About Us

Stewart's Sewing Machines first opened its doors in 1964 in Decatur, IL. After a stint in the Army flying helicopters, Chan Stewart decided to start a second career focusing on sewing machine sales and maintenance. As times changed, he, along with daughter and co-owner Jana Wrigley, decided to open a quilt shop in Mt. Zion and opened the new store in 1996. We sadly lost Mr. Stewart in 2018, but his legacy lives on through his daughter and a wonderful staff!  

We carry several lines of quality fabrics and offer many different types of sewing machines from standard, straight-stitch machines, embroidery machines, and even sergers. In addition, we have a wide variety of quilt books and patterns as well as an extensive selection of embroidery designs.

Additionally, we carry a variety of sewing cabinets from Koala and Tailormade.

Stewart's is a factory trained and authorized service center, servicing all makes and models of sewing machines and sergers. We currently sell Babylock, Janome, Elna and Juki machines. Our repair shop is right next to our store so all service work is completed right here at our shop in Mt. Zion.

Our trained sales staff and educators are here to meet all of your sewing and quilting needs. We offer a full line of sewing and quilting classes as well as a variety of "How To" seminars.
