We have had so many requests to service other brand machines that we are now forturnate to be able to offer service on ALL Brands to you.  Danny will be starting at the Quilters Loft on Feb 2, 2010 and will work Tuesdays and Thursdays.  We are now accepting appointments for Danny's Schedule.  When you schedule an appointment for an Annual Maintenance, (yes all machines need this service), you'll be able to drop off your machine at your appointment time, and in most circumstances you will be able to wait for it.  Please call the shop, 704-662-8660, and schedule your appointment today.  When you schedule your appointment now thru February 28, 2010, you will save 30% on your cleaning service.
