Conveniently located in Gulf Gate, we are the exclusive BERNINA
sewing machine dealer in the Sarasota area. With a Certified BERNINA
technician on staff, a full bastion of shiny new machines (sewing, embroidery, longarm and sergers) and vibrant classroom - we are here to satisfy all of your sewing needs.
The Modern Sewist is also a boutique fabric shop with a unique selection of modern and contemporary fabrics, patterns, gifts and helpful tools. We stock the largest selection of Tula Pink, Cotton+Steel, Carolyn Friedlander, Alison Glass, Elizabeth Hartman, and Moda Grunge in the area, along with many other of your favorite designers. We also stock linen/cotton blends and canvas for all of your bag-making and home decor projects as well as garment substrates such as rayon, lawn and double gauze.
