We are currently open Tuesday through Saturday, 10a-4p. (Closed on Sunday and Monday.) No appointment necessary. Check the front page of our website for any changes before you come, just in case.
Masks are required, and we have a limit on the number of customers in the store at one time. So far, this hasn't been much of an issue, and wait times, if any, have been short.
We are also helping people shop via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just let us know what you're thinking, and we can put something together for you. We offer curbside pickup and $5 flat rate shipping on most items!
Check out our online store here. If you see something you like, just call or email if you can't add it to your online cart. We are doing lots of special requests right now.
This year, we've had a hard time keeping up with the demand for new sewing machines, especially in the entry level category. We're happy to announce that we currently have several from which to choose! We have literally waited months to get these machines.
Please note that the prices you see at the links are MSRP, but in many cases we have sale prices on these machines. Almost all Baby Lock, Bernina, Bernette and Janomes are back ordered right now due to huge demand during the pandemic. But don't worry; we're taking modest deposits to order machines. Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions about pricing or availability. At the moment, email is the easiest way for us to communicate, but call us if you prefer. We would love to help you!
We want to keep you sewing! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have about your sewing machine. We're having really good results trouble-shooting via email. We are not taking in machines on a regular basis at this time, but do have an appointment wait list going. Please email us first, and we'll go from there.
Tune in to our Facebook page to see all the latest. We have both scheduled and "surprise" live fabric unboxings almost daily! If you haven't seen an unboxing video yet, it's strangely exciting. :-) We're selling out of some of these fabrics within a few days, so be sure to let us know ASAP if you see something you want. Email at email@example.com is preferred, but you can call as well.
We're also doing a new FB Live series called "Stitch Witchery" with Bethany and Sydney on Saturday mornings. They show how to make quick and easy projects and share techniques. Be sure to tune in next Sat., Oct. 17 when guest instructor Chris Eichner will be demonstrating the Mosaic Art Quilt technique, including some thread painting!
All of our previous videos are available to watch, and we just got them labeled for you to make them easier to find.

Prepare to be blown away! Bernina has just introduced two new Air Threaded sergers. You can see the overlock-only L850 here, Bernina L850, and the L890 cover stitch and overlock serger here, Bernina L890. In addition to One-Step Air Threading, the L890 has a color touchscreen designed to make serging a breeze! I also really love the free-arm capability on these sergers. We now have both of these on the floor so that you can see how easy they are to use, and we're currently taking deposits for these amazing machines.
Bernina also introduced a 790 Plus Special Edition, with an amazing "Peacock Flourish" motif. We have one on the floor at the moment to show, but this is a limited edition, so we only have ONE of these coming that is not spoken for already! In addition to a fabulous bundle including special edition suitcases and 300 additional embroidery designs, this comes with a matching Bernina 480 with the peacock design. Share the love of sewing with someone or use the 480 as your travel machine! See the 790 Plus Special Edition here.
Just a heads up. Our email newsletter provider is retiring soon. We've been with them almost 20 years! So, don't be surprised if our emails look different in the future. It's still us!
Last month, I was honored to be chosen as the recipient of the 2020 Nancy Zieman Humanitarian Award by Baby Lock. This award goes to an individual who makes a difference in the community. As you all know, this award was a group effort! Our staff and wonderful customers always give and give and give when asked. Examples of your generosity include the ACC Customer Quilt Show to benefit MANNA Food Bank, the annual Stash Bash to support Santa Pal, Bra-La-La for Hope Chest for Women, Sewing for Hospice, and countless other examples of community involvement.
I can never thank our staff enough for what they've accomplished during this crazy year. I am doing the virtual learning with my grandson this year, which has taken an unbelievable amount of time. The girls have really stepped up and taken the bull by the horns, and I appreciate it so much! Next time you see them, let them know they're doing a good job!
I'm also humbled and grateful for our customers, who have really gone above and beyond to support and encourage us during this time. I know I have said this on every email, but I just can't thank you all enough! - Robin
