Sewing Direct – The Sewing & Knitting Centre Guarantee



What do you want when you’re buying a sewing machine?


We have thought long and hard about this and the experience we want to offer you.

I’m sure you have looked around the Internet to find the cheapest sewing machine – which is beautiful, and you are more than welcome to do so.


However, let me ask you a question. What will you do when your lovely new sewing machine has a problem? That’s easy, you will pick up the phone and speak to the company you bought it from, and you hope that the person who is on the other end of the phone cares about you and your machine.


Well, this is where we at SewingDirect – The Sewing and Knitting Centre –  stand out, this is why we are part of the Top 1%. We will do our best to fix your sewing machine on the phone, so you don’t lose time. We work very closely with the manufacturers so if we cannot fix this issue we will find the answer.


In the rare cases where this does not work, we will arrange for the sewing machine to be collected (which is why must keep all the original packaging) and fixed.

If this does not work, then don’t worry and don’t get upset, we will get this machine collected and re-looked at, for free.


What more can you ask for?


Why would we do this? Well, we are a family business, My Mother is an avid sewer, in fact, she is why I am into sewing machines as well as fixing them. I wanted our family business to stand out from the others.


We offer a personal touch, a company that cares about you, your sewing machine, and the project you are working on. What is more, I treat all our customers in a way I’d expect my mother to be proud of.

The Sewing and Knitting Centre did a long overdue service on my rather ancient sewing machine and did a marvelous job. I used my machine for the first time today and it really purred along where before it was definitely clattering along! They kept me well informed with the progress of the service and it was ready before the promised time. An advantage is the easy parking outside or in adjacent streets. Would recommend 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
