Revolutionizing the sewing industry, one tear at a time

Creative Colors International, Inc. is celebrating National Sewing Month by showing customers how this family business turned the age-old practice of sewing into a modern-day lifesaver for small-business owners.

Sewing has come a long way since humans first picked up an awl and stitched together a couple of animal skins. The invention of the sewing machine in the 1700s changed the course of the sewing industry by alleviating some of the work of home sewers and moving it to mills. Over time, the craft of home-sewing has slowly declined, and most folks turn to department stores or big-box retailers for their clothing needs. These days, many busy Americans toss a shirt that’s missing a button, rather than make the small repair.

The observance of a month-long celebration of sewing began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan, who declared September as National Sewing Month to recognize the importance of sewing to our nation. Organizations such as the Sewing & Craft Alliance and the American Sewing Guild accepted the challenge, and pick up needle and thread every September to celebrate the creative and meditative practice of sewing.

If you’ve never threaded a needle, National Sewing Month is a great time to tackle a small home project, like a cross-stitch piece or a simple skirt. If you’re a thriving small business with rips and tears in leather seating or vinyl flooring, celebrate National Sewing Month by calling a trained CCI technician to buff up your shop.

According to the U.S. Small Business Association, there are more than 28.8 million small businesses in the United States, all vying for customers. One of the best ways to ensure growth and customer support is to keep your business looking fresh. First impressions are a big deal. Customers will not be impressed with your new menu if the hostess seats them at a booth with a ripped cushion. Patients will have a hard time following your medical advice if they’re seated in a waiting room with lackluster chairs.

Launched 28 years ago, CCI founders celebrate the sewing craft as a second-generation, family-owned and operated company with franchised locations in nearly every state. CCI sees the value of sewing and repairing damaged items.  Like generations before us, CCI believes buying something new is a waste of resources when you can save money by making a quick fix at a fraction of the cost.

CCI’s sewing services include leather repair, upholstery replacement and extend to salvaging vinyl flooring. As a family-run business, CCI appreciates the financial costs of owning your own company. They offer superior customer service and are dedicated to making your business shine.

CCI doesn’t just only help small businesses save money. Ink stains, wine spills and pet scratches make your home’s furniture and cars look dated and worn. Stubborn wear and tear can be fixed by trained technicians, saving the cost of replacing valuable home purchases and making expensive pieces shine.
