There will be 15 different vendors offering everything from books, fabric notions, kits and much much more. The best part is we will be there!!!! There is no cost to come to this shopping spree so make it a fun-filled weekend with your friends.
As for up coming classes.... We are still working on that. Due to the cold spell we had, we were unable to have our store planning meeting and get things on the calendar. No worries we will get them figured soon.
Also we have been thinking over the idea of changing brands of embroidery thread that we carry. As of right now we have Robison-Anton and they have been a good thread for us and our machines. We would like to know your thoughts and suggestions on threads and why you feel that way. We are taking a poll, so please send us an e-mail or a message on facebook or even just let us know in person the next time you are in the shop. All input will be considered and welcomed. Thank you in advance.
Call us with any questions you have.
