Not only do we do alterations of all types as well as custom sewing, we also have a long arm quilting machine where you can learn to quilt your quilts or we can quilt your quilts.

We also give classes on sewing, quilting, sergers and machine embroidery. You can call me and give me your email and I can send information on the classes or tell you what the classes are for the month.

Looking for a unique gift? We have plenty – most of them are homemade!

We can also do logos on shirts, caps, jackets for business, schools, etc.

If you need notions, thread, or embroidery stabilizers, I have products in my store for purchase. I welcome you to come to Sew By SO, where Sharleen is a “Jackie of all Trades” of the Sewing Industry!


Need a special gift that adds a personal touch come in and check out at Sew By SO. Some are one of a kind and some are ribbon awarded.


These are products that I have to offer to customers. The first is of notions that sewing enthusiast may need. The second is of embroidery supplies that embroiders would need.

What people are saying:

  1. says:

    I love Sharleen’s style in everything she does. I especially love her embroidry work! Very stylish and anything you want!

    • Yes embroidery is very fun and I love to customize images for customers. Recently I did valentine cards and it was rewarding to see the customers just marvel over them. If anyone needs a special card and would like to have embroidery on come on in and see me!! Thanks for your stylish comment.

  2. Connie says:

    We had a coat that was a little too big and didn’t fit right, and Sharleen was able to alter it so now it is perfect! She got the job done fast and the price was very reasonable.

  3. Pauline says:

    I have taken sewing classes from Sharleen at the Bernina store in Farmington and after she moved to Cortez, I have continued with her classes (travel to Cortez once a month from Farmington NM). She has taught me so much about sewing and I have truly enjoyed doing it so much more now that I have retained so much knowledge from her. Her style of teaching is so relaxing and fun and knowledgeable. I never thought I would like quilting, but she not only got me to do a couple of them, she also taught me how to use the long arm quilter. So much fun!!!.

    • It is fun teaching and I am glad that I have had the opportunity to open my own store since the owner of the Bernina Store retired I am still able to continue to share my knowledge. Thanks for your comment
