Here's the new special for you from Viking:

Expires September 30th

Viking Convention is September 8-11 in Milwaukee.  The theme is "Keeping the World Sewing".
Denise, Georjean, Marty and Martha will be attending and will be back with lots of ideas to show and tell!
While they're gone, come on in for a "While the cat's away, the mice will play" event and get a free Fat 8th with any purchase!

You can pre-order a brand new Designer Ruby Royale -before any of us ever see it!  For a $500 deposit before Monday, Sept. 8, you get a very special offer from Viking.  Click here to see more. 

Shop Hop time is almost here!!!

This year is flying by and Shop Hop is sneaking up on us! 
Oct. 10, 11, 17  and 18th. 

Click on this LINK to see a copy of the Shop Hop 2014 flyer.
The theme this year is "Quilting and Quisine" so it will be food-based.  Doesn't get any better than that!  Tickets are still $5 and flyers are available in the shop. 

 Gems of the Prairie Quilt Show is coming up - at the Civic Center in Peoria on Saturday, September 27 and Sunday, September 28. We will have a booth there, so come say hello!!!
Here's a link to the Gem's Show for more info.

September Make-It-Take-It-
Saturday, September 20th at 10am or 2pm

Claudette will show you how to make this adorable little thread catcher. All you have to do is register and be there - we supply everything - including the machines!  Kit fee is $4.  Please call shop to reserve your spot.

Just a reminder - all of our New Owner's Classes are FREE!!! They are open to anyone who has purchased a machine of any model from us, regardless of how long ago that purchase was. (We know how busy life can be and how hard it is to remember EVERYTHING!)   The class descriptions are listed when you click on the class - and if you're not sure about whether your machine fits a certain class, just ask! 
We do ask that you register for these classes in advance.  If we don't have at least 2 registered, we will have to reschedule the class.  However, we will be teaching all 4 of the classes several dates and different times every month, so there is sure to be another one scheduled soon.

"Oh, Clementine" from Windham
