Did you see it?
Staff Writer Kay Richardson from The Columbian Newspaper did a great write up this past week, featuring our very own General Manager, Gary Rael, here at the House of Sewing Machines and Vacuums in Vancouver WA. Here’s some highlights from the article:

“Gary Rael has seen a resurgence of interest in sewing locally over the past 10 years. This may be why he services or repairs 150 sewing machines on average each month at his shop in Hazel Dell. Rael also travels several times a year to industry conferences to learn the ins and outs of manufacturers’ new models, actually deconstructing, then reassembling them so he can help sewing enthusiasts keep doing what they love to do. Whether the machines are new state-of-the-art models for die-hard quilters or vintage reconditioned ones for beginners, Rael has worked on most types in his 25 years on the job. “There are a lot of machines out there,” he says. “The flow never stops.”
