"I just wanted to let you know what an awesome experience I had at your store this afternoon. I came in today for some help binding my first quilt, and Karen was super friendly, informative, and helpful. I felt incredibly welcome at your store. Thanks to Karen's help with squaring my quilt, pinning my binding strips the correct way, and demonstrating how to place the binding, my quilt is coming along a lot better than it would have.
Thanks so much!"

"We purchased our machine from Dennis, who was patient, intelligent, and kind — and made the whole process enjoyable!
Jade had her first class today and I tagged along; we were both so impressed with the project and your patience, intelligence, and kindness!!! You have a very special place and you are a very special lady. Thank you for a most enjoyable morning. It was so nice to hang out with you and the other ladies! We are looking forward to our next class!
It is so inspiring to come across a business like Judy's. Everyone is so personal service-oriented and it seems that they love what they do. It is a breath of fresh air, and makes you want to return — often!!!!
 
Most Sincerely, "
Rosalind and Jade San Felipe

"Judy and John are the best. I have gone to their Scotts Valley store for many years and purchased two different sewing machines. I have taken many classes and know that if I ever had a problem Judy or the staff would help. I would recommend Judy's Sewing Centers to anyone."

"My favorite place to be hands down. Judy and John have taken a lot of time to make sure their business feels like home. Everyone there treats you like you are family. They are helpful, patient, knowledgeable and fun to be around. I have been going there since the first store opened in Scotts Valley and now at 41st it just keeps getting better and better. It is my home away from home. Thank you Judy and staff for making this store such a comfortable and pleasant place to sew and shop."

"I have been taking classes at Judy's since the Scotts Valley Store. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Judy helped my husband pick out my sewing machine for a Christmas present the first year the store opened. I've been sewing ever since! I enjoy especially the "Sewing with Nina" class. However any class I've taken has been taught by an expert!
I'm looking forward to the new store!"

"I needed some sewing kit supplies for updating my simple home hand-sewing/repair kit. I thought I would see what Judy's had, since I pass the store every day, rather than driving out to Capitola. I was so surprised! Judy's had a great selection of everything I needed, at great prices! I got needles, basic threads, patches, velcro dots, hem tape... all those notions that we need, and I don't think anyone else in Santa Cruz carries! It is also a beautiful store and makes me want to learn real sewing someday."
