Greetings quilting and sewing friends,                                                                    

I'm not sure how it's the middle of December already.  It seems we just opened the shop!  We are busy unpacking new stock, getting ready for our grand opening on January 7th, and organizing classes and getting them onto the calendar and website   We have met so many of you in the shop since we officially opened the doors and we are so happy to be here to serve you.

I'll try and make this brief because I'm sure you are all busy as well. We don't want you to miss out on our latest news and offerings.


We received our latest shipment from Moda and Art Gallery Fabrics today.  They can be found here:

Our longarm certification classes are ready for booking.

You can call the store at 423-458-1566 to book, drop in or you can book online here:  Rental certification class.  This is a one time certification class after which you can book any of our quilting machines. We cover everything you need to know about operating the long arm from how to thread the machine, change the bobbin, load a quilt, use your favorite method of quilting (paper pantograph, free motion or rulers).  It's a 3 hour class and they are currently on the calendar for Thursday afternoons from 1-4 pm.  If you'd prefer a different date and time please reach out and we will do what we can to work with your schedule.


If you'd like to learn our amazing QuiltPath digital software for computerized quilting, there is a special certification class for that, after which you are able to use our Freddie longarm with QuiltPath.  Believe me when I say "it's a game changer!".  Our QuiltPath PowerPanto will have you finishing your quilts in record time.

And are never alone while you are renting one of our machines.  We are always right here to help.

Looking forward to classes for 2024: 

You've spoken and we've listened.  We now have youth classes on the calendar YOUTH CLASSES.  There are two classes, introduction to beginner sewing (hand sewing) followed by a class on using a sewing machine.  These are geared for 6-10 year olds.  If you know of homeschoolers or other young people who could benefit from this class check out the link.  We are keeping them as affordable as possible and we think this would be an excellent gift idea for a young person.

Do you wish we had beginner sewing for adults?  Well check this out:  ADULT BEGINNER SEWING (GARMENTS). It's also now on the calendar and ready for booking.

We have the very talented Diana Chavez teaching the Youth and Adult beginner sewing classes and please join us in welcoming her to our classroom.

We've also created a beginner bundle for those who would like to learn how to make a quilt and then move on to learn how to quilt it on a longarm.  Bundled, you save $25.00.  You can check it out here:  BEGINNER BUNDLE

Lastly, we can't sign off without saying "Don't forget that the Millie sale ends December 15th"!!  It's not too late for a test drive.  Please call the store to book and take advantage of this awesome sale.

Best wishes for a peaceful holiday season!  We hope to see you on January 7th noon to 5 pm for our Grand Opening.  We have some special things in store for you that day including the Best Coffee coffee truck onsite.

Please note:  We will be closed Monday, December 25th and Monday, January 1st.
