The PFAFF Creative Icon is indeed an “icon” in the sewing and embroidery field. If you’re not familiar with this wonderful machine, find out all the details in a couple of previous blogs: PFAFF® Unveils the New Creative Icon Sewing and Embroidery Machine! and The Wait Is Finally Over: The PFAFF Creative Icon Is Here!

This machine is so wonderful and so powerful. It’s no wonder that Emily was so excited when she unboxed one!

These fun and inspiring February events are filled with creativity.  Learn about the latest in stabilizers, notions, feet, hoops and much more.  See a fabulous trunk show from our Pfaff educator.

Get inspired and excited to try something new from general sewing to creative embroidery ideas .

See just how easy it is to create or personalize embroideries using the PREMIER + TM2 embroidery software.  There is something for everyone to learn and enjoy during this presentation no matter your embroidery skill level.  Discover how to do basic manipulation of design to make them your own, and then explore your options to create designs from scratch.  Get inspired and fall in love with Pfaff machines and software all while having fun!

Sew on any project you want – quilt, sew, embroider, knit, create or complete that UFO (unfinished objects/projects).

Be motivated, spark new interest, meet new sewing friends. Come to an Open Sew session at one of our locations/times listed below. Click on the date you’re interested in to register.
