Cuppa Tea had our first APQS Road Show Longarm Experience...we had a few date changes due to the uncooperative weather and shipping issues...but everyone learned about all the different types of long arms that APQS has to offer.  Attendee's were able to test drive a machine or two and go home loaded with information to start or finish their journey on the road to owning a long arm machine.
 Remember that you can also come in to set up a time to rent one of the machines.  If you have attended a get your first hour FREE! Call the shop to get on the rental calendar!  509-589-1350
