WHO WE ARE

Founded in 1994 by Byron & Janet Hanson (read more about our founder here) along with Vern & Lisa Hanson, A-Best Sew & Vac is one of the largest sewing, embroidery and quilting speciality stores in the U.S. We also boast a robust line of vacuum cleaners and home care products. We sell many major brands and offer an excellent assortment in a wide range of prices.

We offer frequent instructional classes and events that we like to think of more as “parties.” We have brought in many big name celebrities in the sewing world to host and teach at our events, including the likes of Kim Montagnese.

While we sell online, our bread and butter is still local, in-store sales and service. We’re #1 in customer service and the value we offer our customers. This is why we have customers that even drive from out of state to come get that little extra personal touch we can offer in-store.
