About Us

Bill Fose started 35th Ave Sew and Vac over 30 years ago with one store located on the northwest corner of 35th Avenue and Northern in Phoenix, Arizona.

What began as a vacuum sales and repair shop has grown into one of the largest independent sewing machine store and fabric business in the southwest, supplying fabric to customers across the U.S. and around the world.

35th Ave Sew and Vac is an authorized dealer of Baby Lock, BERNINA, Husqvarna Viking, Pfaff and Elna machines for quilting, embroidery and sewing as well as long-arm quilters. We offer a wide variety of classes and events to inspire you.

Whether it's a small, hand-held vac or a whole house unit, 35th Ave Sew and Vac has the right product to fit your needs. We are dealers for Miele, Sebo, Riccar, Dyson and Beam.

35th Ave Sew and Vac remains family-owned and operated with Bill, his wife Rita, daughter Jacquelyn and son John all working in the business. We are Your One Stop Shop for all your quilting, embroidery and sewing needs.

There are currently three locations in Phoenix, Chandler and El Mirage, along with an extensive online customer base.
