Machine Mastery Starts Next Week

The Machine Mastery classes that come with the purchase of any sewing machine at Asheville Cotton Co. start up with class #1 again next week, Mondays at 6pm or Tuesdays at 10am. No need to sign up; just come on in if you purchased your machine here! We don't sew in class #1, so don't bring the machine this coming week, but bring it after that. If you can't make it to #1, don't worry; you can show up to class #2 or #3 in the following weeks. Call us if you have questions. Remember, these classes don't expire and you can take them as many times as you like. (Sorry, Mastery classes are not available for machines not purchased here.)
