One of the lovely customers at this store, Gail, gave me this charming mug rug with a kitty on it for me…..she knew we were making mug rugs and she had been busy at home with her own versions! Thank you, Gail.
Tony, Terry, Lois & Lynn at Findlays Vacuum & Sewing in Vernon, BC always put on a great event and the customers in Vernon sure are some of the friendliest I encounter on my travels. My recent visit was no exception……I had as much fun as the customers…….and the weather was just perfect early summer weather with beautiful warm sunshine to go with their Okanagan hospitality.
This customer showed us a little dress she made for her grand daughter using the Janome ruffle attachment to make all those ruffled layers on the skirt.
We tried something a little different on my visit to this store recently: in addition to the Quilting workshops we offered customers interested in “test driving” a new machine, we also offered Drop in – Meet the Educator sessions where customers were invited to pop in, bring their queries as well as their Show & Tell. Let me share what they shared!
Just look at this lovely big tote bag with decorative stitching.
