JUST like the city itself, Heights Sewing Centre is a Geelong institution.
Owned by Ken and Marjorie Wilks for the past 53 years, the friendly sewing centre in Pakington Street, Geelong West, was first established in 1935 by Ken’s uncle, Les Height.
Since then four generations of Ken’s family have sold sewing machines and haberdashery.
Now in its 81st year, Heights also operates a dedicated team of factory-trained technicians for servicing and repairs to all brands of sewing machines and overlockers.
Ken enjoys coming to work even after 53 years. It’s a philosophy that has worked well for Geelong’s oldest sewing and haberdashery business.
Far from being just a shop. Heights Sewing centre is a haven for sewing enthusiasts. It’s a great starting point for people who want to learn about sewing.
Happy customers are the most important thing for Ken and his staff who ensure that they all leave informed and satisfied.
Everyone who purchases a machine or overlocker from heights receives free instructions on its use and advice about all aspects of sewing.
The enchanting and historic store is open 9am to 5.30pm weekdays, and 9am to 1pm Saturdays, at 176 Pakington Street, Geelong West.
