Coastal Sewing & Appliance

About Us


We began as the Singer Dealer in Hanover Center in 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. New Home was the first company to offer embroidery machines, starting with the New Home Memory Craft 8000. The 1990s brought Baby Lock sergers, sewing, quilting and embroidery machines.
 Long arm machines were added in the 2000s.


In 1988 , we relocated to CrossRoad Center for better access to the store and more space for classes.

The past 37 years have brought many advances in both sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. Memberships with the Vacuum Dealer Trade Association and the Sewing Dealer Trade Association keeps us updated on the latest products available.

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.

We stay active in community affairs. We are a drop off point for
Project Linus and Toys For Tots. You can drop off finished blanket or just fabric and supplies and we make sure they receive them.
"We sell the best and service the rest!"
