Dear Sew Creative Friends,


  Wow, 2017 is here and I can hardly believe this will be my year of retirement. This was a very hard decision. I have tried to fight the fight of change even though it is inevitable.  I wish I could stop the clock, but a lot of you know people who have had to retire from one of Peoria’s Biggest Employers, even when it was not exactly their timing.  I, like everyone else, must make this tough decision considering many factors. I wish selling the shop was possible, but in these uncertain times that option just fell short. Retirement will allow me the freedom to find a new and exciting mountain to climb. I also plan to spend more time with my family and two little granddaughters that are growing up too fast. I may even become a student again. You know what they say when one door closes another one opens.

Sew Creative began in June of 2000 and we have had 16 years of  wonderful customers, with much success and weathered many storms both from the economy and of a personal nature. Most of you know I have been the brains behind this from A-Z and my husband was not involved in the day to day operation. His support was still major. So, alone at this stage of life, I have decided to liquidate the dealership with BERNINA by March 31. I will continue to sell the rest of the shops inventory with a reduced schedule. Keeping everyone posted on dates and how long the Retirement Sale will last  will be via email and our web site. That being said I will have all BERNINA FLOOR MODELS  and Accessories ON SALE 25% off starting Feb 7th 2017. Other merchandise will be 25-50% off. (the discounted area downstairs will be increasing and is 50%) All sales will be final and I will try to get all new machine owners their classes before closing. I will continue to  do repairs and service through the end of April, and will keep you informed as to when machines will need to be picked up. Please come in and shop the great selections of fabrics, kits, embroidery supply’s notions, machines and select sewing furniture. Remember the early bird gets the worm.

Sincerely, Peggy
