What Our Customers Say
Mayhall’s is a Montrose charmer. The staff is knowledgeable and i love Louise, the instructor, who knows her stuff. Her sewing class will inspire all levels. If you want to learn to use that sewing machine in your closet – or see some of the newer systems, Mayhall’s will set you in the right direction plus it preserves all that Montrose stands for.
I love Mayhalls. I took a beginning sewing class there a few years ago and have continued taking classes ever since. The teachers are wonderful. You get so much personal attention. I have also now purchased a machine from Mayhalls and had machines serviced. The technicians really are experts. Feel so lucky I found this place.
