Hello! I'm Alice, I run Backstitch, the bricks & mortar and online shop.

  • Big Sale Dates!


    We're planning our annual clear out sale and there is going to be lots of good stuff going on clearance.  Mark the date in your diary... the sale opens on Wednesday 11th December!  The sale will be online and in our Burwash Manor shop.  We'll also be having a cheeky Black Friday promotion, so make sure you sign up to our newsletter to receive this.

  • Exciting news... we are having a BIG sewing machine sale event on Mother's Day, Sunday 31st March 2019.  All our display and classroom models will be going into sale discounted 20% for one day only!  When they are gone, they are gone!

    We have 13 machines going into the sale.  Eight of these machines have been on display for one year, sat on the shelf looking pretty and occasionally being used as a demo model.  And five of these machines have been used as our classroom machines.  All of these models are going on sale, with all original accessories, manual, box and with a full 3 year warranty.  Normally we discount these machines 15%, but for ONE DAY ONLY we will be discounting them a hefty 20%.

    This is a fabulous opportunity to get a nearly new sewing machine, with full warranty for a great price.  Treat yourself this Mother's Day!

    This is the full list of machines showing the 20% discount that will be available on Sunday 31st March:

    1 x Brother L14S Sewing Machine: £79.20 reduced from £99; 1 x Brother LX25 Sewing Machine £111.20 reduced from £139; 1 x Brother XR37NT Sewing Machine £167.20 reduced from £209; 1 x Brother Innov-is 15 Sewing Machine £199.20 reduced from £249; 1 x Brother Innov-is 27SE Sewing Machine £279.20 reduced from £349; 5 x Brother Innov-is F420 Sewing Machine £479.20 reduced from £599; 1 x Brother Innov-is NV1800Q Sewing Machine £1,039.20 reduced from £1,299; 1 x Brother 3034DWT Overlocker Sewing Machine £223.20 reduced from £279; 1 x Brother 4234D Overlocker Sewing Machine £319.20 reduced from £399.

    If you can't make it down to the shop on Sunday 31st March they you can call up and buy one of these machines over the phone with the full 20% discount for collection another time.  If you have your eye on a particular model you may want to get it bought early in the day as when they are gone they are gone!

    If you would like to try any of the machines before the day you are welcome to come into the shop any time.  We are open seven days a week.

  • This is the fourth year that we have taken part in Sew Saturday at Backstitch.  The annual national celebration of independent sewing shops.  There is a chill in the air and the nights are drawing in, definitely time to cosy up and get started on a new sewing project.  Come on into Backstitch and let us inspire you to get going!
