Specials, Clearance, and Facelifts

January 15, 2022
Have you been in either of our stores lately? Over the last few months they’ve both received a facelift! It’s always nice to move things around and give our spaces a fresh look. This time, we did a little more than that…and we love the results!


Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Tampa Store got a new BERNINA display area. Getting it here and set up was a team effort involving an overnight road trip, several days of moving things, installation, and rearranging the store. It looks amazing, and it fits in the corner so well it looks like it’s always been there.

In making room for the new display, everything in that corner of the store had to be moved. Kelly and Malya took charge and moved everything…and we mean everything! Threads, notions, embroidery designs, and even the fabric and fat quarter shelves. The time and planning paid off with a new look and feel in the store just in time for the new year.

There were many parts...
... many, many parts!
It took a village, er, the whole team to get 'er done.
The After! Nicely Done Team Tampa!

When the Tampa store finished the installation and overhaul, Team Clearwater took on a small “DE-construction” project. We’ve always felt a bit…cramped back by the cutting table, thanks to that wall that created the fat quarter nook. Just after the New Year, a plan was formed.

To open up the space, the partial wall that separated the fat quarter area from the fabric was removed. WOW! The difference is night and day. It’s now so open and inviting now that it’s a pleasure to take fabric to the cutting table! Allen, Darcie and Mike did a great job de-constructing, moving, shifting and getting it just perfect. (Mike really is a jack of all trades, and no worries, out projects didn’t take time away from servicing machines!)

See that dividing wall on the right of the fat quarters?

...piece by piece...
...piece by piece...
by piece! 
After! Great Job Team Clearwater!


Have you heard about all those boats floating around the LA and Long Beach ports? Slowly but surely the machines and stock we ordered so, so long ago are making their way through customs and hitching a ride east. This is great news for anyone that’s been waiting (very patiently, and we thank you!) for machines and other supplies to arrive.

We are expecting a good amount of back-ordered product to arrive in the next few months. Because we’ve had product trickling in recently, we need to make room for what’s coming.

January is BERNINA Clearance Sale month. We have a variety of select machines priced to sell to make room for the new machines heading our way. To sweeten the deal, they have great 0% financing offers for several price points* that run through the end of February.

We also have a variety of select Baby Lock Machines available with special pricing. January 14-18, 2022, Baby Lock has a couple great 0% financing offers* also. Now’s the time for that multi-needle, Solaris, serger, or whatever Baby Lock you’ve been eyeing.

*0% financing on approved credit, contact one of the stores for details.

Did you know you can apply for financing without coming into the store? Simply visit our Financing page and choose the option that’s best for you. When you decide to buy, bring in your account number and we’ll take care of the rest!

We’ve had many people excited about the new Kimberbell program. Right now we’ve got a great deal available. You can purchase the full year, plus bonus design, now through January 20, 2020 at a 25% savings! When you purchase this one-year membership, we will include exclusive how-to videos and a discount card for Kimberbell products through the end of the year. Does that sound enticing? Click below for complete details. This deal ends at 11:59 PM EST on January 20, 2022. After that, you can purchase each month’s design from our website or our Tampa and Clearwater stores for $10 each.
The new Camont line from Rifle Paper Co. has shipped and will be arriving at the Tampa store soon! Included in our order of Camont are selections from Menagerie Garden, Poppy Fields, Lemon Grove, Wildwood and Menagerie Silhouette. We also will be receiving Primavera Cabana Stripe in two colors, and Rifle Paper Co. Tapestry in two colors.

It’s been quite a while since we’ve been able to get our hands on new Rifle Paper Co. fabric, and we’re super excited! Keep an eye on the What’s New section of our website, we’ll have them up soon and will begin taking pre-orders online.

Have a great week!
