Not your grandma's sewing shop

Well, technically we are...ever since our first mail order catalogs were shipped to mailboxes in 1961, we've served millions of hobbyists, professionals, charities, schools and universities, prisons, theater shops, furniture and decor design firms, churches, country stores, and probably your Grandma.

Today, over 60 years later, we continue to supply people serious about sewing, providing the same great customer service your parents and grandparents came to rely on.

This small family business from the little town of Bethlehem would love to help, whether you're working on a small project or growing your own business. Suppliers can make or break a business, and we work hard to set the standard in customer service and speedy shipping.

Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to the Home Sew Family.

early history

Silk Manufacturing

Our history goes all the way back to the early 1900s, when our original founder ran a silk mill in the Lehigh Valley's historic garment district, producing silk lingerie.

During WW2, the company was tasked by the federal government with producing silk parachutes for the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions. When the war was over, the company took a new turn; supplying homemakers and small businesses with quality sewing supplies, all done via mail order catalogs.

Decades later, we're still offering the same high quality supplies, service and fast shipping our customers have come to love.

The Catalog era

Newark Dressmaker Supply + Home Sew

After successfully running a mail-order catalog business, Home Sew merged with the famous Newark Dressmaker Supply in the early 1980s.

Together, we have decades of experience sourcing the best materials, notions and tools on the market.
