After nearly  fifty long years, A-1 Vacuum & Sewing Center has closed it’s doors for the last time. We all thank you for your many years of loyalty and appreciate the understanding as we move forward to the next stages of our lives. We have created many beautiful things in our years here, including friendships with some of the most amazing people in the world. Amie will be retiring from the daily grind of business life, and able to finally concentrate all her efforts on teaching others all of the wonderful sewing techniques and projects she has created over the years. Lonnie will be beginning his own entrepreneurship on the coast, opening his new store “Sew Happy” in Longbeach MS. Matt will be continuing his trade as the best sewing machine repair technician in the state, here on the northshore. As for me,  I am putting all my energy and efforts into raising Mikes and my, rambunctious little boy, back down south, closer to family.

Thanks to all for an incredible ride, we will miss everyone of you.
