Committed to quality for 24 years!
Founded by Fred and Joyce Drexler, pioneers in the home sewing industry, the
Sulky brand continues to be the most recognized and sought after name in
decorative threads and stabilizers.
Interesting facts about Fred and Joyce Drexler, founders of Sulky:
For the last 24 years, the Drexlers have been insistent about
maintaining the very highest quality in all of the products that bear
the Sulky label. A good example of this is their continued commitment to only use raw rayon fibers made by ENKA in Obernburg, Germany, which have been tested and proven to be the very highest quality raw goods produced anywhere in the world.
Educating consumers has always been a top priority, and Fred and Joyce are Education Innovators. From their earliest consumer classes in their retail store in the 70's to Joyce's National "Success Seminars" and "SMART" events in the 80"s and early 90's, to "Sew Exciting" Seminars in the mid-90's through today, to "Certification Trainings" beginning in 2004.
In 1992, Fred spearheaded the 10-month "Operation Mend" project which invited sewers all over America to "Share their Stash" with Hurricane Andrew victims. Thousands of people did, netting two full semi-trailer loads of sewing machines, fabric, patterns and every other imaginable sewing tool and supplies!
As they celebrate their 24th Sulky anniversary and almost 35 married years, Joyce and Fred continue to maintain their excitement and sense of adventure (note the photo of them sledding at their North Carolina home) as well as their commitment to providing you with the very best quality products and education.
