Customer testimonials

I recently purchased a Babylock Ovation. Initially I chose the Evolution, and ordered that model, obviously having a senior moment. I emailed Russell to ask if I could change my order to an Ovation - no problem, all sorted out in a flash, and on a Sunday too. My overlocker arrived on Tuesday, an amazing machine and so easy to use. I am delighted and will be recommending Russell and team in future. Thank you all!

Hi Russell and Dave - just a quick note to say a big thank you for your excellent service! I'm so pleased to have bought from you again as you are extremely knowledgable, very helpful and totally reliable (unlike another internet sewing machine businesses - see Watchdog). My stunning Babylock Ovation arrived super-quickly, well packaged and delivered by a named driver at precisely the time I was advised. I'll certainly carry on recommending you. With sincere thanks,

Unbiased information.
I rang Sewing Machines Direct to discuss buying an overlocker. I had little experience of using an overlocker, but a couple of necessary criteria. The respondent spent time with me answering my questions. When we'd narrowed down the possible machine there was no pressure selling, it was suggested I thought about the purchase, arranged a demonstration; either at their showroom or with another retailer, and contacted them if I wanted to proceed with a purchase.
I decided to buy the machine and the order process and delivery was simple and efficient. The overlocker was also considerably cheaper than I could get it elsewhere.
I was very impressed with the operator's knowledge of the machines they stocked, and their courtesy and kind patience with me when I called. I would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying a sewing machine or accessories.
