Findlay’s in Orchard Plaza

Owner Lori Findlay-Mead has been serving Kelowna since 1990 & is proud to own Kelowna’s longest standing Sewing Machine & Vacuum Store. With on-site service for all domestic and industrial sewing machines, sergers, quilting, embroidery machines & household vacuums.

We are a customer focused store that actively make the needs of our clientele come first.

We make every effort to qualify our customers needs, so that you are picking out the right fit of sewing machine, quilting machine, embroidery machine or central vacuum…. for you. Many customers choose to take advantage of our trade in option, which allows you to trade in your old sewing machines for extra savings on a new baby lock or elna machine

With the Okanagan’s largest selection of baby lock & elna sewing machines, you are sure to find the perfect machine for your sewing needs. If a new machine is not in your budget, we have a large selection of previously love machines listed on our website.

Lori offers life-time FREE private instruction with the purchase of every new baby lock or elna machine sold, to ensure you get the most from your machine.

Looking to take a class?
We have our staple classes like Absolute Beginner and Intermediate Sewing, Quilting & Serger Workshops, as well as an ever changing selection of Fibre Art & Embellishing Workshops.

In 2005 Lori added a beautiful selection of cotton, batiks, flannels, brushed denims & chambray fabrics to her store. We often hear from customers that coming into our shop is like going into an art gallery, with our love of fibre art proudly displayed all around.

Whether you are looking for mettler, marathon or wonderfil threads, sewing & quilting notions, books, patterns, printing blocks, fabric paints, bag & purse hardware, zippers, buttons & more…Findlay’s in Orchard Plaza truly is “Your One Stop Shop for all your Sewing, Quilting & Fibre Art Needs”.

If we don’t carry it….we promise to do our very best to help you find it!
