It's hard to imagine Joe Fulmer's Stitching Post as the same company he bought in 1982.
The Centerville-based retailer, which sells Husqvarna Viking sewing machines, designer fabrics and other sewing products, opened a superstore in the Cross Pointe Centre in July. The 25,000-square- foot facility carries sewing machines, fabrics, books, patterns, software and notions. It also serves as an inventory distribution center for other locations. JOE FULMER, HEAD of the 10-store Stitching Post chain, says the company is expected to reach $10 million in sales this year. The company, which employs 78, posted $8.3 million in 1999 sales and is expected to reach $10 million in sales this year .Stitching Post has expanded from one to 10 stores and Fulmer expects more to come on line. The company culls 92 percent of its sales from sewing machines. "That's the fun part," Fulmer said. Fulmer's father, Darrell, started the company in 1958. The younger Fulmer joined as a teen, repairing sewing machines and doing odd jobs. The company consisted of a single store and $200,000 in sales, but Fulmer planned to grow it. That year, the Stitching Post sold a record 100 machines; in 1999, it sold 8,000 sewing machines. Fulmer said the company ranks as the world's largest Viking retailer .
Joseph Fulmer, 46, is owner of the Stitching Post, a store that sells and repairs sewing machines, prosecutors said.He pleaded guilty Friday to charges of encouraging and inducing illegal workers to come to the United States, harboring illegal workers, fraud and misuse of government documents and engaging in a pattern of employing illegal immigrants, the U.S. attorney for southern Ohio said. Federal prosecutors said Fulmer began making regular trips to Mexico in 2002, approaching Mexican nationals about working for him.He paid illegal workers in cash and allowed some to live with him, prosecutors said. Last month, Fulmer used fake travel documents to allow three illegal immigrants to accompany him on a cruise, U.S. Immigration and Customs officials said. Two of the three illegal workers have waived their right to appear before an immigration judge and will be deported to Mexico, Immigration and Customs officials said Friday. Sentencing for Fulmer was set for July 9.
