Everything’s different these days. We’re trying our best to help you shop remotely in ways that are new to us, and we’re doing it with a very limited number of staff. It’s all a learning process, and we’re very happy that we’re in a position to do it. But we’re also learning that we have to do some things differently.
Due to the high number of orders that are coming in, we’re having to implement the following policies and procedures:
1. Please phone us. We'll discuss your issues and fill out a work order for your machine;
2. Thoroughly swab off your machine with disinfectant, bring it to our door, and put it on the table;
3. Hold up a sign with your name on it and back away at least two metres;
4. We will take your machine and leave a claim check on the table for you;
5. When the work is completed, we will phone for payment;
6. Come to the door and show us your name and claim check;
7. We'll put your machine (which will have been swabbed) on the table for you.
Carting your machine back and forth to classes can be a pain -- literally. Lighten the load with Pfaff's fabulous little passport 3.0!
Weighing just over 6 kg, it's lightweight and compact, making it a perfect travel machine. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice features -- the passport has Pfaff's famous IDT dual-feed system, 100 stitches, full electronic functions, built-in thread snips, and it takes all of your standard Pfaff feet.
MACHINES IN THE CLASSROOM!
Often*, when you attend a class at Quilty Pleasures, you have the option of borrowing a classroom machine instead of bringing your own. This not only makes travelling to class easier for you, it also allows you to see what's new in the world of machines.
The Pfaff quilt expression 720 offers lots of light, lots of throat area, and the incomparable IDT dual-feed system. From the top of the hugely popular expression series, it has all the features you'll learn to love while being user-friendly and amazingly easy to operate. We have it set up in a Crafty Table, too, so you can be really comfy.
*Because of the amount of homework involved, we don't recommend using a classroom machine for Quilting I. For that class, it's better to bring your own machine with you. That way, the teacher can help you with any issues that arise. However, if you'd like to buy a new machine, that's still an option!

So easy to be so connected!
If you've never made one before, a word of explanation: These are small baby quilts that are placed in the neonatal incubators and bassinets, so the size is restricted to between 22" x 22" and 24" x 24". Their small size also makes them perfect for testing block patterns, busting your stash, and practicing free-motion quilting.
Keeping in mind the intended recipients are newborns, please aim for cute and cheerful, using only 100% cotton or flannel in the top and backing, and 100% cotton thread for the construction and quilting. Cuddle quilts are typically sent home with the babies who use them, so there is a constant demand for them.
Thanks very much. Your donations will be gratefully appreciated!
We can special-order products for you!
It happens all the time: You're reading someone's blog and they recommend a pattern, book, notion, or other item that you'd really like to have. Only trouble is, either they don't sell it or you don't want to order it from them because of the exchange rate, shipping costs, Customs issues, whatever.
Let us deal with it! We can usually order these products from our suppliers, and all of the hassles are taken care of. No fuss, no muss, and your order comes right to the store and into your hands.
We try our best to offer classes that we think will appeal, but we are always open to suggestions.
If there is a class that you would like to take but we aren't offering, just let us know. And if you have a group of friends who would like to take a class together, we can arrange that, too.
Happy to help.
