Back in  1951 William Stepp and  his wife Marion and  William's brother Carl set out to open up a sewing machine retail  and repair store. Back in these early years they would offer to come to customers homes and give free demonstrations of our machines.  William and Carl were successful and this allowed them  to earn customers trust and gave them a strong foundation.  Now, in the  late 60s,  the big  indoor malls started being built and  many of the big named stores such as Macy's, JCPenney, and Sears in their heydays anchored these huge malls. The average indoor mall had up to 100 stores, representing merchandisers with interconnecting walkways that enable customers to walk from store to store. In the sixties everyone was going mobile “needless to say going to customer's homes for sales, ended. Now, it was time for us to gear up our storefront for customers who wanted to come to us, this was a exciting time for us, it seemed like overnight that we had our storefront cleaned up. We opened up a much bigger repair area,we painted the walls, we put in new carpet, new bright lights, etc, we had inventories of new sewing machines, cabinets, parts etc, all ready for our incoming customers. We started selling much more, our customer base has always been loyal to us and this is the way our business has remained over six decades.The patriarch of our business William Sr ( best known by family and friends  simply as Buck), died in 1989. Carl, William's brother, passed in 1993. personal note, William and Carl  were forever close, they both not only worked together and of course brothers,  but truly were like best friends. I would like to think " that they are in Heaven talking sewing machines and maybe, sewing up a hem.  

​Gary, who is William and Marion's son and who worked alongside his parents since his early teens took over operations of the business after his father's death.

Gary met his wife Sandy and married in 1992. Sandy is a wonderful sewer and you will oftentimes see her at the store.  The matriarch of the company Marion, is now 86 years young and now retired, she still comes into the store from time to time to say hello and visit with everyone. Without question Marion is loved by all our family and our customers. 

Brenda and Mary two of Gary's sisters work in the store. 

We have two  highly trained mechanics who can repair most all brands of sewing machines and sergers. When it comes to sewing machines we have it all sewn up! We're not fancy, we just try hard to be the best in the business.  After 60 years in business, we're still going strong.

A-1 Sewing has some of  the  best sewing teachers in Atlanta. Come and meet with one of our sewist, all will be helpful with your sewing machine’s needs. 

We know that its been our customers who have kept us in business over these many years, its always been the blessings of making a sale to a customer and then that customer telling another, we have sold to parents then to their children and then to their grandparents. I often reflect working with my parents. I can remember what they would say that always  makes a business, " it is the people who works within the company"  Our family is truly lucky to have some of the finest and hardest working group of professional team members. My family places the highest value of our continuing success of our company because of them, now thirty years after our father's death we're continuing to strive to offer you the very best in your sewing machines sales and repairs needs. We hope you will shop with us and allow us to earn your business. Best regards,  Gary Stepp
