Originally named The Sewing Center, our store was founded in 1982
by Robert Sneeringer. Robert had worked for the Singer Sewing Machine company since 1966. Due to the closing of the Singer retail
stores, he opened his own store.
In 1995 The Sewing Center was downsized, renamed to The Sew'n Place, set up as a corporation and
Robert's son Michael was named president.
The Sew'n Place's main focus became selling quality sewing machines and quilt fabrics.
July of 2005 The Sew'n Place expanded to a 2600 square foot store where they now offer more fabrics, notions, books and sewing machines.
A larger classroom was included in this store to accommodate the growing number of classes they offer.
In July of 2010 once again,
the Sew'n Place expanded. This time to a 5200 square foot super store located on Gateway Avenue in Chambersburg. In addition to expanding
the size of the store, they also expanded the classroom space, fabric selection and the selection of books, patterns and supplies.
Sew'n Place has two sewing machine technicians, so most repairs take only about a day.
