Owners Lou and Rosalie with the owner of Bernina at Bernina University.


Upland Vac and Sew has been owned by Lou and Rosalie since the summer of 1995. After working together for years, they decided to open their own shop and bought this cute little building in downtown Upland. Over two decades later they still enjoy working together in their shop and running their business.  

Rosalie runs the business side of things here in the shop. Her managerial experience and strong work ethic provides the backbone of Upland Vac & Sew. When Rosalie isn't working in the store she is usually enjoying time with her 7 grandchildren. 

Lou prefers to be in the classroom where she can share her endless knowledge with eager students. If Lou isn't teaching, she is usually spending time sewing or hanging out with her 3 great-grandchildren and dogs. 

Together, Rosalie and Lou have over 70 years of combined experience and plan on many more years enjoying their shop together.
