Virtual Fall Shop Hop

September 24, 25, 26 & 27

We are certainly disappointed our shop hop could not go ahead this fall, but we wouldn't want you to miss shopping at the great stores invited to participate this year! They have all been working hard to expand their on line stores and look forward to having you drop by and check them out!

Each store has made a video just for this event and will be featuring a product or two, or presenting a demo on a technique etc. Listen carefully to their video to hear their special word. Write down the special word and then unscramble the words to create a statement.


Send the statement to one of the stores to be entered into a special draw to win $50 from each store! (total prize $450!)

Each store will be also drawing a name from those customers who made an on line purchase during our shop hop event. The lucky winner will receive a $100 gift certificate for that store!

Woohoo! Stores will also be offering daily specials, bonus gifts & more!

Visit www.fallshophop.com to see a complete list of stores and their website link.

 Virtual Class Pass

And now for something completely different!

As you know, we are unable to resume in store classes, but we wanted to stay in touch and hopefully keep connected with you. We have come up with what we hope will be a wonderful solution to having classes in the store - we will offer them Virtually!

Starting in October, we have rounded up many of our regular teachers and added some special guest teachers from out of the area to offer a variety of Zoom based classes. Many of you have found out how easy Zoom is to use and since it may be a while before we can meet again for classes in the store, this is the next best thing. The Zoom class will be geared to a specific project or technique, where the teacher will go through the section with you and then you will have the week to complete the "assignment" until you meet again to share homework, issues etc. Access to the teachers via email during your session will also be provided.

The best part - you don't have to leave home, lug your sewing machine, drive through snow...

All this for just $25 - that's right, take one, two or as many - (or all )- of the classes for just $25!

Purchase your Virtual Class Pass for $25 (plus tax) today! The class pass expires at the end of the year. Click here to order your Virtual Class Pass!

See all of our classes being offered on the Virtual Class Page

Sea Islands

If you are not able to go to the sunny Islands this winter, maybe you need to bring a bit of the Islands home to you! Sea Islands is a beautiful quilt made up of 12 different blocks.

The breakdown of the blocks is shown below. Recommended for those with confident sewing skills.

As many of you know, supply of certain products are in short supply worldwide, and sewing machines are definitely hard to come by these days.  

I have limited stock at the store and may not be able to get new stock on many sewing machine models until October. If you are thinking of a new machine, please let me know so that I can arrange for stock as soon as it is available.

Due to limited stock worldwide, there will be no Fall Flyer Promotion this year from PFAFF. I will be maintaining the summer sale prices until the end of the year for anyone that wants to order a machine.
