Over 60 Years and 3 Generations!
The 3rd generation of Sawyers, Jarret Sawyer is the
new owner of Sawyer Sewing Centre. Sawyers was established
by Jarret's grandparents, Marion and David Sawyer in 1953.
They began modestly by selling sewing machines out of the
back of David's Dry Cleaning delivery van while living in
Qualicum Beach. In 1965 they moved to Victoria and established
a small store on Fort St. I joined my parents in business
right out of school in 1969 and have been owner operator since
1976. Jarret began with our company in the early 1990's, initially
working in the repair department and eventually through all
of our various departments. I wanted Jarret to have complete and thorough knowledge of each and
every aspect of our business just like my father and mother
insisted I did when I joined.
Jarret has proven to more than capable and
I am very proud of him. Now is the time for me to retire and
let him carry on the family tradition. You never know, his
son Kieran, now getting older this month may be the next.
Congratulations Jarret and keep up the good work.
Thank you to all our loyal customers and friends
for all the memories. I hope to still be around for special
