What's New with Pfaff?
Creekside Quilting is more than happy to order any Pfaff sewing machine for you, yet we do not keep a stock of sewing/embroidery machines in the store. On any machines we order for our customers, we require a 50% non-refundable down payment. We do not have demo machines of the Pfaff Hobbylock 2.0 or the Smarter Machines in the store, but we can order you one. It usually takes Pfaff a week to send us a machine, and then we have our technician, Steven Rounds, check the machines the next Wednesday he is in our store.

All class fees go straight to the instructor. Due to the time each teacher puts into preparing for a class, no refunds will be made for canceling a class within one week of the class date. In the same respect, should we need to cancel a class due to not meeting the minimum amount of students, we will cancel the class one week prior class date and offer a full refund or a class credit toward another class.
