Store closing!!

Dear friends,

Yes, after 29 years, we are sad to announce this, but SEW for IT! is closing.

It has been a long run, and this has nothing to do with covid, but the time has come.  We are retiring now after our second career.

Retirement day is coming closer and it is time for us to start clearing our shelves at bargain prices. Our fashion fabric table has hundreds of meters of fabric suitable for garment construction. At these prices, you can make a dress, pants or a jacket for just $8.95! Read on to see what else is on sale. We have to clear the store to the walls by September 30! Please drop in for a look around! Happy sewing!

This will be in person shopping only.

Customers must keep a distance of 2 meters away from others. Customers must wear a mask that properly covers both the nose and mouth and must sanitize their hands at the door.

Also note that due to the circumstances, we are no longer selling machines, taking machines in for servicing, or offering classes.

For information or assistance, please call us at 613-820-2201.  If we are too busy, we may have to call you back.

Betty & Ed.
