Pfaff Ooctoberfest When you hear the words PFAFF sewing machines, does the phrase "Superior German Engineering" immediately come to mind!?!  It should, since Georg Michael Pfaff, an instrument maker by trade, made his first sewing machine and founded the G.M. Pfaff Sewing Machine factory in Kaiserslutem, Germany in 1862.  The PFAFF company started out manufacturing sewing machines for industrial use at first.  And even provided the machines used in the last Olympics.  Introducing the first PFAFF for home use in 1931.  For 152 years, the PFAFF name has been synonymous with excellence in sewing!

This year PFAFF is celebrating it's German heritage with the introduction of some new machines and software to the line up.  Visit the shop to see what's new!  It may just be your time for a new machine!

"You've Been Framed!"
2014's Web Sampler Block-Of-The-Month

Welcome to our 2014 Internet Block-of-the-Month Program. This is our gift to you for being such a loyal reader of our "As the Bobbin Winds" newsletter. As you know, the sampler block patterns for this quilt are only made available to the loyal readers of the "As the Bobbin Winds" Email newsletter.
Over the 12-month course, you will receive directions on how to construct (12) different framed blocks. They will start out easy and work their way up in difficulty as we progress throughout the year. In the last month, you will receive the directions for the final layout and finishing of this beautiful Web Sampler Quilt.
This particular project has been designed to be scrappy in nature, however, if you would like to purchase fabric to make yours, we have included suggested yardage with the first block pattern. We made our sample using batiks, but it would be beautiful and exciting to see it made up in any line of your choice...Kansas Troubles, Jo Mortons, or just some vibrant tonals would be lovely. Let your imagination be your guide. It will be sensational, no matter what fabric you choose.
