Cathy's Sew & Vac has been a family owned and operated business located in Chico, California for over 35 years. We recently moved into a bigger and better location to better serve all of our customers, from Redding and Red Bluff to Yuba City and Marysville. Now we can offer more than just sewing machines and vacuums. And on Valentines Day of 2012 Cathy’s was thrilled to bring Honey Run Quilters and all that entails into our store. We invite everyone in to come and visit!
