Dear Future Husqvarna Viking Sewing machine owner,

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Toni @ 4:28 pm

In these strange economic times, we have seen consumers, like you, postpone purchases that they believe to be more of a luxury than a need. Fortunately for you, that includes our premium brand Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond & Designer SE & SE LE sewing and embroidery machines.  Your inspirations can soon become realities. In order to stimulate your purchasing power, we are passing on REDUCED factory prices to our customers.  Say what you will but we are dedicated and focused on keeping you up to date, sewing and quilting on the best, and even embroidering at large! There is no other reason than we get a perk from the company and we pass it on. And in this case, it happens to be a rather large perk!

What would you say if we offered you the top-line DESIGNER DIAMOND or SE or SE LE machine for almost HALF PRICE?
Would you call us crazy???
What if we gave you free owners classes?
Would that make us crazy?
That would make us certifiably nuts, right?
Well, commit us for sure when we give you a full 24 months interest-free financing to pay for it!

Rumor control ladies!
Our company is strong, our shop is hustling and bustling and we’re selling machines like crazy these days! (yes, these days!) When we get a national Overstock special…we always pass the savings on to you…no matter how crazy it makes us look! So what’s the catch…cuz there’s always a small little catch, right?

And here it is – you have to want the latest in touch screen possibilities, “tons” of 9 mm stitches, 200+ built-in embroidery designs, MegaHoop capabilities for x-large pillow-tops, quilt blocks, and packet backs! USB transfer and free software for all of you embroidery enthusiasts out there…and SEW much more!!!!!

24 Months Interest-Free financing requires a $250 deposit…that’s all there is to it after you qualify for your Husqvarna Viking Home Design Card.

Bonus: (‘Cuz we’re not nuts enough…)
The first 6 SE or SE LE machines sold will receive a FREE Fabric Mover with stitch regulator ($1299 value).
The first 6 DESIGNER DIAMONDS will receive a Husqvarna Viking ER10 Felting machine (a $369 Value) and free embroidery designs.

Save even more with a trade-in!!!
I was so excited to get this offer from Viking since it means so many more of you will become Designer owners. And that means we’ll have some great trade-ins to pass along at great prices to the ‘newbies’ who are getting back into our world of creativity! I know almost half price sounds a bit “out there,” even for us…but I am thrilled to have an opportunity to be able pass this great special savings on to you.

I hope we have made your week! Keep smiling!

Jackie and staff

We’re Back!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Toni @ 9:05 pm

We have arrived safely home from Quilt Market!  We spend 4 days walking rows of vendor and suppliers.  We ordered many new fabrics, notions and patterns.  And we scheduled some exciting teachers for the following months!

We’ll spend this week posting reviews on the show and share our excitement with all the upcoming events we have in the stages of planning right now!

Day 1 Welcome To Spring Quilt Market 2009:


We arrived Thursday for School House classes and watch from above as the convention floor started to fill up with vendors:


After class most vendors were done by end of classes:



We learned a lot of next techniques and played with new notions and plan to have new notion demo’s monthly.

We learned how to use Big Print fabrics with some great new patterns from Grizzly Gulch Gallery and met many wonderful people including Jennifer Chiaverini, author of the Elm Creek Quilts books:


And also meet with Amy Butler as she shows us her new software project program.

We had an evening class with Jinny Beyer on how to use color, which was very insightful.  Jinny is an excellent instructor and wonderful person:


We had a lovely dinner at the Fish Market, right across from the convention center.  Then, we came back to the hotel exhausted, excited and awaited for Day 2.
