About Us

Since June 4th, 2011 it has been the mission of Five Eighth Seams, LLC to foster and encourage a love of sewing. Not only do we strive to introduce people to a new, creative hobby, but we also seek to provide a social outlet for sewers of all ages in a laid back atmosphere.

Five Eighth Seams, LLC encourages learning in a fun, low-key environment and provides rental opportunities for those who need machines and other equipment.

To support a truly personal and successful sewing experience, we carry an extensive variety of fine apparel fabrics and high quality designer cottons, along with organic cottons, imported cottons, and a large assortment of notions.

What people are saying about us

"Love your store! I live in Georgetown and will make the 75 mile drive to you because your staff and products are awesome! Your staff was so very nice and helpful. Loved the choice of children's patterns and material. Cute, cute, cute trims and laces, just what I was looking for! I am making my second trip there this week! A must stop if in Charleston area and you sew." - Molly Jones, March 2017

"I am so glad I found this store. This is my second attempt a taking sewing classes and I learned more in 2 hours at 5/8 than I have ever learned at Hancock's (out of business). Looking forward to the next class and learning more. Hopefully I'll get good enough to invest in one of those Husqvarna machines. Thanks Brooke. You are a riot."  -Shere Hills , January 2017

"Decided to finally buy myself a Husqvarna Viking serger. Came back two days later and bought me a fabulous sewing machine too. I couldn't be happier with my purchases and with the help from the skilled staff. Love this place." - Mary Copeland Boykin, August 2016

"All of the staff are well informed on every aspect and if they happen to not know an answer to a question, they will find someone who can! They are very patient teachers and the shop is a very great place to learn new techniques and brush up on old ones!" - Cheryl Clayton, January 2016

"I have gone here for classes & fabric since they opened. I love the atmosphere in there and as an aspiring fashion designer in Charleston, it is great that i can find great patterns & fabric here. They have also taught me so much. Highly Recommend to everyone! -
