Meet Us

We have been in business since 1976. The founder, Scott Goodman, recently retired after working in this industry since 1965. The business continues under the leadership of Jennifer Anderson and Jeanette Rigali (who worked with Scott for several years and were vested in the knowledge of sewing and embroidery machines as well as vacuums.)

We embraced the challenge of business ownership with our sights set on the future.  Wanting to put our own touches in place we have added loyalty rewards and birthday coupons for our customers.  We have rearranged the store, added our own personal touches to the decor and opened up space for a larger classroom area.  We have been adding classes to our schedule for all kinds of sewing and embroidery.  We are thrilled to be back in person after two long years of only online learning and look forward to expanding our class selections and teachers as time goes forward.
 
We are excited to help you with your sewing machine choices and look forward to another 45 years of business!  Thank you to our wonderful customers that continue to support our business and we hope you continue with us on this adventure.
