SEWING MACHINES LOVE CABINETS
Give your sewing and embroidery machines a real home.
It’s hard to get excited about sewing if you have to clear off the kitchen table,
or reach into the closet for your sewing machine.
We have lots of sizes and styles to choose from,
from very small and inconspicuous, to huge and dominating.

This is”AVA”
from Arrow Cabinets.

Multi-Thread
Machines.
Come in and see how many choices you have.
We carry Koala,  Horn,  Roberts,  Arrow,  and Kangaroo Cabinets.
The cabinet of your dreams can be available
 in just a few days from ordering.
Assembly available for most styles.
 
BLAME YOUR CELL PHONE !
We have noticed that the embroidery machines
“just don’t work right” when a cell phone is lying next to it.
So if your machine seems to be off, try moving your cell phone away.
We also noticed cell phones causing problems
during computer digitizing classes.
As soon as we put our cell phones away, the computer problems cleared up.
Don’t know what else to say about that.
TERIAL MAGIC  &  WEB BOND
Embroider without Stabilizer!
Scan’n'Cut without backing!


TERIAL MAGIC
will take your soft fabrics and stiffen them,
so they will hold shapes and not fray away.
It’s like giving your fabrics paper-like qualities
so that you can more easily cut, sew, iron and shape
into what ever you want.
Perfect for embroidery and applique.
ALSO great for Scan’n'Cut and printing on fabrics.
Completely washes out.
WE LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!
WEB BOND
is a re-positional temporary
WEB spray adhesive,
rather than an aerosol spray,
so much less mist and mess.
Great for
embroidery and applique,
or anytime you need
a re-positional hold.
