About Us

Both Twin Rivers Sew & Vac and River Road Sew & Vac are owned by brothers Michael Lane and Dane Johnson, who have been in sales and service of sewing and vacuum machines for over 35 years. Their goal was to create a sewing and vacuum store that gives you the best experience of shopping for top quality premium grade vacuums and sewing machines.

We enjoy raising up the next generation of sewing and vacuum repair technicians. We take great pride in our staff who is highly experienced and trained.
