About Us

First Stitches Sewing Store and Quilt Shop is locally owned and operated in Southern Colorado, offering sewing classes and qualified sewing machine sales and service.

The story of First Stitches began in 2011 when the owner, Kimberly Smith, purchased four Baby Lock sewing machines and traveled to various locations, teaching beginner sewing lessons to individuals of all ages.

Recognizing the community's need for a sewing center and repair shop, she decided to sell Janome Sewing Machines in a small space in the back of a bookstore in Cañon City, Colorado. Within a few months, however, customers insisted she needed more space. So in the spring of 2013, her husband purchased a charming circa 1934 brick building on 4th street. In the summer of 2014, First Stitches expanded their line of excellent sewing machines to include the Baby Lock brand.

Kim and Randy have filled their Cañon City shop with high-quality fabric, Baby Lock and Janome sewing machines, notions, books, patterns and more, to meet a variety of creative sewing needs. But more importantly, they makes sure that their customers are greeted by warm smiles, friendly, personalized service...and lots of memorable moments!
