Customer Reviews

“One of the best sewing specialists I have seen in a long time. Stocks quality fabrics and machines as well as sewing notions that just don't easily get these days. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and there is a range of classes you can do from dressmaking and pattern fit taught by the wonderful Larraine Jenkins to loads of quilting classes. You could spend hours in this store.”
