Grandma B’s Sewing and Confections now open

NEW BUSINESS RIBBON CUTTING — A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Monday, February 27, 2023, at Grandma B’s Sewing and Confections, located at 91 E. Main Ave. The shop is owned by Sheila Burger and offers various sewing and embroidery services in addition to baked treats, such as cakes, lollipops, and peanut brittle.

Meet Sheila Burger, owner of Grandma B’s Sewing and Confections. She just opened her new storefront in downtown Taylorsville at 91 E. Main Ave.

Looking particularly wise, as she glances over top of her reading glasses, Sheila explains that she has been sewing all of her life. “I sewed my finger when I was three,” she joked. “At six, I was making Barbie doll clothes. When I was eight, I made all my clothes to wear to school.”

Grandma B’s seamstress skills can provide clothing alterations, repairs, embroidery, and custom creations. She can also embroider t-shirts and caps.

Previously, she operated from a shop in Stony Point but decided to move to Taylorsville when the present location became available this winter.

In addition to sewing, Sheila is an accomplished baker and plans to offer lollipops, cakes, her signature peanut brittle, and other confections. She baked a very large, multi-layered cake for her parents’ 50th anniversary which was a family hit.

    Just got some of Sheila’s peanut brittle at the farmer’s market today, 5/13/23. So upset I didn’t buy more because we are literally fighting over the crumbs. Not even something I usually snack on but I will definitely be buying more.
