Dear Sewtime Friends,
We have a big announcement about Sewtime that is both very exciting and very emotional for
us. As you may know, our sewing business has been my life’s work, passion, and
commitment, since I was a nine-year-old girl helping customers in my father’s sewing store, in
Richmond Hill, Queens. Over the years, I’ve had the honor and privilege of being part of an
incredible creative community, meeting so many wonderful people, and watching the sewing
industry grow in so many ways.
The time has come for Michael and I to retire, and spend more time with our grandchildren.
We had very high standards in finding someone to take over, because our customers are very
important to us. It was going to be no easy feat to find someone with the industry knowledge,
years of experience, and a passion for customer service that you’ve come to find at Sewtime.
We realized that that person was closer than we thought! It is
with great pleasure that we share that we have handed the Sewtime reins to Steve Gruber (owner of Sew Right Sewing
We are very excited that Steve is the new owner of
Sewtime. Steve is super friendly, honest and knowledgeable. He
is the right person to take over and continue Sewtime’s
dedication to offering our customers only the best products,
prices, service and classes. He has over 25 years of sewing
machine business experience and we are thrilled to have him as a
member of the Sewtime family.
Please know that nothing will change for our customers on warranties from all previous,
present and future sales and repairs. All gift cards and deposits will be honored. All classes
will continue, with many more being added, including major educational events.
Starting November 2, 2019, our Sewtime Oakland Garden location customers will be taken
care of by Steve Gruber at 223-20 Union Turnpike, Bayside, Queens, New York, 11364. The
Sewtime Westbury location will also be operated by Steve. Please pardon our appearance
during this transition period.
The same wonderful staff will be working with Steve, and I will still be around lending my
help and support in any way I can to insure a smooth transition.
We are very happy that the Sewtime story can continue under Steve’s watch, and knowing that
our customers will be cared for means everything to us.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for being part of the Sewtime Family! I cherish so
many memories and moments, and wish you all the best!
Your Friend in Sewing,
