Stitch’in Gwich’in Sewing Machine Repairs and Sales is a husband and wife sewing machine repair and sales business in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
After his retirement, Roger Fraser knew he wanted to learn how to repair sewing machines since his wife, Karen, a skilled seamstress, had upwards of 10 broken sewing machines and no one to fix them.
‘Everybody has machines in their closets waiting to get fixed,’ says Roger Fraser
Before Stitch’in Gwich’in established itself in 2017 in Yellowknife there was no local sewing machine repair business in the Northwest Territories.
Wanting to be skilled in repairing any make or model of machine, the Fraser’s traveled all the way from Yellowknife to Texas to take a 5-day intensive hands-on repair course, which has resulted in Roger becoming a certified repairman. Through the training, Roger is also able to tap into additional repairing resources and wholesale parts purchasing.
Additional, Roger has also been trained in repairing specific brands, such as Brother and Bernina. This has also resulted in Stitch’in Gwich’in becoming both a Brother and Bernina sewing machine distributor in Yellowknife.
