We love to share our passion for sewing, quilting and machine embroidery 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 to make an appointment.


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

Kay Barth's Bee

This is a small group of Prairie Quilt Guild members who quilt for charity.

Clothesline Mini-Quilt - Ark City

Make this sweet mini-quilt using paper piecing and hang it in your sewing room, laundry room, or use it to decorate a little girl's room. A pinwheel border and colorful embroidery give it whimsy. If you have never tried paper piecing, this would be a fun project to start.

Join us for this quick and easy quilt class that is open to all, including beginning quilters. We've already started, but if you'd like to learn how to make this quilt, you may join us for the second class session. Be sure to sign up online so that we have enough patterns for you.

National Quilting Day is March 21 and we're celebrating with our 3rd annual Border Run Shop Hop. This year, we're expanding it to 2 days! McDonald's Sewing & Vacuum - Arkansas City teams up with Field to Fabric Quilt Company in Winfield and Beehive Quilt Shop for this event. Gather your quilting besties and run for the border to get the exclusive pattern and deals on fabrics and notions. Visit each shop to get your passport stamped and get the free pattern. There will be a prize drawing from the passports for a gift basket from each store. Don't forget to check in on Facebook in Ark City to get your free fat quarter.
