Hobbysew Celebrates 20 years at Figtree Grove

In 2004, Hobbysew opened in-centre offering high-quality 100% cotton fabrics, craft supplies, wool, yarn, embroidery supplies and haberdashery. 

Starting with only a couple of sewing machines they now have several big brand machines for just about every sewing job you can think of. They stock Janome, Brother, Bernina, Handi Quilter, Singer, Husqvarna Viking, and most recently added Juki, a brand for serious sewers. 

Nicole, the current store manager, has worked at Hobbysew since the first year of operation. Working her way up from sales assistant to store manager 4 years ago. 

Working at Hobbysew has its perks for hobbyists like Nicole, she loves all things sewing whether it’s on a machine or by hand, and she loves embroidery, crocheting and anything crafty.

Being around all things craft makes me happy and the people that love to craft tend to have a very generous and kind nature,”

It’s fabulous to see what people create and their want to learn and share,” she said.

Over the years Nicole has seen customers bond over classes and the latest release of a state-of-the-art sewing machine, but she also shared what customers come back to the store for the most.

Our most popular products are fabric, sewing supplies and machines of course,” she said.
