BIG News!

Big, BIG, BIG NEWS!!!

We've had a hard time keeping our excitement contained and there are some rumors circulating so we decided it's time to reveal our next big step...




Tops and Bobbins is now an Authorized Janome Dealer!!!


We are thrilled to be partnering with such a wonderful brand and be able to bring you their fantastic sewing machines!

Those of you who know us know that we are dedicated to providing our quilters with the very best quality products and we believe that Janome machines will enhance the other wonderful goods we have to offer in our Shoppe :)


We'll be meeting with the Janome team this week to place our very first order so we'll have sewing and embroidery machines in the Shoppe very soon!





Bringing in sewing machines means we'll need to adjust our class schedule a bit so we can offer exciting new quilting and embroidery classes...


We will be continuing our Sit and Sew, UFO Day on the 1st Monday of each month; the next one on the schedule is August 4th at 10:30am - 3:30pm


Quilts of Valor will also have a new schedule... starting in August we will be meeting once a month; that date will be announced soon.


Thank you for all of your support and good wishes... We couldn't make this step without all of you. 

THANK YOU!!!




THIS WEEK'S SPECIAL

It's Summertime so we think that it's the perfect time to have a "Yard Sale!"

Also, we need to make some room for the new sewing machines ;)

Buy 3 continuous yards and get the 4th yard FREE!

This applies to even our new fabrics so come see all of the gorgeous new yardage we have this week!

"Minky" Cuddle fabrics, precuts, and panels are excluded from the Yard Sale.

This sale is also for our online customers, no coupon code needed... Just put 3 continuous yards in your online shopping cart and we'll throw in the 4th yard free :)
