Trish worked here the first time in 1995-96.   After finding that she was expecting her second child, she went on maternity leave... for ten years and two more children!  In 2006, she rejoined us as Sales Manager/Educator and has been here ever since! Her love of people and knowledge of sewing make her a great addition to our team.

Shawn was enjoying his pizza one afternoon in 2003 when a friend introduced him to Carl as someone looking for work. Today he is the best repair man a dealer could ask for and is fully trained certified sewing machine technician.  He also doubles as an instructor when needed!

Whitney started with us in 2016 and is a very cheerful friendly addition to our staff!  She is a thoughtful young lady and cares about her customers. Like Delaney, she also has children, four of them to be exact!  As she is learning the ropes, it is evident that she will be an asset for years to come.

SINCE 1975, AND COUNTING...

 

WE STILL BELIEVE THAT THE CUSTOMER COMES FIRST.  OUR DESIRE IS TO HELP OUR CUSTOMER HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE, FROM BUYING A NEW SEWING MACHINE TO HAVING THE OLD ONE REPAIRED.

 

  • Three to five day turn-around on repairs

  • Most parts in stock

  • New and used machines receive the same service after the sale.  Once you're our customer, you're family!
     

Any shop can sell you a machine.  At Robinson Sew & Vac, we sell you an experience.

Carl started with singer sewing company in 1975, and quickly climbed his way up in the company.  in 1975, he put down roots in Robinson, Illinois, opening his own dealership.  he still resides there today, over 42 years later!  He is very hands-on with the business and can repair a sewing machine with his eyes closed and his hands tied behind his back!

Delaney started with us in 2015 and is a very fast learner!  She is a friendly knowledgeable sales person and educator for our store. Her two adorable little ones keep her searching for new ideas and techniques to make neat things!  She has been a big help to us as our business grows!
