Who remembers making tissue paper flowers with pipe cleaner stems and putting them into woven construction paper baskets on May Day? You would then hang it on the door of your favorite neighbor. The only thing to worry about back then was whether or not you could run fast enough to hide after you rang the doorbell and before they opened the door. We did that with the intention of showing someone they were loved and special! In reality, we don't need one day a year to bless our neighbosr with kindness. This month, be intentional about finding a way to show someone that you are glad they are in your life! Happy Quilting, Pam
We will be closed on Mother's Day - Happy Day to all our moms!
*****Mothers Day Special*****
During the month of May, bring in your sewing machine in for cleaning and
pay $50! That is $20 off the regular price of $70.
Jason (Sarina's husband) will do cleaning and repairs. He does have a full time job with flex days off so call to make an appointment to see about same day service. Otherwise you can leave it here and we will call you when it is ready for pick up.
We do not have room to carry a wide selection of sewing machine models so we have chosen a couple that we think best suits quilter's needs. However we can order any Janome machine and it usually only takes 4 days to get here!
Come in and check out these models!
