Mystery Quilt
We still have a few spots open for this fun and creative event! You will get a clue and expert instruction each month leading to a beautiful 'adventure' quilt. Why do we call it an adventure? Because every month you will get a new technique and can design it from the fabrics in your stash or from the purchases you make throughout the year. When you go on vacation and stop at quilt shops along the way, you'll say to yourself, "Won't this fat quarter look great in my Mystery Quilt at Sew Fabulous?" How much fun to look at the finished result and remember all the adventures you had finding the fabrics and making the quilt!
Stop in the store or go to to sign up.


The PFAFF Passport 3.0 has arrived. This is a great little machine with built in IDT (dual feed by PFAFF). Perfect for small places and going places. Stop in and see this adorable machine.

We finally have the Travel Mate 30 back in the store. This is a very popular machine and quantities are limited.
