A Quilter's Folly

A Quilter's Folly




Hi, I had to buy a new sewing machine yesterday. My old one was bought in 1958. I bought the easiest singer (4411) and only plan to use it for straight stitching with only one needle. I have tried to figure out how to thread it and thread the bobbin. Is there any one on your staff that could help me . I think one hour lesson would be enough and what ever price you charge would be wonderful. If I don't hear from you, I'll call and make an appointment if you are able to come to my rescue! Thanks, Sue Wilcoxson 512 813 1034

I wish you had a satellite store in San Marcos!
You ladies are magical! Thank you for all that you are doing!❤️
Dear ones, keep safe. Looking forward to the times when things calm down and you can reopen.
Had to chuckle!

Saw 4 great stores in the Shop Hop yesterday. Each store seems to have different fabric lines and classes offered. I loved doing this with another quilting friend. Thanks for the Hop and opportunity to meet so many great quilters!
Thank you thank you thank you!
I couldn't have done it without the love and support (and patience) of everyone involved with getting me to this achievement! Lol!
It's a fabulous way to learn!
