Items over $50 and Sewing Machines and Sergers

December 20, 2016

We are in the final week before Christmas and like most of you, are trying to get everything done. For those of us that live in the Lower Mainland, we have seen snow covered streets in some areas and green grass in others. Today the sun is out and the snow is slowly melting, traffic to and from work is lighter, but the streets and parking lots at all the major Malls is crazy with traffic. My final installment in ideas for Christmas come in the more than $50 category and finally the big ticket items “Sewing Machines”!!! We have so many great notions and storage items for anyone that sews or quilts or embroiders on your list, but they will probably have all those great gadgets to help with everyday projects. Why not get them that fabulous iron to take to class, or the Oliso Smart iron which makes ironing a pleasure or a larger cutting or rotating mat. We tend to not want to spend the bigger dollars on ourselves, but deep down would love to receive them as a gift. I think the item I would LOVE to receive this year as a gift are the 9″ KAI cutting shears!! I do a lot of garment sewing, especially with finer fabrics and these scissors would be an excellent addition to my sewing basket. Might have to put those in my letter to Santa!!


I have saved the biggest and best items for last. Do you have or do you know anyone that is in the market for a new sewing machine this Christmas? We have so many machines to choose from and in every price range as well. We not only would like to sell you a machine, but we care about your success with that machine. With every machine sale we offer one on one instruction in order for you to get to know and master the machine. These lessons are usually about one hour in length and are available during the first year of you owning a machine purchased from A Great Notion!! All you have to do is give us a call, set up an appointment, and you will be on the road to mastering your machine.

We also offer other classes, depending on which make and model of machine you purchase from us. We offer “Master” classes, which we go over everything from threading, to maintenance to what all those feet are used for. We offer sewing and embroidery clubs; a monthly 2-hour class getting to know even more about your machine, even doing a little project in class, but most of all we offer our in house expertise from our staff. We have staff that are experts in the machines that we sell, and above all else, we want you to succeed with your machine and use it to its full capabilities.

We sell Baby Lock, Bernina, Husqvarna and Elna machines at our Surrey/Langley location and at our Abbotsford location we sell Baby Lock, Bernina, Husqvarna and Pfaff.

Here is just a small picture of some of the amazing machines we have to offer.

We even have a Long Arm quilting machine with frame and software just waiting for a new home!! Why not surprise that special someone with a new machine!!

Wishing you all the PEACE, LOVE and JOY this season has to offer!!

Until next time,
