Earth Day Sale


To celebrate Earth Day, all digital prints are 25% off all week. You can purchase online or in either store. Sale goes from 4/22-4/27.


Why digital prints?. Traditional printing generates more chemical waste and physical waste than digital printing. Therefore, in addition to its high quality and reliability, digital printing also has an eco-friendly component. Compared to traditional printing methods digital printing saves energy & reduces your carbon footprint.


According to the World Economic Forum, digital fabric printing methods produce no pollutants or toxic fumes, and reduce waste.


At Marie's, our over 100 digital prints come in a variety of themes such as nature, sewing, floral, holiday and more.


You can click the images to check these out on our website.

April is National Serger Month!


Come into either store and try out our Sergers, Coverstitch and Overlock models.


A serger and an overlocker are different names for the same machine. Americans generally refer to these as sergers, and nearly everyone else refers to them as overlockers. A serger performs an overlocking stitch, which is sort of like knitting more than sewing.


A coverstitch machine is a specialized machine that is used for producing ornamental hems on knit materials, whereas a serger is a multipurpose machine that can be used to create strong, finished seams, hems, ruffles, and gathers on woven fabric.
