"This business is every reason why to find a sew shop and not purchase from some big retailer or online. I live on the west slope and we don't have a sew shop. I found this gem from an online search. They promised to call me when the machine I wanted came in, they did and they shipped it to me with the other supplies I requested along with the most lovely hand written thank you note with information on a free cleaning in my first year of ownership, a discount on all merchandise for the first year as well and encouraging me to reach out with any questions or issues. I look forward to driving over there in 2021 and working with this shop for years to come ! Thank you First Stitches for a super positive return to sewing." – Heather C
"Randy! You are the best. Thank you so much for your generous supply of cloth masks which I stacked atop the piles I've made to be delivered to the Territorial Prison. The medical staff and other personnel are so grateful. My old Singer machine has just plowed through this task. When all of this is over I shall send everyone I know to your shop, even if it's for a spool of thread. May your shop prosper when all this is over. Much appreciation." – Marti B
"Randy and Kimberly, Thank you for your act of kindness to the the community during these challenging times. Thank you for making this time extra special by making/giving donations of fabric for masks. Randy, thank you for working the weekend via video to teach me about my new sewing machine. You are the best!" —Aimee T.
"This is one of my top rated quilt/sewing/service provider stores (and there are only two stores on that list). The owners and staff are most helpful, incredibly qualified, and just plain old-fashioned nice. We needed rolls of quilt batting and even though that’s not something they have in stock, they ordered and delivered it to our door. If there’s something we need, they do their best to take care of us. We’re grateful to have them close by and especially wish to support them so, at the end of this pandemic, they’ll continue to be here for the quilters community." — Rebecca G.
"Thanks for fast and detailed maintenance on my machines. I really appreciate learning about different threads and our dry Colorado climate - who knew? Customer pampering from the first phone call to loading into the truck - great crew!" — Kisi T.
"I was visiting Colorado from Minnesota and happened across your shop in Canon City. The associates were friendly, inviting and helpful and I purchased several items. I am hoping to return someday on a future visit to Colorado. You have a lovely shop!" – Kathy S.
"The service is always 5 star! The ladies and gentlemen staffing the stores are super nice and helpful, and Randy has been servicing my machines for over a year now and I am extremely happy with his workmanship and professionalism! So glad they have opened..." – Holly V.
"I can not say enough good about this store and the people who work here. They have always been polite, knowledgeable and gone out of their way to help." – Karen C.
"Great selection of fabrics, tools, machines. The classes are excellent, with a wide variety of topics. Luv this store." – Glenda M.
"Whenever I travel, I like to go to quilt stores. There is always something new to see or, if I'm really lucky, a sale! But coming home to First Stitches is always the best. Great staff, great choices, lovely fabric. I read so many posts on FaceBook by people with questions, and my answer is always the same -- go to your local store for help! But so many of those folks don't have a helpful local store available to them. So happy that I do!" – Dorothy T.
"You must know there would be a lot of unhappy quilters in this town if your shop wasn’t here. Your staff are the best, always helpful and knowledgeable! Classes are fun and interesting. Please know you are doing something right! Love you guys." – Carol T.
"Love, love this store and the classes are excellent!" – Mindy P.
"I love your store. Everyone is so welcoming and ready to help you with your projects. They classes are so much fun and you make me feel like you are family." – Jannell F.
