Important Announcement from Neil and Rose at Coles Sewing Centre

June 2024


Dear Customer,


As we celebrate our 28th year in business, we find ourselves entering a new chapter. Our lease on Lower Parliament Street ends in December, and as we approach retirement age, we feel it is the right time to step back.

We have put the business up for sale in the hope that we can find a buyer who will bring continuity to the vibrant community you have helped us to create at Coles Sewing Centre. If we are unable to find a buyer, however, we will sadly have to close our doors in December.

Should we not find a new owner, we want to reassure you that our service department will continue operating from a new location. All machine warranties will be honoured, and we will continue to provide sewing machine servicing and repairs.

We will continue to trade throughout the summer and autumn and our classes will continue to run until December. 

We have enjoyed serving all our customers, in the UK and around the world, and would like to thank you all for your support. It has been a fantastic journey!

We would also like to thank all our team members past and present, especially our current team who have helped us to survive the most recent challenges of business, including the pandemic. 

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in running a successful, relocatable business with wonderful, loyal customers and incredible staff, please reach out to Neil directly at

Thank you once again for your support and friendship over the years.


Best Wishes,

Rose & Neil
