Q: I want to buy a sewing machine – what kind should I get?
A: We are a Pfaff Sewing Machine Dealer. There are many reasons behind the success of a brand like PFAFF®. It’s a brand with over 150 years of development behind it and a consistent presence in the marketplace. It has a special air of familiarity, security and reliable quality. Only Pfaff Sewing machines have the Integrated Dual Feed (IDT) which ensures even seams and no slippage. We encourage you to come in and test drive any of our machines before buying!
Q: Where do I get my machine fixed?
A: I recommend Gratz Sewing [link to www.gratzsewing.com/] in Plymouth, 10100 6th Ave. N. #123, Plymouth (off Hwy 55 and 169). This is a 3rd generation family owned business and I take ALL my machines there.
Q: Do you sell gift certificates?
A: Of course! They make great gifts and come in any denomination!
Q: I love your fabrics, but can’t get to the store. Can you ship fabric to me?
A: Of course! All of our fabrics are sold through our Etsy shop. The inventory is constantly rotating so check back often. We can send any amount of yardage you need, to just about anywhere!
Q: My daughter, son, mom, grandma, significant other has a birthday coming up. Do you host parties?
A: Nobody loves a sewing party more than we do! We are able to host small groups such as Girl Scout Troops, birthday parties (for all ages of sewers), sewing or quilt guilds, 4-H, Home Ec., etc. We also rent out our large, clean basement for private gatherings! Call the store for prices and to schedule your party.
Q: My girlfriends and I are looking for a fun night out, have any suggestions?
A: There’s nothing more fun then getting a group of girlfriends together for a fun-night-in. Sewtropolis is the perfect place for girlfriends to gather and get creative! Come with your projects or talk to me about project ideas – how about a “Bag Lady Party” or “Baby Shower Gifts” or “Retro Kitchen Night”…. the possibilities are endless. Give me a call to discuss your ideas and pricing.
