Things to consider when buying a sewing machine:

 

  1. Function. What would you like your machine to do? Dressmaking? Quilting? Textile art? What type of materials are you likely to use? Cotton? Leather? Paper? Will the machine be for professional or personal use? Answers to these questions will help us to focus your search.
  2. Budget. How much are you willing to spend? Sewing machines range in price from £99 to £9,000. Where do you fall within that spectrum? Call David and Sophie to discuss how to get the most for your money.
  3. Potential. We want to make sure that the machine you buy will last. Consider which machine is realistic for you today, but will also provide you with future potential. It’s better to invest in a machine that will last you twenty years than to buy something that will cramp your creativity after two. Our free private tuition and ongoing support guarantees that you’ll be able to explore your machine’s potential over any length of time.

Jean and Patricia visit from London!

We had the delight today to have Jean and Patricia fly up from London (they were excited and up at the crack of dawn with a 5am alarm).

They both had 1 on 1 lessons for the day with our sewing tutors, Jean on the left has the Janome 9400 and Patricia has the Janome Atelier 6, both wonderful machines!

It is always great to have customers come up to visit that live so far away, and they are now safely on their route back to the airport!
