Why list with The Sewing Directory?


  • The first and biggest UK Sewing Directory - Why get lost on a site listing thousands of types of businesses, this is the site for people looking soley for sewing related products and classes. 

    The Sewing Directory gets 100,000 - 140,000 sewing and quilting loving visitors a month looking for sewing classes, supplies and inspiration.  

  • Flexible - Unlike other directories we do not tie you in to year long terms, try it out and see how it goes, sign up to our quarterly subscription and not only does it break the cost down into affordable payments but you can cancel at any time. You can even test the waters with a free listing first.

  • Workshops database - You can add your individual sewing and textile related workshops to the workshops database whenever you like, for dates as far in advance as you like.  Available for paid listings only.

  • Social Media Promotion - We promote many of our customers through Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest where we have over 80,000 followers.  We also include them in magazines features we write when we can, and in editorial content on the website. This is another option only available to people with a paid listing.

  • 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 one fixed price regardless of how many categories you fall under.

  • Range of payment options - Not only do you get the choice of paying quarterly or annually but you can pay online (debit card, credit card or Paypal) or offline (cheque or bank transfer).

  • Ease of use - We have have tried to make the 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 whenever you want.

  • Helpful - If you can't get to your computer and need to add or update a listing then just give us a call  or e-mail and we'll do it for you.  Any problems or queries then contact me through the site, by e-mail or phone and we will get back to you asap.

Being as most groups are not run for profit we'd suggest selecting a free listing.
