We began as the Singer Dealer in Wilmington's Hanover Center in November 1981. At the time, we carried only Singer sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. We quickly added ceiling fans and more brands of vacuum cleaners. In the mid 80's, New Home sewing machines were introduced. We were the first store in the coastal area to offer embroidery machines, starting with the New Home Memory Craft 8000. The 1990s brought Baby Lock sergers, sewing, quilting and embroidery machines.
We relocated to CrossRoad Center to allow more space for classes and parking.
Over the past 36 years we have seen many advances in both sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. Our memberships with the Vacuum Dealer Trade Association and the Sewing Dealer Trade Association keeps us updated on the latest products we can offer you.
We pride ourselves in our training. We try to bring in at least 2 outside educators and events each year to go along with our own training and classes. No matter when you bought your sewing machine or vacuum cleaner from us, we will always be here to help you with it.
Our goal at Coastal Sewing & Appliance is to have a knowledgeable, highly trained staff that is passionate about helping you select and learn how to use the products that best suit your lifestyle and budget.
