Once upon a time there was a girl named Michelle who grew up with both parents in the sewing machine industry.... She worked along side her parents helping them in their sewing shops after school and during summer holidays. Michelle was convinced she would never pursue a career in the sewing industry.  

Her passion was music and went on to study and pursue a career in music administration.  Many years, moves, and career changes later... an opportunity presented itself and in 1999 Sewing Machine Factory Outlet was born. This little sewing store has had 4 moves and has seen many changes over the years.

In May 2011, Michelle moved her family and her business to Barrie, Ontario. Now operating as Simcoe Sew & Quilt, Michelle has used her sewing roots and knowledge of the industry to provide her customers with everything they need for quilting & sewing! . The ever growing inventory of 100% quilting cottons is one of the best in the area - offering 100% quality cotton from the latest fabric designers at the most competitive prices.
