Longtime Area Sewing Center Closing Its Doors

Posted by wlpo on April 1, 2011

A staple of downtown Ottawa is closing up shop after today.

Barb Mann is closing her Mann Made Sewing Center after putting her building on the market.  Mann says she wants to focus more time on family but will continue to do sewing classes at Reddick Library and IVCC.  She also will continue with her “My Blankie” side business.

Mann started working at the sewing center for her mom when she was just 16.
