Surger Spectacular 

 
The Serger Spectacular event coming this Columbus Day weekend, so the race is on to get signups! There is still limited space to sign up. 
 
WHO: YOU! This workshop is for all people and skill levels. You don't even need to own a serger, or sewing machine for that matter!
WHAT: A 3 Day workshop on the Serger. We'll cover threading, tips, techniques, troubleshooting, and theory. You'll work hands-on a serger, which we'll provide for you, and put together your very own "serger spectacular reference library" full of samples and step-by-step instructions. If you do have a serger of your own at home, this binder will be an invaluable resource for you!

The Baby Lock Triumph 

I was so excited to see the new Baby Lock Triumph serger at Baby Lock Tech! I flew down to St. Louis and received training on this new beauty, it's so easy to use! Many of you had seen the Ovation in action at one of our serger spectaculars, but the new Triumph just takes the cake. In addition to a knee lift, speed control, space to the right of the needle, and non-sequential, auto-threading loopers - there is now an automatic needle threader. HALLELUJAH. How much easier could it get? This machine removes every inch of possible trauma that can come with working with a serger, and allows you more time to get down to business!

If you haven't signed up for our Serger Spectacular yet, you absolutely must! We have limited space available, and you do not want to miss this. The Triumph will be featured at this event. You'll be able to see this machine and try it hands-on. This is just so exciting. Whether you're into sewing clothes, quilts, home dec, or crafts - you need one of these machines in your life. A sewing machine just can't do what a serger can. This 3 day event is hands-on, and we provide the machines, materials, and even breakfast, coffee, lunch, and snacks! All you need to do is bring yourself. The cost of this workshop is $249, but early birds only pay $199. Sign up now and reserve your spot!

News at our Daley By The Yard 

I hear a lot of rumors from day to day here at Daley by the Yard. Some of them are fun, like that I'm pregnant (sorry to disappoint, but I'm not!) but sometimes they aren't, like that I'm going out of business. My husband and I definitely have human babies on the brain, but for the time being, my baby is this business. Daley by the Yard isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

About a year ago, we made the decision to change the mission of Daley by the Yard. At the time, we were one year into a long term lease of a larger space as we were watching fabric shops around us closing. We decided to put our focus onto what we believe is our strength - sewing machine sales, repair, and classes. With that, we had a big fabric sale and moved into a smaller space here in the same building at 481 Great Road in Acton, Mass.

So here we are today! We've transitioned into a sewing machine shop, like we wanted to. We started carrying Baby Lock sewing machines and sergers, which are the perfect complement to BERNINA, which we've carried since day one of opening in 2012. It may look like we've downsized, but in reality, we've grown! It's true, we no longer sell yarn, and our fabric and notions are dwindling down - but it's been a conscious decision to no longer restock them. We've repurposed the space they used to be in to double the size of our repair shop, to increase our amount of floor models for folks to learn about and try, and to bring in educators to teach fabulous workshops. This better fits our mission to provide our customers with the best sewing machine products, education, and service.

What you may not have known, is that over the last year, we've opened a new business, Daley Vapor, which has two locations, one in Pepperell and one in North Reading. We also still have Daley Landscaping. As you can imagine, this all keeps me pretty busy! Jacki is no longer with us to cover Daley by the Yard on Tuesday, but all the tasks I need to accomplish on Tuesday remain - so we've made the decision to be closed on Tuesday, which is a historically slow day.

I wanted to personally address and squash this rumor. 2017 is shaping up to be our best year yet and we're so excited to be moving into the Fall and for all of the exciting new machines and products coming out of BERNINA and Baby Lock. We've also got Karen Clancy coming out to teach a 3 day serger workshop, and we cannot wait to show you Baby Lock's newest serger.
