Hello! It's springtime in Montana... Almost 50 degrees a few says ago and this weekend it's snowing and snowing and snowing.

When was the last time you put a little drop of oil in your machine? Oiling the hook (the case your bobbin sits inside) on a regular basis will keep your machine purring and sewing like a champ. We recommend cleaning, changing your needle and adding a little drop of oil to the wick under your bobbin case (if needed) after the completion of a large project. This routine will get you ready for success with your next project. Not sure where to oil? Check your manual or give us a call.
Need a new machine? Let us help you get into the best tool for your best work. We've had deliveries like crazy lately. Plus, there's great sale going on with Janome until the end of the month- stop in and see the new models of machines!
