  • 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!
