Some familiar faces you will see:

Mike – Owner, customer service and Repair Technician

Mikes Mug
Mike was as a professional transport driver for most of his adult life. He has always had a nack for fixing mechanical items and problem solving so he began his journey into the sewing world by becoming a trained Repair Technician. Mike soon became very passionate about machine repair and decided that in order to be a better Repair Tech he should learn how to use the machines like his customers do, Mike is now an avid sewer and quilter. You will see Mike around the store sewing with customers, training customers on their new machines, quilting on the long arm, helping customers with their fabric choices or just laughing and joking around.
