Welcome to The Top Stitch! I've been sewing for over 40 years with experience in tailoring, home decor, craft sewing and quilting. In 2007, I opened my shop offering sewing lessons, unique modern fabrics, Janome and Brother sewing machine sales and service. In that time I've taught over 900 customers to sew! Whether you are looking to learn to sew, improve your skills, interested in fashion sewing, quilting, machine embroidery or to just be inspired, The Top Stitch is your place.
If you are a DIY and want to learn more about fashion sewing, quilting, machine embroidery or using your serger, then The Top Stitch is your place. Each month classes are offered on fit and fashion, based on the Palmer/Pletsch method of fit, machine embroidery, quilting and sewing techniques. Whether you're a beginner or a confident sewer, I have classes for all ranges of skill levels. For a complete list of upcoming classes, stop into The Top Stitch.
