Our Shop

We are still the little sewing shop with a big heart - but now refurbished and buzzing with quality new products and ideas. We listened to your requests and needs and have reorganised to give more space to browse and find those exciting possibilities for your projects or answers to your sewing problems.

New products, brands and newly arrived machines for sewing, quilting embroidery, overlocking, cutting and more. We have all levels for all needs from the latest high tech computerised “dream machines” like the Stellaire and Luminaire, to machines designed with fundamental simplicity to excite beginners. We also have a great range of industrial machines. Our full range comes with demonstrations, instructions and guarantees.

We pride ourselves on future proofing your sewing and craft needs with quality and support.
