Success! Thanks for posting your review of Old Sow -N- Sews Custom Sewing -N- Repairs. You’ve done the world some good today.

I am a second generation of family members coming to have sewing done here. Over the many years the Jacobsen's have been in Muncie, we have been having them design, sew, repair, or alter all sorts of things for our many family members and our varied activities. We have been able to recommend them to friends, co-workers, and even many church ladies and gentlemen for their personal and project needs. They have alway... view more

Still There, and Still the Best of the Best

Randall has retired this January 2010 but is still sewing in the Green-Quonset Hut behind their home. They have improved the circle drive around the home and shop to make more room for parking and getting in and out a bit better. He is now on an Appointment or as Available basis instead of set hours and days. Call 760-7697 (AT&T Cell) or 765-747-1934 (Home) to check on availability or to make an appoin... view more

Struggling but stll Operating Well

This is one of those Mom and Pop shops that has been struggling along on .15 cents still existing out of every $1.00 dollar that they had earned in 2007 early 2008 before the current Recession hit and is continuing its chock hold on so many. Their primary business number has been interrupted and they are still able to be reached by their home phone (765) 747-1934 or their Mobile AT&T Cell phone number (765) 58... view more

It really is exceptional as a Job Shop

For the record, the phone number there is 765-747-1934, (home) or, 765-760-7697 (AT&T Cell) and not the one posted above. And they are on a call to make an appointment basis these days. At our work we had been required to use a scanner, and the company didn't or couldn't get a scanner pouch from the company they leased them from. So on one of my visits to this place I had them take the measurements and d... view more

I get so many things done here!

Ever sense I discovered this place a few years back I have been back time and again. I have had jeans hemmed, coveralls zippers repaired, dog leashes made and repaired, rifle / shotgun slings made, holsters (Hip, Shoulder and in the pant) made, and boot zippers made for my duty boots. I just had a new anti-slip pad put on a shoulder strap and some travel patches sewn on the bag I take in my travels. I like to s... view more

Custom Sewing at its best!

Over the years I have used this part of the shop to get things made or repaired. At first my day took us here to get my school backpack straps and zippers repaired and reattached. The we had our sleeping bags sewn and tube cover fixed and some straps done. Now I am taking my own coveralls in for zippers, and patches from wear and tear in the field while hunting. We just took or son's backpack in for zipper and... view more
