Founded by Carol, Elly, and Ann in 1983, Carellan Sewing Centre is Winnipeg’s favourite destination for sewing machines, accessories and classes.


Now, just as it was back in 1983, Carellan's goal is promoting excellence in home sewing , quilting, and machine embroidery. We achieve this goal everyday by providing friendly and helpful service, hints, and advice to our customers.

We sell two of the world's leading brands of sewing machines and sergers and along with a wide selection of notions for home sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery, Carellan is your sewing room away from home!  


Carellan Sewing Team

Together, Carellan's ladies have over 300 years of sewing experience. We all sew, quilt, or embroider on the machines and sergers we sell. To say the least, sewing is our passion.



My journey into sewing began on a Singer treadle machine when I was 9 years old. I have sewn everything from baby clothes, wedding dresses, men's suit jackets, home decor, and Halloween costumes and clothes for my two girls. I came to work at Carellan in February of 2000 and haven't looked back!

I am Barb's oldest daughter. She taught me to sew on her top of the line machine , so I've been a spoiled sewer since the beginning. I like to work with the embroidery machines and the embroidery software the best. If you have embroidery software questions, I can help you with both your PC and your Mac computer.



I started sewing when I was 4 years old and have been hooked ever since. My Father was a tailor and I inherited his talent.I when to Dressmaking and Design College in England. I own 5  machines that I can't live without. I teach quilting classes at Carellan.
