We had a visit from our Pfaff Regional Sales Representative, Sandy Morry, and she surprised us with the #1 Dealer Award 2014 for Ontario! 

Of course, we feel very honoured to receive this recognition, but we have to share the credit. First of all, Pfaff makes a line of products that we love and love to promote, with quality second to none. And our customers (that's you!) know that sewing on a Pfaff is an exceptional experience, one to which they are extremely loyal. 

On behalf of Pfaff and ourselves, thank you for your continued support. Drop by to see your plaque!
