Went to Scarborough Sewing Centre today with Jenny, to pick up her new sewing machine (4900QC). Hundreds and hundreds of bolts of quilting cottons all at £3.90 pm. I bought some Christmas and some Autumn themed. Every inch is packed from floor to ceiling - don't think I have ever seen so much in one place. Keith, the owner, took the machine out of the box and gave Jenny a good run through of what the machine could do - it was interesting as it reminded me of a lot of things I had forgotten about. I'd highly recommend a visit to this shop, it's worth travelling to for its range of fabric and the service was excellent too.
Had a play when I got home and I think I've mastered the elongation and memory recall features at last.
Scarborough Sewing Centre do mail order, price per metre is more expensive - I don't find the site easy to navigate or view the fabrics, but fortunately that doesn't matter to me, 'cos I can go in person.
