Mission Statement

Preserving our quilting heritage is extremely important to me. My purpose is to present our quilting history in an informative, engaging and fun manner. I want to help owners preserve their Singer Featherweight sewing machines and keep them sewing for generations to come through education and providing quality parts, products and services for their machines.

Thank you for visiting my web site! Please come back often. -- Nova
