We are happy to share the joy of sewing, quilting, and embroidering with you.

Owners Classes
We offer free owners classes to help you get the most out of your new machine. Please bring your machine and some thread to your class.  We want to make sure it is operating properly for you.  If you purchased an embroidery machine, you will receive two classes.  Please bring your embroidery arm and supplies to the second class.

We offer one-on-one lessons for beginning sewers and quilters.  If you would like to learn how to sew, please call us or email mcdonaldssewing@att.net and make an appointment with Dalene.


We also offer quilting, sewing, embroidery, and software classes that help you go beyond the basics. So that we may be prepared, please pre-register for classes.  You  may pre-register online, call, or stop by the store.
