Vacuum Testimonial

Vanessa Crowe from the Hannibal-Quincy area drove to Ottumwa and purchased a Sebo X4 vacuum from The Sewing House.  I asked her why she drove 120 miles to purchase a vacuum.  


Vanessa replied, "I like Sebo and there is no Sebo dealer close to me.  It is easy to use around furniture.  It really deep cleans and I can seal the dirt in the bag before I take it to the trash.  It does not put dust back into the air.  It is quieter than other vacuums.  It is easy to use on stairs.  And I do not want a vacuum that looks like a popcorn popper."  Thanks, Vanessa.



The SQUEELS, a quilting group from Omaha, Nebraska, recently enjoyed a quilting retreat at The Sewing House.  They stayed in a local motel and ate meals at a friend's home.  They quilted from 9am to 9pm for two days.  Other groups have stayed in motels and ate meals in local restaurants and/or brought food to the store.  SQUEELS stands for "Scrappy, Quilting, Eating, Eating, Laughing Society."  


Bring your group to The Sewing House for a retreat.  We will help you have a great time.  Call for information.


Sharon Walker from Centerville recently purchased an elna eXcellence 780 and sewing table.  She shared the following thoughts and gave us permission to use them:  "I love the Elna 780 with the sewing table.  Now I sew at the proper height and my shoulders do not hurt.  My favorite feature is the auto presser foot lift.  This sewing machine is a great companion machine for those who own the Janome MC15000."


Editor's note:  The Janome MC15000 is Janome's Top-Of-The-Line Embroidery/Sewing combo machine.  Many 15000 owners keep it set up for embroidery and use the Elna 780 or Janome MC9400 for sewing.
