About Our Company
Family Owned and Operated for 35+ Years
Brad Porterfield, the owner of Humble Sewing Center, has been in the sewing machine business since the late 70’s. In the early days, he started from the ground up in sales, service, and repair. Over the years, he has become a factory trained technician for all brands including: Elna, Viking, Brother, Juki, Nechi, Singer, Bernina, Janome, Pfaff, and Babylock.
Brad has successfully owned and operated a number of prosperous sewing machine stores including Meyerland Sewing Center. He purchased Humble Sewing Center in 1997 from the original owner, Bob Crain. Through the years, under Brad’s guidance and standard of excellence, the store has continued to thrive and prosper.
Brad is now joined in the business by his daughter, Elyse. Elyse brings a new fresh approach to the business. She is a graduate of the University of Texas and taught fifth grade before joining her father in the sewing machine industry. She has an extensive knowledge of the store as well as a Love of Sewing.
Over 35 years of customer satisfaction and community service has helped Sew Vac Outlet grow into a successful business. We have two locations one in Humble and our newest store is in Dickinson.
