It's a great time to buy a sewing machine.....
Baseball is in it's post-season, football is moving along and basket ball is beginning!  There is sports on radio and TV and home game seats for the sports fans in the family.  It's a great season for sewing!!!  If your machine is limping along through all the projects you have lined up for decorating and gifting, come in to Norwalk Vacuum and Sewing to get a new machine (well of course you need a strong, dependable creative-opportunity machine!) and have a great chance to finish those projects.  This is the time to get a new machine.  We have machines from the basic all the way to sophisticated, top-of-the-line models.  One or two (did you know you can gather fabric with a serger?) of these machines will be your tool of choice. 
Clogged vacuum hoses or tubes are a cleaning nightmare.... you vacuum and vacuum and still have dirt on the floor.  Your bagless vacuum has fine dust all over the exterior and isn't working like it did when you first got it.  Clogged filters happen so easily from fine dirt, powders, flour that spilled in the kitchen.  We can take care of all those problems or help you choose a new vacuum for the one that no longer works.   
We will help you get it done!

VIKING/PFAFF SOFTWARE WORKSHOP
WEDNESDAY 8th 10am-12pm

 

Software workshop is becoming popular. Where else can you find a small group where you can get answers to questions you have about your software? While many of the lessons are helpful, it is sometimes hard to remember how to perform simple tasks and we may need a little individual help. Most stores only teach the most current software version. We would like to help those with 5D, 6D or Premiere Husqvarna/Viking or Pfaff software. Of course, your computer must be up-to-date. The workshop will run 2 hours and the cost will be $15.00.  You will not be the only person in the class, so please bring your list of questions, and call the store to reserve your space. Class meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from 10am to 12pm.
