Thanks to everyone who stopped into the store during January to help us kick off our 15th year in business.

M&R Sewing and Vacuum is the oldest sewing and vacuum sales and service store in Madison and is also one of the biggest, something Rick is very proud of.  Rick's interest in sewing machines began at an early age, as he watched his father, Jim, work on and repair machines.  His knowledge expanded from that, as he worked repairing sewing machines for Bill's Sewing, Nancy's Notions and Jerry's Sewing.  With the purchase of Jerry's Sewing in 2002, which became M&R, Rick was now "The Boss".  With the training and extensive knowledge he has accumulated, on pretty much every type of sewing machine there is, Rick is what his employees refer to as the "machine guru". 

As we began the 15th Anniversary celebration year in January, with a thank you give-a-way,  it was great to see all our wonderful customers who have helped us grow over the past 15 years.  During that month, we offered our patrons the opportunity to sign up to win one of three door prizes.  Door prize winners were drawn on February 1 and the three lucky winners were: Jessica D. (Oregon), winner of the Baby Lock Anna Sewing Machine; Judy R. (Plover), winner of a $50 store gift card; Mary Ellen S. (Madison) who was also the winner of a $50 store gift card

We look forward to a great 15th Anniversary Celebration during 2017 and invite you to take part in the promotions we will be having throughout the year. To make sure you know about all the special promotions happening during the year, sign up for our email newsletter, join us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @MRSewingVacuum.

Thanks for the last 15 years as we look forward to the next 15. And of course, congratulations to our 3 lucky winners.
