Shepparton Sewing Centre commenced trading in October 1991 in Wyndham Street Shepparton. The goal then, as it is now, was to provide the best possible customer service in sewing machine sales, service and repair. This was also the start of the very successful association between Shepparton Sewing Centre and the Swiss sewing machine company Bernina.
In 1993, due to increased turnover and expanded stock range, the Wyndham Street store was too small, so a move to Maude Street followed, purchasing the Val Hill Sewing Centre. It is with this move Shepparton Sewing Centre also became the Goulburn Valley representative for the Pfaff and Brother brands.
In 1995 Naughtons Sewing Centre was purchased and the Janome brand was added to the excellent range of sewing machines offered.
Due to the ever changing sewing market and the recent closure of Lincraft and Naughtons fabric stores, a fabrics store was opened in High Street, Shepparton in August 2004, providing a range of good quality dress and patchwork fabric, sewing patterns, notions, threads & haberdashery.
After only a couple of years we had outgrown the High Street fabric store and a search was on for a new location.
With customer service and convenience in mind, a location with a large retail floor space, on site parking and enough room to have a dedicated class room.
So, in June of 2006 Shepparton Sewing Centre and Bargain Box Fabrics were moved into a new purpose built facility at 36 Benalla Road Shepparton our current location.
The Benalla Road store has over 60 machines on display from five of the major sewing machines manufacturers, being, Bernina, Pfaff, Janome and Brother along with a comprehensive range of sewing furniture.
We stock a large range of patchwork fabric and quilting supplies INCLUDING A LOVELY RANGE OF QUILT BACKINGS.
In 2015 we commenced an in-store QUILTING SERVICE using the new Bernina Q24 Long Arm quilting machine.
A QUILT FRAME RENTAL option is available for those who wish quilt their own quilts.
