Sherri Stratton is the owner of Serge A Lot, a sewing machine and vacuum retail store in San Francisco, CA. As a child, she learned to sew while living in Upstate New York during a big snow storm. Trying to find something new to do while cooped up inside, Sherri’s father set her up with her Mom’s sewing machine and she was hooked! Now Sherri has over 16 years of experience in the sewing & vacuum business, and with all makes and models of sewing machines and vacuums. She is an expert at teaching machine operation lessons and finding ways to help others achieve their design goals, whether it be with sewing, embroidering, or quilting.
In 2007, Sherri was delighted when her daughter Tammi invited her to attend Fashion Design courses at Cañada College together. Sherri enjoyed spending the additional time with her daughter and although becoming a Fashion Designer was never her dream, the education she received at Cañada was invaluable. After taking courses with the Fashion Design program, Sherri became inspired to fulfill a lifelong dream of starting her own sewing business. She now enjoys helping her clients achieve their own dreams.
