Sewing Vacumn and Sewing Center, aka the Bernina shop, aka “Karen’s”, has long been a fixture in Sequim. In the last year or two Karen has added a line of fabrics. It is a pleasure to visit her shop and peruse the different shades, tones, and patterns. Her batiks are always a favorite and you can never go wrong with a Hoffman. Notice I didn’t feature a picture of a sewing machine or a vacumn…but they do have them! And they have Don, the repairman. Don not only repairs sewing machines and vacumns, he also fixed the switch on my hot wax machine. When I visit a quilt shop, it’s like an artist’s date.
