About Us

The Sewing Source was established in December of 1994.  We started out as a small business inside JoAnn  Fabrics in Round Lake, IL.  We started out selling only Janome sewing and embroidery machines and grew very fast.  We were in this location for 5 years and then found it necessary to move out because we needed to do more classes and we needed more space for all of our products.

We moved to our first independent location in Lake Villa on Route 83 in 1999.  We started carrying cotton fabric and more notions and more classes. 

Again we outgrew our space quickly and needed to move to a larger location.

We have over 15,000 customers at this time and we strive to be the best we can be.  We work hard to offer the best customer service we can.  We treat all of our customers like family. 

Joseph's repair business also grew and he needed more space too.  He works on more than 30 machines a month or more.  His customers are very satisfied and remark that the machines look and work better than the day they were purchased.  He does warranty his work too.
