Quilt Mercantile is CLOSED Nov. 26th-30th/embroidery machine basics class Dec. 3rd/2016 retreats


Quilt Mercantile Fall update

We hope this finds you preparing for a fun time with family/friends for Thanksgiving.  Please remember that we will be closed from November 26th-30th. Closed also--December 24th-January 4th.

For those of you who own an embroidery machine that need extra help to begin using it with confidence---Brenda Jeschke has a Basic Embroidery Machine class on our schedule for December 3rd, 2015 from 10-3 for $45.  All machine brands welcome.  She will teach an embroidery retreat December 4th-6th, 2015.  This retreat is geared to let you work on any project that has given you difficulty and you need some guidance from Brenda.  We have room in both of these offerings.  Let us know asap if you want to join either.

We have several "quilty" stocking stuffers if you need a guild present.  We have in stock several of the comfortable fun and bright sewing chairs by Arrow--perfect thing to put on your Christmas wish list.  The new iron by Clover has been well received by all.  It is small and gets very hot.  Pearl loves it for her method!  We love the new LED lights by Sewlite.  There are bulbs for the featherweight, LED units to put on your regular sewing machine, the Brightpad "lightbox" for tracing, and LED units that hang down to light up your work space.  Make sure to ask us to see our samples next time you visit our store.  Do you have a specific item you want ordered?  Visit www.checkerdist.com.  We order almost weekly from them.  They have an excellent website with very good search features.

Come take a test drive on an Elna sewing machine if that is on your wish list. We have their brand new embroidery only machine that has LARGE hoops.  This is a big deal!  We also have the HandiQuilter quilting machines in stock if you want to come take a test drive.  Both of our demo machines need to go before end of year so they are at GREAT prices!  We strive to give support education for quilters.  Jackie Brown will teach at our next Long Arm Club meeting on February 27th, 2016.  Jackie has scheduled a retreat for domestic sewing machines and sit down units April 22nd-24th, 2016. Jackie is available to teach private quilting classes every Wednesday except when our store is closed.  Education is the key to success with quilting!  (Of course we also believe owning a Handi Quilter helps a lot too!)
