Guy’s NaaicentrumGuy’s Naaicentrum
Guy’s Naaicentrum was founded in April 1982. The story begins decades earlier, in the 1930s. Désiré Van der Vorst, the maternal grandfather of founder Guy, started trading in the Waasland markets with merchandise such as buttons, sewing thread, zippers, etc, to sell. Later he also starts a shop in the Slangstraat in Hamme.
Two of his three daughters, Annie (Guy’s mother) & Irène, later join the company with their respective husbands. Irène and Etienne successfully ran the shop in Hamme until 1997. Between the 1960s and 2005 Annie, Jozef and son Guy sold an extremely extensive range of high-quality sewing materials on the markets in Waasland and Dendermonde.
In 1982 Guy starts in the sewing machines. With a technical background as a background, he starts training with the most renowned sewing machine manufacturers of the time: Husqvarna in Huskvarna, Sweden on the one hand, and Pfaff in Kaiserslautern, Germany on the other. He learns all the basic elements to repair and adjust a machine. During the same period, he meets Chris, his future wife. Soon Chris, meanwhile his wife, begins to learn many tricks of the sewing trade from Guy.
During that period, Guy’s Sewing Center was located at 2 Plezantstraat in the center of Hamme. With the extensive range they already had at the time, they quickly proved to be an established value in the Waasland and beyond. Guy’s Sewing Center is bursting at the seams for the first time and a brand new store is opened in 1987 in the Roodkruisstraat. In the meantime, in addition to all possible sewing materials, from embroidery and overlock threads to an unprecedented range of zippers to scissors, various brands of machines have also been added to the range: the Japanese top manufacturers Babylock and Janome (then marketed in Belgium under the brand name Lewenstein). ) join the range. In the mid-1990s, the store was expanded for the first time with an underground warehouse, extra large showroom annex classroom and computers for software lessons. A few years later, the quality brand Bernina is also added to the range.
At the end of 2004, the range was expanded to such an extent that a new expansion was necessary. The new building with adjoining shop is being built in record time. In less than 12 months, Guy’s Sewing Center has doubled in size. Quilting fabrics, gems from Gütermann & Swarovski and an even more extensive range of handicraft items, such as knitting yarns from quality brands Lana Grossa, Rowan and Schachenmayr, further complete the range. With the sewing machines, the Japanese brand Juki completes the unparalleled selection of overlock machines and the quality brand Bernina is also included in the range.
From the autumn of 2012, his son Joris also joined the family business as the 4th generation in the sewing sector. He gradually learns the trade from both his father Guy and mother Chris as well as from the countless courses he regularly follows: he follows the lessons of Pfaff & Husqvarna VIKING, Bernina’s 3-4-5-7 series and the countless Janome- models, but also of all brands of overlock machines. Embroidery software and the multi-needle Janome MB-4/MB-7 series also hold no secrets for him.
In 2017, the decision was taken to tear down the adjacent building on the other side and build a completely new store: spacious, modern and light are the keywords here. Demolition will start in July 2017. After a tour de force, Guy’s Sewing Center 2.0 will open its doors in August 2018. An extra spacious showroom, much more light and space in all areas, efficient quality lamps to give the most true-to-colour image of the products,… Everything has been thought of. There is also a spacious classroom for the private lessons of the machines and workshops. The new store has a low carbon footprint in relation to its size:
large solar panel installation,
exceptionally economical LED lamps,
warehouse lighting sensors,
efficient and powerful ventilation,
heat pumps for heating and cooling,
using rainwater for the toilet.
The range of knitting wool and fabrics will be further expanded at that time. Lana Grossa even distinguishes Guy’s Sewing Center as a Lana Grossa Superstore.
Our permanent team of people now consists of Guy, Chris, Joris, Hilde, Anita, Liesbeth & Lore. Fixed points of contact to offer you the best possible service, each with its own specialty.
Far and wide, in East Flanders, Antwerp and Flemish Brabant, we are known for our customer-friendly service, clear explanations without buzzing marketing terms, large stock, unparalleled range. Guy’s Sewing Center is therefore the one-stop-shop for everything that has to do with sewing, needlework, knitting, ….

