In addition to offering fabrics, sewing machines, and services, Hayes Sewing Machine Company also offers quality sewing classes by certified instructors.
“Visiting our store is like coming home,” said Trevor Hayes, BERNINA Dealer owner of Hayes Sewing Machine Company. “It’s a place where customers are heard and take priority. If people are treated like family, they respond well and come back to connect in a safe and friendly environment where they matter.”
The Hayes Family, Trevor and Mary Hayes, and their daughters Stephanie, Loretta and Pamela, have enjoyed taking care of the sewing needs of their customers for many years.
