A unique set of custom throw pillow covers made from redesigning and piecing an existing pillow and comforter set. The client didn’t want as much of the floral print in the pillows, so these were made by piecing smaller cuts of the floral print with the gray fabric to match the entire set, and provide the personalized look the client wanted.

Servicing Vintage Sewing Machines
I cleaned and serviced this vintage Singer sewing machine, and it’s now back to performing like new. Vintage machines were made to last, and when taken care of can be passed down through multiple generations. If it’s been a long time since your machine was serviced, vintage or new, get it in before it starts having problems. Learn More
The new days and times for machine service appointments have been working out great. Saturdays, plus weekday times in the morning, afternoon, and evening, at 4 locations around Austin, so there are plenty of options to get your machine looked at.
The convenient scheduling gives you a set appointment to review your machine. If your machine can’t be fixed during the diagnostic, most machines that need servicing are returned in less than two weeks!
All brands of new and vintage domestic sewing machines and sergers.
