Winston’s Sewing Center
Since Winston’s Sewing Center began dispensing quilting and needlepoint supplies in 1939, there have been quite a few innovations in the craft. That’s especially true with sewing machines. The storefront has a sizeable collection of up-to-date models that have pinpoint accuracy and programmable embroidery. These modern devices sit amid the vast stock of traditional craft supplies, including yards of luxuriant fabrics for handcrafting projects. The center also serves as just a quiet, comfortable place to sew, whether you want to do that in as part of a class, in a sociable club, or within a yarn cocoon.
