The LONG ARM CENTER is completing a renovation and renewal featuring the Grace Quilter's Evolution Elite frame. 
This frame represents the Grace Company’s effort to provide an elite, customizable frame quilting experience. This top-of-the-line frame is designed for quilters who are serious about their craft. The frame’s modular design allows the customer to create a frame that perfectly fits their space:

• Available for purchase in lengths of 8’, 10’, and 12’
• No-baste rail system
• Adjustable height for added comfort
• New frame track design to create even smoother movement for the carriage

The Janome Continental M17 does not fit into any of the standard sewing machine cabinets.  Bob just put together this setup that can move up or down to fit the sewist and has an Arrow notions cabinet for storing thread and additional parts. Stop into the shop to test drive it.



We are excited that we have one of the first new technology pattern design and customization systems that will change the way garment construction has been done for the last 100 years!  Ditto is described as "the first-ever digital pattern projection system for home sewists that combines algorithmic intelligence with digital projection to make patterns paperless, customizable, and adaptable to specific body measurements – all in real-time. The Beginning Sewing Class taught by Bernadette, will start in September and will use Ditto patterns.

These two classes are for those who have completed the Beginning Samper Set class.  After you sign up for the class, you will be given a supply list.

Templee is a method of reverse appliqués using rulers.  A middle layer of “peeker” fabric is used with fusible webbing called Templee Fuse.  This class can be done with just the sampler set, or any other templates you may have.  Templee class will be held September 28, 10 am until about 3.  The cost is $40.

Feathers class are 1 day, 10 am until about 3.  The cost is $40.  If you do not have the Feathers 4 piece Set (WT-FS4), you will need to let me know soon so they can be ordered to arrive in time for the class. Sew Steady products are available at Art of Sewing and class supplies will be given a 20% discount.

The Art of Sewing was formerly known as Sew Sales and Service has been in business since 1974. We are authorized Husqvarna Viking, Janome, Juki, Accuquilt, and Qnique dealer for purchase and repair. We stock many machine accessories plus Exquisite embroidery thread and stabilizers.
