Do you have a project to finish or some mending to do? Is your machine out of action or you just don't have one? We offer use of our sewing machines in store so you can get those sewing tasks done!

Our sewing machines are wonderfully quiet and smooth electronic machines with a fantastic range of utility, decorative and embroidery stitches. They also have automatic 1-step buttonholes, auto-cutters, and auto-threaders. Or if you prefer you may use one of our mechanical machines.

Overlockers are also available for 3-thread, 4-thread or roll hem sewing.

Price: $10 set up fee, then $15 per half hour

Price includes use of:

  • Sewing Machine (bobbins must be purchased separately - 80 cents each)
  • Overlocker (includes use of black, white, grey or beige thread)
  • Sewing Tools (scissors, snips, tape measures, pins, chalk) 


Staff are available for technical questions about the machines but generally not for sewing advice. If you would like advice or tutoring on your project please book a Private Lesson instead.

If you are unfamiliar with the machine you wish to work on, we strongly advise that you book in for a Private Lesson on the machine before you commence your project.

Machine Hire is not available on Saturdays; only Monday - Friday.

Please note that machine hire is also not available during busy shop times, special events or scheduled lessons. Please call ahead or book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Sorry, we currently only hire machines for use in store.
