About Us


ABS Sewing & Vacuum has been serving the Vacaville, CA, community for more than twenty years. We’ve shared our retail space with our companion store, A Quilted Heart, for over 15 years now and together we offer the best customer service in the industry. As one of our customers recently stated, “I love coming here because everyone is happy and the energy just puts a smile on my face”. Our goal is to make everyone feel that way!

We are a full service sewing and vacuum store, offering qualified sales and repairs of Pfaff, Brother, Singer and Babylock sewing, embroidery, quilting and serger machines, as well as Miele vacuums. Additionally, we provide extended education to help our customers get the most from their purchases (there's also a wide variety of quilting classes available at our companion store, A Quilted Heart).

Whether you’re in the market for an industrial machine, or you’re looking for a reconditioned machine that meets your budget, our friendly, attentive staff is always happy to assist you in selecting the sewing machine or vacuum that suits your lifestyle needs.

We take pride in our loyal customers who willingly drive long distances to buy or service their machines with us. That’s why we go the extra mile to build relationships and maintain trust...we want to be your preferred sewing and vacuum service provider!
