Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous

Hello From Sew Fabulous,

Happy Monday, y'all! It's August 1; where did July go? We've got lots going on at the store so I'll jump right in.

Would you love to have a long-arm machine but don't have the space? We've got the answer...BERNINA Q16 on a folding table. We just took delivery of a few of these wonderful machines and Shae would love to demonstrate how to quilt your own quits using one of these beauties. The leaves drop down on each side to save space when not in use.

Are you looking for an embroidery and sewing machine? We have several in stock including the BERNINA 590 Crystal Edition - it's the same price as the normal machine but the Crystal Edition comes with a roller bag for the machine, a carrying bag for the embroidery module and a box of Swarovski crystals. All in all, the freebies total about $4600.

How about a new quilt kit? Ross and I collaborated on this design and we hope you love it as much as we do. The finished quilt is 57" x 81". KITS ARE AVAILABLE.

Every quilters moto:


JANOME has a new sales event that goes from  August 1 - September 30, 2022. We have many of the machines listed in the sales brochure here in the store so you can stop in and check them out. Go to, click on machines and bonuses to see all the great machines that are included in this sale.

I have an opportunity to bring a PFAFF Educator to show us all the wonderful things the Performance and Creative Icons can do. I need at least three people to tell me they would like to hear this educator sell us on these wonderful machines. If you'd like to learn more and possibly get one of the Icons, please let me know.

Of course you saw the Q16, but don't forget the KAFFE FASSETT Editions are coming soon. They will be on display at the Grand Rapids quilt show and I'll have them in my store toward the end of August/beginning of September. I will have special pricing to match what you see at the Quilt Show in Grand Rapids so plan to come in and see me. If you already know you want one, stop in and give a deposit to hold your machine(s). These will be very limited edition and once they're gone, there won't be any more.
