About Us



KK Sew & Vac is backed by over 40 years of industry experience!  Our original location, Kaukauna Vacuums and Sewing Center was Founded in 1979 by Michael DiPietro.  The sister store, KK Sew & Vac II in Appleton was opened in 2001.  In June 2014,  Heath and Lisa Petersen purchased Kaukauna Vacuums and Sewing Center and KK Sew & Vac II.  Heath had been part of Kaukauna Vacuums and Sewing Center since his childhood and it was a perfect fit!  In May 2015, they opened their third location in DePere.  In August 2018 the three businesses were merged into our current business name: KK Sew Vac, Inc.   

Our respected Wisconsin sewing centers offer expert advice on a wide range of sewing equipment and vacuum cleaning products, along with providing a large selection of parts, accessories, and qualified repair services to meet our customers' maintenance and replacement needs. Heath is an advanced certified Baby Lock technician and provides our customers with outstanding service and quick turn around.  We pride ourselves in the quality of our customer service, offering ongoing training and support before, and after, the purchase.

As an authorized Baby Lock dealer, our friendly, knowledgeable staff members have the training and background necessary to help stitching enthusiasts effectively choose the sewing machine that best suits their lifestyle, creativity, and budget needs. We are also an authorized Riccar dealer offering our customers the best vacuums on the market today.
