You might wonder if this is a pic taken somewhere in the UK? No, it is Stratford, Ontario…..home of the winner of our giveaway in April and home of our Janome dealer: Sew & Save Center
You might recall the announcement of the winner of the Wonderfil thread inspirations pack – our giveaway for the month of April 2015 – was Bev Louwagie of Stratford, Ontario. She recently went into her local Janome dealer, Sew & Save Centre, to collect her prize. Mark, the owner of this Janome dealership, was there to welcome her and hand over the Wonderfil thread.

We thought we would use this opportunity to shine the spotlight on this charming city where you will also find our Janome dealership: Sew and Save Center. I visited Stratford for the first time last October and was just enchanted. I really hope I will be able to go back someday and explore the quaint streets and take in a theatre show or 2 during the season.

Mark and his staff at Sew & Save Centre do a great job of looking after their customers…..I know because many of the customers told me so!

We are so lucky to have Sew & Save to provide both awesome machines and superior service. Mark, Dempsey, and Karen take such good care of their customers and always go out of their way to answer any questions and help with any purchase. They know their product and make sure their clients get the right machine for their needs and learn how to use it. I feel so fortunate to have a dealer right in the heart of beautiful Stratford who I can rely on when I need help, accessories and supplies…or a new machine!!!!! Thanks, Liz, for featuring our lovely city and our fantastic dealer, Sew & Save!!!
What a nice big classroom they have in Stratford. The city looks pretty to, which makes for great creativity.

It’s nice to see MY dealer featured. Mark takes very good care of his clients and the classes are very informative. Sew & Save is a good place. Thanks for the feature.
Thanks for your comments. We did feature Sew & Save Centre last year after my visit there in October 2014. You could search the archives if you missed that one.
