Allan’s Sewing Machine Service About Us

You will find us alongside the picturesque banks of the mighty Columbia River in the City of Trail, situated in the West Kootenays region of British Columbia, Canada.

Originally began as a home based business during the recession of the 1980’s, ( I had  just graduated college in automotive and heavy duty mechanics). I used my new found skills and applied them to my previous work experience repairing sewing machines and typewriters and began “Allan’s Sewing Machine Service”.  

I did strictly sewing machine sales and service. Customers requested that I broaden my scope and start to carry fabrics and notions. This required a store front, so I weighed the pros and cons.

It began with basic sewing notions, polyester prints and fleeces, and as you can see from photos on our home page, we have grown from a few basic polyester prints to a full range of high quality cottons, and more notions than I care to count. We Are Now Celebrating 35 Years In Business.

Thank You For Your Interest.
