We are a family run business established many, many years ago and have three generations working together, a fact we are very proud of. In addition, the ladies who work with us on a day to day basis have been with us for so long, they feel like family!
Happily located in the centre of the historic university town of Loughborough, we are on a pretty pedestrianised street in the Heritage Quarter of town along with other interesting shops and cafes.
We specialize in patchwork and quilting, hand knitting, cross-stitch, embroidery and haberdashery. We run an extensive programme of workshops throughout the year in our well equipped classroom, which we aim to be relaxed, friendly, informal and most importantly, enjoyable and informative.
Most workshops and courses are suitable for beginners and the more experienced and samples are on display in our workroom at least one month before the class takes place.
For many years we have sold Pfaff sewing machines, which we consider to be superb across the range. From the introductory models through to the embroidery machines, we receive support from Pfaff VSM that is second to none. Because of this not only can we sell a machine to you with complete confidence, we can offer free expert tuition; the introductory workshops are free of charge enabling you to really get to grips with your purchase.
We all feel strongly that we do not wish to sell you a machine in a box for you to go away and learn all about it from the handbook. We are always here to help and as we use the machines ourselves, we do know more than a little about them. A few years ago we added Janome machines to our range, basically to fill the gaps. We now feel that we can offer a machine to suit everyone’s requirements and budget.
Hopefully this gives you an insight into our shop, the stock is every changing and so the items on the website only really give you a glimpse. We would love to see you and if you can visit us, you can be sure of a warm welcome. If however, you are too far away, please contact us with any queries you may have. We are always happy to help.
