About Us


ABS Sewing & InStitches has been serving the Solano County community for more than twenty years.  Our goal is to offer you 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, Quilting and Vacuum store, offering qualified sales of Babylock, Janome, Juki, Pfaff and Innova sewing, embroidery, quilting and overlock machines, as well as Miele vacuums. We can also repair any brand of sewing machine ever built. Additionally, we provide extended education to help our customers get the most from their purchases including sewing, embroidery and quilting classes.

We also offer exceptional Long Arm Quilting Services. We use our amazing Innova M28 to do most of our machine quilting at a very reasonable rate. We also rent out a couple of our long arms so you can quilt it yourself.

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!
