How It All Began

Parsons Sewing Center opened its door in 1953 in Holyoke, Ma, under the ownership of Mr. Wally Parsons thus, beginning a long New England tradition of sewing machine sales, service and trust. Mr. Parsons began by selling Singer sewing machines and in 1970 he moved his business to High St. in Holyoke, MA where he brought his wife into the business to begin offering lessons in sewing and free motion embroidery. When sergers were introduced in the 1980's Parsons Sewing Center was among the first to offer lessons in serging. Their son Jim Parsons was brought into the business doing repairs.

In the early 1980's Mr. Parsons entered into a partnership with Joann Fabrics and Husqvarna Viking at which time the store moved to the Ingleside Mall leasing a space inside of Joann Fabrics where they offered the same trustworthy service. Shortly, thereafter, Parsons moved to Rt. 5 in Holyoke, MA inside Jo Ann fabrics. In 1996, Mr. Parsons retired and sold the business. Parsons Sewing Center continues to be a trusted name for all sewing machine sales and servicing.

In 2003, Parsons Sewing Center celebrated 50 years as trusted name in the areas of sewing machine/serger sales, service and instruction.
