Sharman's Sewing Center is proud to be celebrating its 30th Anniversary in East Texas. In 1984 Richard and Sharman Dorsey opened Sharman's Sewing Center in Longview, Texas with 900 square feet, a few bolts of fabric, Pfaff sewing machines, and a commitment to customer service and education.
The mission for Sharman's Sewing Center was to provide the East Texas area with a unique and creative sewing center offering the best quality sewing machines, serger/overlock machines, a large selection of sewing furniture (cabinets, chairs and lighting) and to maintain professionally trained service technicians, sales associates and educational staff.
Sharman’s Sewing Center - Longview
moved to a new location in September 2012 after 27 1/2 years and now has more than 10 times the space than the original store for housing Baby Lock, Brother and Pfaff sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, the best quilting fabrics, books, patterns, sewing, quilting and embroidery threads, plus unique sewing, quilting and embroidery notions. Visit our "Quilt shop" within Sharman's to view the latest in 100% cotton fabrics from our wonderful fabric vendors; Moda, RJR, Northcott, Riley Blake, Benartex; just to name a few!
In 1996, Sharman's Sewing Center - Tyler was opened at 6005 S. Broadway. The staff at both locations invite you to stop by and enjoy the quality fabrics from top designers or come sit for a demonstration on one of our great Pfaff, Baby Lock, Brother sewing machines, sergers, embroidery or quilting machines.
Sharman’s books, patterns and kit selection will also tempt and entice you to begin a new project. Since the selection changes and grows weekly, you probably will want to visit often. If unique notions and threads are your passion, check out what's new in Notions and/or Embroidery Supplies.
Sharman has a passion for thread so both stores stock a huge variety of quality sewing, quilting and embroidery threads. Sharman's Sewing Center is your Authorized Baby Lock, Brother and Pfaff dealer with locations in Longview and Tyler, Texas. Our staff at both stores have certification in Baby Lock Designer's Gallery and MasterWorks software as well as Pfaff 5D Embroidery Software. Our In-house service technicians are factory trained and certified by Pfaff and Baby Lock.
We are also proud of our staff at Sharman's. Most of our staff, including both full-time and part-time employees can boast of 8 years to over 22 years of service at Sharman's!
Sharman's has had the great privilege to host many national teachers such as Nancy Zieman, Jenny Haskins, Hope Yoder, etc. We are especially excited to be hosting Martha Pullen's Love of Sewing Retreat, April 24th thru April 26th, 2014 sponsored by BabyLock, USA.
We all feel it is a great privilege to serve the sewing, embroidery and quilting enthusiast in East Texas........ where creativity is a lifestyle.
