Family owned and operated by John and Ann Rich. The business began in 1973 as an in-home sewing machine repair business. Today, the business has two retail locations, one in Salem and the other in Albany, Oregon. We also operate a large warehouse that supports both of the retail locations.
Rich’s Sewing & Vacuum is a factory authorized dealer for Babylock, BERNINA, Elna and Pfaff sewing machines. We offer sewing, quilting and embroidery machines as well as mid-arm and long-arm quilting machines. Rich’s offers expert sewing machine service and repair for all of these brands and most others.
We here at Rich’s are very committed to sewing education. We offer an on-going learning program called Inspirations. In addition, we offer many specialty sewing classes, sewing clubs as well as larger sewing events. These events often feature nationally-known sewing personalities.
Occasionally we have to stop sewing and clean up our shop. You know the saying, “Sewing Forever, Housework Whenever”…well, we often abide by that adage. When we do spruce up the store, we utilize one of several high-quality vacuum brands that we carry here at Rich’s. If you stop in either one of our stores, you can choose from the Miele, Sebo or Simplicity vacuum lines. At Rich’s we service every brand that we sell as well as most other national brands. We stock a large selection on vacuum parts, bags, filters and accessories. If we don’t have what you need, we are happy to find it and special order if for you.
