HEIGHT'S SEWING CENTRE - Established 1935

A family owned business with classic customer service

Heights Sewing Centre in Pakington Street, Geelong West, is a Geelong institution.

Owned by Ken Wilks and his wife Marjorie, our centre is just as well-known for our friendly staff as it is for our quality sewing machines.

Ken has been running the sewing centre for almost 50 years - his uncle, Les Height, and Les' father started the business in 1935.

Since then, four generations of Ken's family have sold sewing machines and haberdashery.

Far from being just a shop, Heights Sewing Centre is a haven for sewing enthusiasts, and also a great starting point for people who want to learn about sewing. In the fully equipped sewing school, where we teach dress-making we have students as young as 11, right up to people aged in their late 70's. It is a fun shop where we have lots of laughter and we enjoy people coming in.

Everyone who buys a machine from Heights Sewing Centre receives a free demonstration and advice about all aspects of sewing.

Happy customers are the most import thing for Ken and his staff members who are all fully trained to ensure customers always leave informed and satisfied.

This enchanting and historic store is located at 174-176 Pakington Street, Geelong West, and is open from 9am to 5.30pm weekdays and 9am to 1pm of Saturdays.

Our sewing school is located at 5 Candover Street, Geelong West
