You'll find a large variety of fabric, kits, patterns, and other sewing supplies, as well as expert instruction and advice.

Our History & Our Family
May 2nd, 1997 was the first day that Lisa Flyte and her late husband Joe owned the sewing business that would grow to become Creative Sewing & Quilting. At the time, it was known as Bits N Pieces and had two locations in Sandwich and Sycamore, Illinois. Fun fact - Lisa actually worked part-time for the original owners when she was in high school and college!
Over the following 25 years, the store saw many changes, but still remains a local, family-owned business focused on bringing happiness to our community through our love of sewing. The many creative connections we have made over the years are a testament to our wonderful, loyal customers and the personal, caring atmosphere of our sewing shop.
The smiling faces that greet you now include the second and third generation of Flytes involved in the family business.
Eric and Grant (2 of Lisa's 3 sons) work on maintaining and repairing all makes and models of sewing machines, and Sarah (daughter-in-law) manages the marketing and website.
Eric and Sarah have also brought in their daughter Ruby and son Griffin as babies, adding some extra excitement (and cuteness!) to the multi-generational family business.
Our part-time staff, teachers, and "behind the scenes" helpers have also become like family over the years. We send so much love and gratitude to everyone who is currently working with us (Becky, Betsy, Denise, Eileen, Joanie, Joanna, Lynn, Mary Beth, Rose, and Ruthie) and everyone who has worked alongside us up to this point!
(A special thank you goes to Betsy and Mary Beth for helping us in our daily store operations - they are rock stars!)
And last but CERTAINLY not least, we want to give a big, warm thank you to our loyal community of customers and friends.
Your business and friendship over the years has sustained us and brought us so much joy, connection, and creativity. Your continued support enables us to still be here to support your sewing journey for many years to come.
We hope to see you during the month of May! Don't miss the special deals and demos, but also come on in to give us a hug and celebrate with us!
The Flyte Family of Creative Sewing & Quilting
