About Us

Maggie's Sewing & Vacuum is owned and operated by Fort Collins native Maggie Payne and her son Ty Tarlip. Maggie was a Family and Consumer Science teacher at Fort Collins High School for 30 years, and after retiring in 2008, decided to use her love of sewing and teaching in a new venture. Maggie and Ty purchased the store from Jerry and Madeline Hixon (J & M Vac & Sew) July 1, 2016. and recently purchased Quality Sewing from Joan and Ed Spangler in Longmont. They are excited to provide excellent products and service in the sewing and vacuum industry. However, they pride themselves on the customer service they provide. As well as a full calendar of classes for all sewing ability levels. Free machine use lessons are included with any machine purchase.  Maggie's is the exclusive Baby Lock sewing machine dealer in Northern Colorado, and carries Miele, Simplicity, Sebo, and Sanitaire Vacuums. They service and repair almost all brands of sewing machines and vacuum cleaners. Unique Sewing Furniture, Koala, and Tailormade sewing cabinets and furniture are also on display and available. We are happy to help with sewing questions of all kinds, and offer a one year trade-up policy with any machine purchased.
