Hello… I’m Aggie. Welcome to my sewing shop!
I was born in Oregon, grew up in Homer, and have lived in Minnesota, Kodiak, and Anchorage. I currently live in Wasilla with my youngest daughter (who is also an accomplished seamstress). I have two additional children and two grandchildren who live in the area also, and I'm the mother of a son who passed from Lupus in 2012 at age 20.
I had the blessing of caring for him the last few years of his life, and owe much of who I am to that painful, yet beautiful, experience. That said, when I’m not sewing, I genuinely love spending time with my family, making jewelry, and fishing on the Kenai River.
Prior to owning Aggie’s Sewing Shop, I attended college to become a nurse, earned a Nurses Aide Certificate, CNA, and worked with many elderly and disabled patients. Although I really enjoyed serving people as a caretaker, I was in love with sewing from the time I was a child. When I realized I could make my living sewing, I opened my first shop in Minnesota and LOVED IT! When I moved to Alaska I stayed in the sewing industry working for Anderson's Bride in Anchorage for three years until my son needed fulltime care. After his passing I felt drawn once more to open up a shop here in Wasilla, offer sewing and alterations services from a place of heart.
I opened Aggie’s Sewing Shop in 2013 and moved to the current location in 2014. In addition to providing Mat-Su Valley residents with alterations and other sewing services, the shop also stocks a large, beautiful selection of bridal and prom jewelry. Stop by the shop any time to look at the selection.
Whether you are looking for zippers, hems, patches, buttons, bridal and prom alterations, advice or guidance on sewing or repair options, or even new jewelry for special events or gifts… please come visit us at Aggie’s Sewing Shop......a comfortable place where you will always be welcome!
