Why list with The Sewing Directory?
Flexible - unlike other directories we do not tie you in to year long terms, try us out and see how it goes, sign up to our monthly subscription and not only does it break the cost down into affordable payments but you can cancel at any time.
- Workshops database - You can add your individual workshops to our workshops database whenever you like, for dates as far in advance as you like.
- Social Media Promotion - We promote our customers through Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest where we have over 10,000 followers.
More for your money - How many of you have found on the larger business directories they break sewing down into multiple niche categories so you end up having to pay for 4 or 5 categories instead of one. We charge just the 1 fixed price regardless of how many categories you fall under. Also unlike other directories we do not charge extra for you to have a link back to your website.
Range of payment options - Not only do we offer the choice of paying monthly or annually but we allow you to pay online (debit card, credit card or Paypal) or offline (cheque, cash or bank transfer).
Ease of use - We have tried to make our site clear and simple to use with the search bar available on all pages. We have a quick and easy registration process that you can go back to at any time and you have the option to edit your listing at any time.
Helpful - If you can't get to your computer and need to add or update a listing then just give us a call and we'll do it for you. Any problems or queries then contact us through the site, by e-mail or phone and we will get back to you asap.
Community minded - We do not charge sewing groups to list on the site as most are run not for profit. We are keen to spread the word about any charity related sewing projects so please let us know about any you are involved in. We want to keep you updated to with sewing events throughout the country so notify us of your exhibition or event so we can put the details on the site for all to see.
- The first UK dedicated Sewing Directory - Why get lost on a site listing thousands of types of businesses, this is the site for people looking for sewing related products and classes. Why list on a site whose main purpose is not helping to promote your sewing related business? There are other sites out there which have lists of classes or sewing suppliers but it is just a small section of their site and not the main focus.
