We often get asked why we don’t sell our sewing machines over the internet, quite simply we don’t believe you should make such a purchase just from viewing a picture of it, reading a leaflet, seeing it on the television, watching a video or just because it’s on offer.

We feel you should first think “why do I want to buy a sewing or embroidery machine?” Usually, it is because you want to be creative and make things for yourself, friends or loved ones. If this is the case you’ll be spending many hours with your machine making beautiful creations, and so because of this we believe the purchasing choice and experience should be more than just clicking a button.

At The Lorna Knight Sewing Academy we use sewing machines every day, whether on courses or for our own pleasure, and so we know how important it is to get the right machine to suit your budget and requirements (unfortunately this isn’t always the machine you see on offer, but sometimes it is which is nice). If you are interested in buying a new sewing machine come along, have a cup of tea or coffee and have a play on the machines to find the one that suits you.  We have all the official Brother offers each month and many of our own through the year.  We will endeavour to match any internet offers you see, so please don’t rush your purchase because you’ll be spending many hours with your machine and you’ll want to make sure it is the right one for you.

When you have found the right model for you, we will provide you with tuition to ensure you get the most out of your machine and we’ll be here in person to offer help by answering any questions or demonstrating its use (not just at the end of a phone line).

We’re not interested in just selling you a machine we’re interested in selling you the right machine.

So we’re sorry if you don’t live near us, but if you are considering buying a sewing or embroidery machine, think about taking a trip out to visit us and have a first-hand experience of using a range of Brother sewing and embroidery machines in a relaxed and pressure-free environment.
