Our class sewing machines

A few of our students have said it would be helpful to know what machines  we provide at classes, to help them decide if they want to bring their own or not. Good idea I thought ! I'd like to know if I was coming to a class !    

We have.....

2 x Brother LS14 Machines
These are only a few months old, really really easy to use. Top loading bobbins, 14 pre set stitches including zig zag, and 4 step button hole.  My first machine was a brother so I'm very very bias but these machines are excellent value for money for a basic beginner machine.  Nice and light to take with you to classes/sewing group etc.

More details here if you are looking to buy a good basic machine.

1 x Brother ES2020 

Computerised machine, every easy to use.  Can change stitch width and length, and choose from 40 stitches also has auto buttonholes.  It has a LCD screen which tells you the stitch number selected, width and length and it also tells you which presser foot to need for certain stitches ! love that.

1 x Bernina Activa 220

I only bring this machine to some classes as it's heavier and slightly more complicated to use, although it's really easy once you get used to it just looks like lots of buttons !  It has variable needle positions which are really really handy - I have done a full review of this machine here

We do hope to expand our range of machines as soon as we are able, as the business grows :-)
