, E500, and S9). If you’re looking for something to take to classes and retreats we have the Janome 3160QDC, M7200, & the Anna Marie Horner Limited Edition M100 and the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Edition machines. AND Darrell services what we sell here in our shop. Turn around on machine repair is usually 1-2 days. So be sure to check us out first.

If you are in the market for a longarm, talk to Darrell. He will come to your house and set the machine up and teach you how to use it. You don’t get this kind of service everywhere. Talk to us first!
