Although Sheryl Smith watched her grandmother sew on a Singer treadle machine as a child, the sewing bug did not infect her until she was 19. Then, after 20 years in the insurance industry, Sheryl decided to take a part-time job at a local sewing store.
Eventually, after working for several dealers, she and her husband Bob, whom she met at a sewing conference, made the decision to purchase their own store. They opened Accent Sewing in Murrells Inlet over fourteen years ago.
A few years after opening, the Smiths made the decision to double in size, expanding their store to 4,000 square feet.
Sheryl says, “Being a part of the community has been a blessing. We have taught lots of children to sew with our summer camps and as well as teaching classes for new sewers and quilters in our area. Sewing brings together people that have common interests and likes. Everyone has their own special gifts to contribute to each other.”
