Dave has been hard at work and has a few used machines that are available for sale. He has gone through them top to bottem, checked and rechecked, and cleaned them inside and out. So if you are thinking of getting another machine or maybe a gift to start out the younger generation these might be just perfect for you. Stop in and have a look.
Block Of The Month
Lone Star Pizzazz will be starting in March. If you aren't sure or can't remember what this quilt looks like we do have a finished quilt on display at the shop with kits available in the original fabric the pattern calls for. The cost to buy into the B.O.M is $25.00. Our kits are $180.00 but if you want to use different fabric thats okay too. We are trying something a little different. If you buy ALL the fabric for this quilt from us you will receive %10 off the cost of fabric. That also includes if you buy the kit. So example would be the kit is $180.00 but since you bought all the fabric from us it becomes $160.00.
There are some great deals going on this month with Baby Lock.
Rebates: $400.00 rebate on the Ellisimo Gold 2, $400.00 rebate on the Eneterprise 10 needle, $250.00 rebate on the 6 needle Endurance 2, $100.00 rebate on the Crescendo, $300.00 rebate on the Ovation, and the big wow is the Sashiko is 50% off.
These mind blowing deals are good through 2-28-2014.
These are some great deals and then when you add 0% financing that will be going on Feb. 13th through 17th its makes for an awsome deal. Stop in today and test out your next machine with us.
