About Us

"Sewing machines today are more complicated, and therefore better craftsmanship is needed in repair work."

Those are the words of Francis Gratz, the founder of Gratz Sewing. And he's right. In this day and age of "disposable goods" it is getting to be difficult to find true craftsmen to provide you with quality work.

You wouldn't trust your brand new car to an unlicensed and unqualified mechanic would you?

What about an antique classic that has been handed down to you from generation to generation?

Of course not!

And you shouldn't trust your sewing machine to just anyone. After all, it is quite valuable, whether it is a top-of-the-line model and the best that money can buy, or it was Grandma's first sewing machine and holds enormous sentimental value for you. You want the best care for it, and Gratz Sewing will treat your machine with the care it deserves.

When you buy from Gratz Sewing, you're not just buying a machine,
you're buying a tradition.

With over 73 years of experience, we are a family-owned and operated business that has been serving the sewing community with excellent service and quality products. Francis Gratz started this tradition and passed on his knowledge and great business ethics to his son Duane. Now in it's third generation, grandson David continues with this tradition and carries on the legacy left to him by his father and grandfather.

"Satisfied customers and quality work
keep people coming back."

The Gratz Family sticks to this! Repeat business and referrals are the lifeblood of a small business. If you don't do quality work, your customers aren't satisfied, and they won't come back. And they won't tell their friends. We've been in business for over 70 years because we have a reputation for customer satisfaction.

But don't let our reputation speak for itself. Come on in and experience it for yourself. Test drive any one of our new or used machines. We'll help you find what you're looking for!
