We love to share our passion for sewing, quilting and machine embroidery with you.  Please call to set up your owners class.  Arkansas City - 620-441-0939 or Wichita - 316-358-9146   We follow Sedgwick County guidelines regarding social distancing and mask wearing.  Currently, masks are required for classes in both stores.

We are developing a series of video classes on our YouTube channel.  Please check there for owners classes for some machines and other helpful videos and tutorials on sewing and embroidery.

Machine Owners Classes
We offer free owners classes to help you get the most out of your new machine. Please bring your machine and everything that came with it, your owner's manual, scissors, and thread to your class unless is it an embroidery machine.  If you purchased an embroidery machine, you will receive two classes.  Bring your embroidery arm and supplies to the second class.

Software Owners Classes
Premier +2 software owners class handouts are below, organized by Mac and Windows versions.  Please complete these classes at home before attending software classes in the store.  If you would like help completing them, please call to set up your one-on-one classes.  If you purchased the software from McDonald's Sewing & Vacuum, there is no charge for these owners classes.  If you purchased your software elsewhere, one-on-one classes are $29 per class.


















Calendar


Beginning Quilting - Yellow Brick Road

Grab a handful of fat quarters, and you're on the road to a fast and fun quilt! This super simple quilt is rotary cut and strip pieced ... it just looks like you emptied out the scrapbag. We will make the baby sized quilt 48" x 57". It will not have an inner border like the small red border in the picture. There will be more than one class session required to complete this quilt. This registration includes two 2-hour class sessions. More will be scheduled later with class participants as needed. You will start the quilt in class and will continue to work on it on your own at home.
