Creative Sewing & Quilting Celebrates 25 Years

Lisa Flyte’s lifelong love of sewing is more than just a hobby - it is the foundation of her multi-generational family business that is celebrating 25 years this May.

When you walk through the doors of Creative Sewing & Quilting in Geneva, IL, you are likely to see Lisa happily chatting with customers as she helps them pick out the perfect sewing machine or fabric for their project.

Creative Sewing & Quilting sells a wide range of sewing machines - including embroidery machines, quilting machines, and sergers. They carry Baby Lock machines as well as Koala and Tailormade sewing furniture. You’ll find a large variety of fabric, kits, patterns, and other sewing supplies, as well as expert instruction and advice. Their machine technicians service all makes and models of machines, and their offering of classes and events keeps customers busy learning new skills and mastering their machines.

Creative Sewing & Quilting is celebrating their 25th anniversary this May with special sales, demonstrations, and events all month long. The celebration will kick off on Tuesday, May 3rd with a ribbon cutting and 25% off throughout the store. 

This local, family-owned business was originally based in Sandwich, IL and has had multiple 2nd locations throughout the years, including Sycamore, Warrenville, and St. Charles. They now have one location in Geneva, open since 2008, that expanded a few years ago to include an extensive fabric selection.

“I have been privileged to work in a business that is happy,” says Lisa. “It’s a hobby business, so people that come here are happy to be doing what they love. I have loved making connections with the amazing men and women who walk through that door - many of whom become great friends.”

Lisa Flyte and her late husband Joe purchased the business May 2, 1997 and worked side by side for many years. After his passing in 2015, the second generation of Flytes (Grant, Eric, and Sarah) joined the family business.

Now you will find three generations in the store, as new babies join the family in their day-to-day operations. Friendly and knowledgeable part-time staff and teachers have also become part of the extended family, helping to create a supportive, welcoming, and inspiring atmosphere for their larger “sewing family.”

Lisa’s connection to the business actually began back in high school, when she worked for the original owners, helping on the sales floor and even teaching sewing classes.

If you visit today during one of her classes, you’ll hear the hum of machines mixed with laughter and conversation as sewing friends catch up with each other and learn new creative techniques. Everyone is welcome, and everyone has the ability to create something beautiful.

Creative Sewing & Quilting is proud to be celebrating 25 years of supporting the love of sewing in their community, and they are grateful to their loyal customers and friends for being part of their creative journey.
