History

Authorized Vac and Sew is a family owned business that was established in 1975. For more than 40 years, AVS has been providing quality service, sales, and a large selection of education for the Central Valley.

  • We are an exclusive Brother, Janome, Juki, and Handi Quilter dealer with on-site factory trained technicians.
  • We offer free one-on-one classes with the purchase of every machine for the lifetime of your machine as well as a large variety of project based classes that you can find in our newsletter.
  • We believe our wide variety of classes and clubs suite a range of individuals with their sewing needs.

In addition to our major sewing brands, we carry a hand-picked selection of high end fabrics for quilting, home-dec, and garments. We also offer an extensive selection of thread from Floriani an Aurifil.

Our mission is to provide high quality products, education, and service with an emphasis on a positive atmosphere that inspires creativity and FUN!

Community Involvement

AVS understands the importance of supporting our community in which we live in. Throughout the year, AVS gives back to many different local organizations. Quilt A Difference is a reoccurring program we hold three times a year where volunteers (no quilting experience needed!) make lap quilts for children. We have donated an average of 100 quilts a year to Children’s Hospital Central California for over 3 years. Check our calendar for the current Quilt A Difference dates and join us in supporting our community.
