A simple reminder - keep ALL other loose threads or fabric away from the hand wheel prior to sewing. This giant ball of thread was once a full spool of serger thread. Our skilled technician removed this from the hand wheel of a machine that was brought in to us.
Remember that we have two qualified technicians to service all you Husqvarna Viking machines. They guys do a great job and usually have your machines back to you within 1 week, so that you are back up and sewing in no time! No appointments needed. Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Fabric Fusion is hosting our first ever retreat! The “Give Back Retreat”
will be held on Sept. 13, 14 and 15th. Our retreat will offer demos, door prizes and the opportunity to give back to our community by building a quilt which we will donate to a local charity. How it works is Fabric Fusion is donating the fabric and we ask that each participant build us a minimum of two blocks (patterns provided) while they are here and we will put the quilt together once blocks are completed. The Sandman Hotel has offered a special room rate for those who need accommodations. Please drop into the store or call for further details.
We are very excited to be adding Modern Blended Quilts

Another new specialist is Nancy Strath who is a Certified Judy Niemeyer Instructor. She recently completed training to become a Gem Affiliate representing MJ Kinman, Textile Artist to teach her Gemstone Series of patterns. We are working on getting her to teach a class in the fall, and would like expressions of interest in this. In the classes Nancy will break each gemstone down and demonstrate any new techniques and tips and hints on how to most easily create that block. There are 12 individual patterns representing traditional birthstones, each 17” block is created with easy freezer paper piecing, they can create a gorgeous art quilt, wedding gifts, pillows, tote bags, baby quilt, or Mother’s Day quilt featuring family birthstones.
