"Sew & Vac Inc. was first started by Bob Frisenda a Poughkeepsie native. Bob served in the navy during the Vietnam conflict aboard the USS Intrepid. He was discharged in 1972, and three years later he used a $2,000 US Navy savings bond to start a sewing and vacuum cleaner sales and repair store in his hometown.

Eventually Sew & Vac became a family venture with wife Sue and son Kevin participating in all phases of the business. Customer service has always been a high priority to Bob and his family.
