Where to go now…

(Updated March 7th, 2019)

Welcome and thank you for stopping by our page. As you can see from the page title, you have reached the Sew Etc store “now closed” page. On October 30, 2018 we announced that we would be closing our store. On November 24th, 2018 the store had its final retail sales day. We created this page as a way to help customers find new homes and new solutions for all their sewing needs. We will continue to update this page whenever something new arises (look for the updated date tags), and hope to have it up for 6 – 12 months.

Our main email – info@sewetc.ca – we also hope to have up for the same duration, and will work to monitor and answer emails every 14 days, but sometimes it may be longer.

Please use the resources on this page to help with any timely challenges or needs you may have.

Thanks once again to all our customers for 26 wonderful years of fun and creativity.
