Creative Sewing Machine Center -- West Columbia SC

Today is my last day in the Carolinas with a 6:05am flight out of Columbia tomorrow morning -- am I crazy, or what?

I easily found the Creative Sewing Machine Center, located on 12th Street in West Columbia. It was a foggy, foggy morning, but you don't have to look at street numbers if you look up and see this big sign!

I parked in the back parking lot -- there is tons of parking around this store -- and went directly into the roomy classroom located at the rear of the store. With all that fog outside, I was looking around for some brightness and color. I was happy to see this HUGE tote that Juanita made to carry a cutting mat and all of her class supplies. Juanita works at the store and she was telling me that she hadn't tried free motion quilting before -- she did a great job!

This is a peek into the thread room; there are many kinds of threads for all different types of sewing. This is a VERY large store with a lot of inventory whether you are looking for fabric, thread, patterns, ideas -- you name it, if it has to do with sewing, it's here!

You don't even have to leave your husband at home; that looks like quite a comfy sofa where he can relax while you browse. After you finish shopping, get a map to the stabilizer section (did I say this was a BIG store?), find your husband and take him to your next stop.....

This is the Bernina section of the store where the machines are displayed along with projects made on them. In the very front of the picture, those red machine carry cases are the brand new extra large ones designed for the Bernina 830. Lots of space to store your stuff as well as to safely bring your machine with you to class, to a retreat, to ????

What I bought: This collection of embroidery designs from HolleyBerry Collections is called "Quilter Witch" -- love it! Below is a closeup of the cover quilt using prairie points horizontally between the rows of embroidered blocks.

Cute! Cute! Had to have it!

I will do another post about this shop, probably on Sunday or Monday, when I recover from a too-early flight and jet lag. I have some great pictures of some of the quilts and embroidery samples that were in the shop.
