SWD is hosting Internationally known Machine Quilting Educator, Debby Brown at our shop this coming weekend! There four classes to take (two on Friday, October 13th & two on Saturday, October 14th). If you've ever wanted to know more tips and tricks for working with longarms, getting to know the machines better, and techniques to bring your quilting to the next level, these are great classes, and very inexpensive as we subsidize them to keep the prices down. Here are the links to the four classes with details ~ you can register online, or contact the shop (410)381-0695.
"Stepping Stone Techniques to Turn Fabric into a Quilt!"
"Get in on the Ruler Mania"
"Machine Quilting Problem Solving to Achieve the Perfectly Quilted Quilt"
"Put a Feather on Your Quilt"
This is also a great time to jump in and purchase a new machine...upgrade your existing machine...or add that Pro-Stitcher computerized system!
SWD is offering Special Event Pricing plus Free Shipping on Handi Quilter Machine packages at our Event so it's a great time to buy if you've been thinking of purchasing a longarm. Event Pricing and Free Shipping on machines is available to anyone even if you don't attend the event classes through October 19th.
We have some very new Shop Demo machines on sale during this promotion too...and Handi Quilter is offering special end of year model discounts on new Avante and Fusion systems so contact us if you want the pricing and details on any machine!
