We always welcome donations of your previously loved machines. Along with a bunch of supporters and facilitators, we manage to donate used machines to women who can not afford them, but make excellent use of them. These projects can be life altering, thanks to your generosity.
This is the latest graduating sewing class from Colorada Dominican Republic. Each graduate was awarded a sewing machine to take home. You may even see your machine in these pictures. It was a very exciting day for these ladies. Thanks once again to those who so generously donated to this cause.
The "Fall 2014 Newsletter" tab will give you the PDF "Pretty Version".(Updated Sept. 23, 2014)
(Note: Supply Lists are only linked in the online calendars)
Be sure to read the Workshop Notes at the end of the Newsletter regarding cancellation and refund policies.
Lots of great new workshops - new Block of the Month Quilt, new fashion classes, new quilting techniques, and..... an exciting Guest Celebrity Educator will be visiting us in November.
Stay tuned for the announcements . The Fall is going to be really busy at the Oakville Sewing Centre.
We consider it polite and ethical to respectfully request you to purchase fabrics and supplies from theOakville Sewing Centre when registered for one of our workshops (unless specified otherwise). We thank you for your courtesy which supports our ability to continue a costly education program.
Your sewing equipment requires TLC just like an other machine. It should be cleaned (and oiled, depending on the machine) on a regular basis. Always use good quality thread, needles, and make sure that you are using the bobbins that were designed for your machine. This all sounds very elementary, but these tips will assist in the quality of your sewing experience. However, periodically, your machine will need the assistant of a sewing technician, for either a repair or a routine tune up.
Our factory trained technician comes to our store once a week, when the store is closed. All machines must be received no later than noon on Saturday of any week to be repaired that week. If no parts or extraordinary repairs are required, your machine will be ready for pick up the following Tuesday morning when the store opens at 10:00 a.m.
Our minimum bench charge is $50 for any repairs.
Machine assessment and estimates are $40- which can be used toward the labour charge if you decide to proceed with the repair.
Your best buy might be at your local fabric store which offers specials and discounts every day.
Something to ponder!!
