Owner, Barbara Daigle, believes that sewing is a healing craft and thoroughly enjoys sharing her passion for stitching with her customers. Sew Orchid Design is founded on her belief that community participation is key to a well rounded life. She strives to maintain a welcoming and supportive store atmosphere that fosters relaxation and camaraderie. In fact, visitors and locals are encouraged to drop by the store, at 316 Main St., for a warm cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa (on us of course), and some friendly conversation.
When customers need assistance, our enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff members are always on hand to answer questions, provide expert product advice, or make suggestions on new project ideas, upcoming classes, or helpful sewing techniques. We also welcome the opportunity to educate youth and inspire them to embrace sewing as a medium for bringing their creative ideas to life!
