About Sawyer Sewing Centre

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. Dean Sawyer joined his parents in business right out of school in 1969 and was 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."
