Jim & Angie Avard opened Sewing Machines Plus! in 1998 with a basic concept, to treat customers as they themselves wanted to be treated. Our success is dependent on our customer’s success. By focusing on sewing and partnering with quality suppliers, we can give our customers the highest quality possible. This is more important now than ever before. Not only have products become more complex, customer expectations are higher than ever.
We participate in national and regional trainings on operation, service and repair of machines, quilting and fabric art and machine embroidery techniques. Jim and Angie encourage their customers to step outside the usual, to experience the fun and excitement of creating unique works of art with fabric and thread.
We are a resource for customers with ALL brands of sewing and embroidery machines. Our sewing and embroidery clubs and classes are open to customers with any brand of machine.
