Happy Spring!!!

Spring has Sprung!


Longer days, warmer weather, and more sunshine!
(Not that we've had much of a winter here in Sunny Southern California ;)

 We're Spring-ing into high gear with some projects we're getting ready for Quilter's Run in June! We are all sewing away on our Janome sewing machines as fast as we can!



Many of you have asked which machines we like best...

Denise's favorite is the hardworking Horizon 8900.
This machine is terrific at everything- the included AcuFeed foot makes piecing, quilting, and binding a breeze, even with stretchy Minkee fabric!







Kathrine pieces away on the 3160 QDC- she loves all of the decorative stitches and the extra space she gets with the included table!

As a relatively new sewer she didn't think she needed the scissor feature... now it's one of her favorite things about using this light-weight machine!



Lisa loves to Embroider on the Memory Craft 9900!
The large hoops and ease of use make embroidery so easy and she loves that she can also customize the look of the machine with the 3 included face plates in red, teal, and white :)





Want to learn more about these amazing machines?
Come on into the Shoppe and we'll show you all of the fantastic things they can do!
We can also help you get your very own with interest-free Layaway or easy financing.

We've partnered with Aqua Finance to bring you financing options so you can easily get the machine of your dreams! Flexible terms and quick approval.
Come see us for more information :)
