Sew-er’s Choice Celebrating 25 Years

FREDONIA – The place to receive sewing machine and vacuum cleaner sales and service for 25 years in Fredonia has been Sew-er’s Choice.

The business, which is located along Route 60, Fredonia, next to Lucky Lanes, sells Brother sewing machines and Miele, Oreck and Panasonic vacuum cleaners.

“We fix all model sewing machines,” said Ken Mekus, Sew-er’s Choice owner with his wife, Shirley Himebaugh. “We’re honest to a fault. People trust us to be honest, and we are. If you treat customers right they come back to you.”

Mekus said his wife’s family for many years were know for providing sewing machine sales and service.

“She has been raised with sewing in her blood,” Mekus said. “She can fix everything. If she can’t fix it, it is not fixable.”

Mekus said people can learn how to use their new sewing machine when they buy it at Sew-er’s Choice. Mekus said providing quality service to all customers is the key to staying in business.

“It is great to hear customers come in and say they have heard about us from another customer,” he said.

Recently, the business has consolidated into its Fredonia location. For 13 years, the business also had a Lakewood location along Fairmount Avenue. Mekus said south county residents can still receive the same great service and equipment from the shop in Fredonia.

Sew-er’s Choice is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 672-6900.
