Getting Cleaned up for the Holidays!

Sweater season is coming up and it is time to pull those heavier clothes out. Sometimes they come with pills and fuzz that make your favorite sweater look aged and worn. Pills are caused by wearing rather than washing and occur in areas of friction. This is why fibers tend to loosen and form little balls that appear in the interior of pant legs, where arms rub along sides, and where bag straps rub shoulders. The Laundress Sweater Stone safely removes pills, lint, and fuzz balls. Follow this link to learn more....

When you have pets their fur is always around. Riccar has come up with a tool made just for removing the hair. Best of all, Fur Get It automatically cleans itself.

Cathy's Sew & Vac has been a family owned and operated business located in Chico, California for over 35 years. We recently moved into a bigger and better location to better serve all of our customers, from Redding and Red Bluff to Yuba City and Marysville. Now we can offer more than just sewing machines and vacuums. And on Valentines Day of 2012 Cathy’s was thrilled to bring Honey Run Quilters and all that entails into our store. We invite everyone in to come and visit!
