ABC Sewing Center was opened in 1949 by Tommy & Rose Hiorns in their home and was moved to their Atlantic Blvd location soon after. Their daughter Pam began working with them at an early age learning the sewing machine business. Upon their retirement, Pam continued to keep the ABC Sewing Center going.
For 20 years, Dave Howell worked for the Singer Sewing Machine Industry and in 1982 D&R Sew & Vac was opened at the San Jose location.
In 1996 Dave & Pam married and continued to keep both stores open to service the needs of the community.
In 2018, they decided to merge their businesses and become known as D&R Sewing Center and remains at the 9850 San Jose Blvd location.
