Star D LLC owner, Dawn Dorman, was introduced to the world of quilting through her daughter-in-law, and it quickly grew into a lasting passion. While looking for a new sewing machine she and her husband, Rick,discovered there was no Janome dealer in their hometown of Abilene, TX.
Realizing this would be a good business opportunity, Dawn and Rick started researching machine sales and maintenance, acquiring the necessary training and obtaining basic and advanced certificates in machine repair in 2013. After repairing and servicing machines for a year, the pair decided to pursue a Janome dealership and acquired a store front in late 2014, becoming an authorized dealer the following year.
Rick and Dawn love what they do! With a business philosophy based on quality and integrity, they continually offer their customers exceptional product variety, unbeatable customer service, and a friendly, home-town store atmosphere that welcomes sewing enthusiasts of all skill levels.
