About Us

Founded in 1964, Al's Vacuum and Sewing Centre has become the hub of Sarnia and Lambton County for vacuum cleaner and sewing machine sales and service. 

It all started in 1964 when Al Bedard recognised the need for a sewing machine and vacuum repair centre in Sarnia. Al was formally trained by the Singer Company and opened his first shop in the Mitton Village of Sarnia. Al’s Vacuum has always been in high demand for quality products and service so there was always work to be done around the shop. That’s when Al’s youngest son Rob came into the picture. Starting part-time on weekends and after school Rob was introduced at an early age. His love for the business became his passion as he learned every aspect and was always eager to know more. As time went on the business was continually growing and more help was needed. This is when Rob’s older brother Mike stepped into the picture. Mike played a vital role along side Rob as the leaders of the company and future directors. Their succession plan was a huge success as they facilitated their third move into their current location. As with their previous moves they were in desperate need of a larger location to keep up with the demand.

Al’s Vacuum and Sewing Centre is now Sarnia and Lambton County’s trusted business for top quality and affordable vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, quilting supplies, parts, accessories and expert service. Through the years Al’s Vacuum has evolved into experts in Central Vacuum sales and installation, commercial cleaning equipment, electric shavers as well as professional scissor sharpening.

For the sewers of Sarnia you can rely on Al’s to exceed your needs of quilting supplies, notions, top quality specialty scissors, accessory feet, Reliable steam irons and ironing boards. Al’s also boasts a huge selection of over 300 colours of Metler and Janome embroidery thread.
