Shop By Brands

Think of us as a sewing machine boutique...

As a certified sewing machine dealership, we have the ability to carry any brand of sewing machine in the world, not dissimilar from Amazon or Walmart or other big box stores.

But we choose not to do so.

We are selective in the machines we carry because we place a ton of value on RELIABILITY, LONGEVITY, and PERFORMANCE. We are huge fans of Japanese-owned sewing manufacturers and Japanese design, which is why we carry so many machines from Janome, Brother, Baby Lock, and Juki. We also carry Bernina, for we are big fans of Swiss Engineering as well.

Even with the brands we carry, we don't carry every machine model that they make. There is good reason for this. Based on the price point and the type of sewing you want to do, the fact of the matter is that certain brands make better products at certain price points than other brands. Why confuse you by carrying 20 different machine between $500-999 when there only 4 machines at that price point worth considering?

To better understand why choose to carry the machines that we carry, we recommend you read Dan's 2024 Ultimate Sewing Machine Review.
