Our History

We were founded in June 1996 by sewing-mad Neil and Rosemary Coles as a family business, under the original trading name of Husqvarna Studio Nottingham. In 1998, we won the prestigious International Dealer of The Year Award, and we were runners-up in the Award's last year in 2001. The business has expanded quickly since then, and we are now the UK's largest dealer of Husqvarna Viking sewing products.

We seek to offer great products at an even greater price, as well as legendary expertise. All our staff at Coles Sewing Centre Nottingham are committed stitchers, always using the latest products - that means there's always an expert here to help, regardless of how niche your issue may be!

Our sewing classrooms are among the largest in the UK, and are fully-equipped with the latest Husqvarna Viking sewing machines, overlockers and large cutting tables. Our sewing courses are taught by very experienced and friendly tutors.
