Chestnut Ridge Sewing was originally founded Tom Beachy. In 1985, he started repairing sewing machines in a small shop behind his home. By 1988, the business had grown so much that it was moved into a larger building, and a sales floor was added for BERNINA products. At about that time, Tom’s sister Rhoda and his father Alvin became partners in the business, and it continued to grow.
In 1998, Linda and her late husband Frank Mitchell bought the business and continued the Beachy family’s tradition for 17 years until Linda sold the business to Dawn Krier in the summer of 2015. Now, Dawn continues the tradition with Mike Miller and staff. Mike has been with Chestnut Ridge Sewing since 1994 and Dawn started in 2007. Together, Dawn and Mike continue to grow and offer the best service and support possible.
