Make it personal: Change your world with needle and thread

Visit Castle Sewing at Creativ Festival West, coming to Tradex in Abbotsford March 22 and 23, and be inspired with so many ways to make your projects personal.

Whether you’re sewing a beautiful new outfit or scrapbooking your family’s most cherished memories, channel your creativity and make it personal.

That’s the message from the team at Castle Sewing.

“Let your creativity come out in everything you do,” says Stephannie Bulman, who with husband Clint owns the third-generation business in Surrey’s Clayton neighbourhood.

And as the Castle Sewing team welcomes spring with lots of exciting new ideas, they encourage you to make your projects personal. Here’s a look at how:

  1. Reduce your environmental footprint … beautifully! Many young people who many not have had machine sewing experience are using hand embellishment to reimagine well-loved pieces into one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories. “If you have a hole in your jeans, turn it into a flower!” Stephannie says, encouraging crafters to visit the store’s Facebook page for ideas and to share their creations.
  2. Share your creativity: From card-making to scrapbooking, if you’re eager to find a creative outlet, there are many amazing ways to decorate your life. “Even if you’ve never sewn a stitch in your life, you can do this!” Stephannie says, pointing to new machines like the SDX 225 ScanNCut, the first digital cutting machine to include a built-in scanner – ideal for appliqué projects. “If you’re a crafter and you like to make things your own, this is a must,” Stephannie says.
  3. Discover a new talent: “Bring a friend and come take a workshop – you can even borrow one of our class machines to see how easy it is,” Stephannie says. And if you’re ready to take the next step, they’ll find you the right machine for your creative goals. The Brother HE300, for example, is a sewing, quilting and embroidery machine all-in-one that’s designed for all skill levels, and right now it’s just $499 – a $200 savings!
  4. Be inspired: Some exciting things are happening in the local sewing scene, and Castle Sewing will be showcasing many of them at Creativ Festival West, coming to Tradex in Abbotsford March 22 and 23. With three booths, Castle will showcase a wide range of projects, gadgets and gear, plus a large area dedicated to some fantastic Brother machines. Explore everything from entry-level models at several hundred dollars to the $16,000 Luminaire machine, whose state-of-the-art technology includes a camera to photograph an image, which it can then turns into an embroidery stitch. A projector then allows you to place and view the image on the fabric for perfect positioning.

Of course, you’re always welcome in store, home to so many machines and accessories – priced the same as at the trade show – but also friendly, knowledgeable expertise and service. “There’s lots of exciting things happening with sewing technology, but aftercare is so important,” Stephannie says, pointing to Castle’s expert technicians who service all makes and instructors who can help you explore all your machine can do.

Visit the Castle Sewing team today to see how you can make it personal! Learn more at or see them at the show!


Stephannie and Clint Bulman, third-generation owners of Castle Sewing, encourage you to explore your creativity.
