New Bernina B350 SE 

A "Do it all Machine"

Our floor model B350 SE's are on their way! There are 2 adorable faceplates to choose from this time, Hello Lovely and I Love Sewing. Bernina teamed up with the designers at Cotton + Steel and created what could become your first machine, your travel machine, or your backup machine! The 350 is a 3/4 size machine, which makes it perfect if you're an on-the-go sewist. 

What it lacks in size it does not lose in quality, the 350 SE is everything you'd expect in terms of quality from Bernina. The special editions come with full shank presser feet that clip on and off with one hand, which guarantees the most accuracy if you're looking for that perfect 1/4" seam. You'll also love the FHS, the Bernina free hand system which lets you lift your presser foot with the swing of the knee lever. This is great for when your hands are full! The machine comes fully loaded with 191 stitches. 

This modestly priced Bernina is perfect for those who started with a beginner machine and are ready for the next step. As always, all machines purchased at Daley by the Yard come with instructional classes on how to use them. Please stop by our store to today to check it out.

Advantages to shopping at a local Sew Shop 

Sewing shops today have a very hard time competing with online shops on both price and selection. However, there are many benefits to a local shop like Daley by the Yard. Personal service, same day product delivery, on site repair, new machines to test are just a few…

I believe there’s a place for local quilt shops in the current retail landscape, but there’s no denying the sewing and quilting landscape is shifting quickly and dramatically. Consumers don’t need quilt shops for what we used to need them for. They are no longer the exclusive or best source for a key element in quilt making – premium fabrics.

Then what do we need quilt shops for? What will make a shop survive and thrive through this shift?

Many of Daley by the Yard customers tell us that what brings them back to our store is NOT price, selection or even location, but the attitude and feel of the shop…We bend over backwards to make you feel welcome and not rushed. Our clients are welcomed to simply browse. We want you to feel welcomed. Remember when you visit, our store staff are wonderful: enthusiastic, knowledgeable, love to share their opinions on their likes.

What a local sewing shop has that no online shop can ever have is in-person interactions. No amount of blogging or photo sharing or video making can ever compete with the experience of one-on-one help that a knowledgeable, caring person can give you as a customer, whether that’s through a class held at the shop or just a retail purchase. The feeling you get when you’re in the shop is directly dependent on the people who work there and how they interact with you. Do you feel like you belong?

We should certainly support our local quilt shops, even if it means paying a dollar more per yard for fabric, but local quilt shops are equally responsible for embracing their customer. Please visit Daley by the Yard for a truly rewarding experience.
