Beacon Fabric & Notions...The Company
With diverse backgrounds of engineering (Buddy) and nursing (Lydia), we started our company in 1990 as Beacon Marine Supply, Inc....a retailer of boating supplies. Shortly after we opened, one of our customers offered to sell us a used sewing machine. Because Lydia had been sewing since she was a teenager (and had taken some upholstery classes as well) we thought we could make a little extra money sewing for boats as an adjunct to our marine business.
We bought the sewing machine and put up a small sign in our store to advertise our new sewing services. Business was great! One year later, we were able to rent a second storefront for the sewing machine.
During this period of time we issued our first sewing supplies catalog and in 1995, embroidery supplies were added to our product line. Sewing was doing better for us than anchors or teak oil ever had. As a result, boating hardware (our original core business) was discontinued that same year.
Although we have grown, our commitment to our customers remains unchanged. We will always remain responsive to your feedback (good or not so good) and want to consistently provide you with the best possible service. So, for any questions, comments, suggestions or problems...please contact us.
