Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Well it’s been a very interesting December so far, for the first time the shop hosted its own sewing lesson, we have now to date ran two get to know your overlock courses, 1;1 overlock course and a get to know your sewing machine, all with great feedback and ideas to make things better, we also started to look more ahead into 2017 for the lesson and have started to book lesson into March 2017.

January sees two very exciting courses be held the first on the 3rd Jan is the Start tailoring course with an award winning tailor, then on the 4th January there is our beginners guide to patch work and quilting, these are all run as a 5 week course but we have scaled them down so you can pick and play with the patchwork each week is run as a single day however if you would like to you can book on the whole series, The tailoring course is run as a block 5 week course, but we do understand than 5 weeks is hard to commit too so we have been able to split this down to a two week commitment course so you can book on for two weeks at a time. Which we hope makes it a little more convenient for you all.


We also welcomed into the shop two new Bernina’s the B770qe and the B570qe, these as I am sure you know are great machines both design for patchwork and quilting the B770qe has such a huge arm it can handle a large quilt with ease, so if you are looking for a new machine and you have a Bernini in your heart come in and have a demo on them.

Sewing Machine Discounts.

We have also started to sell off some of our display range in these are in our Pfaff Section, these machines have only been used on our display section so they have very limited sewing time, they would have been used for less than 1hr in it its life. Have a look.

Was able to park right outside the shop. Was very satisfied with the service and repair of my Bernina sewing machine. Helpful, polite and friendly communication with Duncan. Would recommend this service to others. Thank you more

My 40 + years singer machine had stopped working for me but after SewingDirect replaced some parts & serviced it for me it's running like a dream. So pleased I found this little gem of a shop in Beeston who also stock all sewing needs & knitting more

I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and more

Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this more
