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