Huis Van de VijverHuis Van de Vijver6 LOCATIONS
For 3 generations, from father to son, Huis VAN DE VIJVER has been known for selling and repairing sewing machines. When I started in the business with my parents 30 years ago, we were just like everyone else and we sold several brands. I followed technical courses of every brand. But soon my passion for the Swiss brand BERNINA became clear. Precision, innovation, support and quality are the features that make the difference today. It is an honor for me to sell BERNINA and take the brand to the next level through our own expertise, service and know-how.
Huis van de Vijver
only exclusive BERNINA distributor in Belgium.
A board member of BERNINA once said to me:
“You have no blood but BERNINA oil in your veins”.
By being exclusive (and therefore buying in larger numbers) we can also offer our customers an extremely competitive price. Something that has always been important to us “”a good product at the best price”.
We always have all models and all versions ready for demonstration. Our own technical service, which is provided by myself, is the cream of the crop. We follow all updates and technical training closely. We have all spare parts in stock. For example, we still have parts from my father and grandfather in stock.
Equally important is customer support. You always have individual guidance, both during and after the purchase. All instruction classes are free and individual. It’s not because several people buy the same model or brand that you have to put everyone together on set days. For many it will be too fast and for others too slow.
You are inexperienced, you are a hobbyist, you are a creative centipede or you are a professional seamstress…. It is precisely there that you are personally and individually guided by our professional teachers. This is easily done with a simple appointment and without having to bring your own machine.
Our motto is not for nothing:
“A sewing machine bought at Huis VAN DE VIJVER is not only for yourself, but also one for the next generation!”
We provide support for the following projects:
Everyone who works at Huis VAN DE VIJVER (including the business managers) does all commuting on foot or by (electric) bicycle. All journeys under 4 km are done by electric bicycle. Displacements of more than 4 km with the fully electric car.
Plastic packaging is avoided as much as possible. We ask our suppliers to avoid plastic blister packaging. We ourselves only use packaging in recycled paper. All plastic drink packaging is avoided within the company. Only glass recyclable bottles are used.”
A small effort that makes a big difference.

Our store and our team
A little history…
From 1953 to today
For more than 60 years, the world of couture has held no secrets for the Stecker family.
Services, products and the store have not stopped evolving over the years.
Discover the history of Ets Stecker.
The house was founded in 1953 by Mr. Sauboin – Pierson.
At the time, the brave man traveled the roads and offered his services to the inhabitants of the surrounding villages. So much so that the name Sauboin remained established in the region for a long time.
The mission continues
Mr. Henri Stecker – Sauboin continues the mission undertaken by his father-in-law, remaining at the service of housewives and their sewing machines.
old store stecker
Here is the store as it was in 1965.
The succession is assured
At the rate of sales, the reputation of Maison Stecker grew and when in 1981, Mr. Jean-Claude Stecker and his wife Jacqueline Mary decided to extend this formidable activity, they undoubtedly benefited from the excellent work carried out by the two previous generations.
Choice of stecker sewing machines
A vast choice
Already in 1985, Ets Stecker offered a wide choice of sewing and embroidery machines from the biggest brands.
Training our customers
At the same time, sewing courses are organized so that our customers can use their machine in an optimal way.
Since then, at 126 bis rue de la Gare in Bertrix, you learn the techniques and mysteries of sewing, embroidery and patchwork through courses organized in the creative center. You make blouses, skirts, jackets, fashion accessories, embroidery, etc.
The digital adventure
The end of the 90s was marked by the advent of the internet and sites such as Yahoo, Amazon, Ebay, … but also http://www.stecker.be
Mr. Stecker surfed the wave of the web successfully by launching the first Ets Stecker website in 1999.
From this date, the family success story will take a new flight.
The company will expand its notoriety across Europe to become one of the leaders in the world of couture. Despite the distance, the quality of services remains unchanged.
Opposite, the site as it was on October 9, 1999
The quality of after-sales service has always been one of Stecker’s major assets.
As the number of customers increased, the workshop expanded to meet the demand. The technicians are also constantly trained in the latest techniques and innovations.
60 years already
It is already 60 years since the Ets Stecker adventure began and it is not ready to stop.
For this anniversary, the store was treated to a little rejuvenation with a new storefront.

New storage space
In order to be able to better respond to growing demand, a 280m² storage space located at the back of the creative center has been built.
