Shelly Hutchinson and Sherry Hannah were colleagues in a sewing shop when they started thinking about striking out on their own.

With the older and more frugal generation needing an accessible sewing shop to repair their clothes and the younger generation not learning how to sew on a button in school, they figured Port Arthur could use their services. Having found the perfect spot on Bay Street, the two left their jobs and started their own business. 

The Sewing Shop opened on April 10, 2012, and it has stayed busy since then. They do everything from hemming pants, letting out seams and replacing zippers to custom orders.

Looking around the shop and describing their equipment, it is clear they thoroughly love their profession and their equipment. They’ve been doing it for decades (Hutchinson started using a sewing machine when she was four and Hannah says she was eight when she put a needle through her finger for the first time) and it truly seems there is nothing these two consummate professionals cannot do.
