How a Sewing Center Can Help You Unleash Your Inner Artist

Whitlocks Sewing Center is a family-owned business that has been serving the sewing and vacuum needs of the Salem community since 1952. The company was founded by John Whitlock, who was a sewing machine repairman at the time. Over the years, they expanded to include vacuum cleaner repair and sales, as well as a wide variety of new and used sewing and embroidery machines. In 2023 Whitlocks Sewing Center left their downtown location behind and moved into our neighborhood

Today, Whitlocks is known for its high-quality products, knowledgeable staff, and exceptional customer service.
