It all began in 1974 when Augusta was provided with a family-owned business that sold Singer sewing machines and services. You may know it as Branum's Sewing and Vacuum. Years later in the early 1990's, sewing machine tutorials and other various classes were offered to those who had purchased a machine, whether they were an experienced sewer or just starting out! Within a decade, the store started offering more than just sewing machines: fabric, sewing supplies, and the like were added to the line of products making it a one-stop-shop for everything sewing! As Branum's moved into 2011, Nick Meabon came on board as a managing partner with the dream of taking over ownership, that is if the business grew more. Well, in 2013 Nick's dream came true! Since becoming owner of the beloved Branum’s, he continued to expand the selection of sewing supplies and fabric. The list of state-of-the-art classes, training sessions, events and additional services also grew for the sewers in the Augusta area. Now that 42 years have passed since opening the doors, Nick thought 2016 was the year to rename Branum's to what it's really been known as this whole time: Augusta Sewing Center.
Just think of us as The Augusta Sewing Enthusiast’s Country Club! We officially welcome each and every one of you to Augusta Sewing Center. Here, you will experience highly trained and knowledgeable staff, sew much fabric that you may bust at the seams, kits and precuts, and more.
