About Us

Mr. Fonder began Fonder Sewing Machine Co. in 1943, in Downtown Sioux Falls. In 1972 his daughter joined him and in 1977 her and her husband took ownership. There children began to come into the business in early 2000 and in 2020 they became the third generation owners and operators of the business.

Today Fonder Sewing Machine Co. is located at 41st & Western ave. Our store location offers our customers easy access from both interstate 90 and 229, right off of 41st street, directly across the street from Scheels.

Our storefront has a huge selection of our brand sewing, embroidery, quilting, and serging machines for hands-on demonstrations. We also have a great sized classroom to host in-store events and classes and a big parking lot to accomodate events. We stock a great selection of thread, notions, and so many of your sewing accessories and supplies. We pride ourselves in offering the best machines, the best prices, and the best in-store service available in South Dakota.

A lot has changed in the sewing industry since our business began in the early 1940's. Technology has grown and improved sewing in many ways. Today sewing is not just for simple mending and repairs, it has become a hobby for some, and a successful business form many others.

Over the years we have seen the sewing trend change. Today’s machines are amazing and our selection offers a machine to fit anyone's needs, whether you're an experienced sewing enthusiasts or just learning your first stitches. All visitors are welcomed with a warm hello from a knowledgeable staff member who is always happy to help!
