Terms and Conditions

This site is for the advertisement of sewing related businesses who trade online. Any non-sewing related businesses will not be published on the site and we reserve the right to charge a £10 admin fee for the time it takes us to remove the listing and refund the money.


You give us the right to edit or amend your listing however we see fit, for example to correct grammatical or spelling errors or to improve your chances of appearing in search results. You agree that all information contained within your listing is not libelous, defamatory or misleading.  It is your responsibility to update your listing should any information change. 

Listings will not be published on the site until payment has been received. We reserve the right to refuse any listings that we do not want on the site for any reason and will refund any money paid in that instance.

Listings will appear in search results in a random order.


The payment system on the site creates a recurring payment via Paypal.  If you prefer to pay by Bacs or standing order please contact us for our account details.

If payment is made in the form of an annual Paypal payment it will automatically renew on the same date each year, quarterly recurring payments will renew on the same date every 3 months.  If you wish to cancel please give us 3 working days notice before your next payment is due.


We will not pass your details to other companies (see privacy policy) but any information contained within your listing is in the public domain and may be used by other companies for marketing purposes. 

We may use your details to send you the occasional e-mail offer or information about any relevant changes to The Sewing Directory. You have to chance to opt out from those e-mails during the sign up process. 

We will record statistical data regarding how many times your page is viewed using Google Analytics. This information is available upon request.

Off site promotion:

As well as promoting your business on our social media (if you opted for a package with social media promotion) we may also promote you in guest posts we write for other sites/blogs or in the features we write for magazines.  We cannot guarantee to do this for every business listed on the directory but we seek to promote our customers where we can.

Certain factors will make us more likely to promote your business:  If we can easily find information about your products/events/offers, and if you have good images for us to share then you are more likely to be promoted in this manner.

We also seek to feature as many of our customers as we can in the content we publish on The Sewing Directory too.


We will pass the details of competition winners onto the company providing the prize as we do not handle the shipping of prizes.

In some instances the entries are sent direct to the prize giving company, you will be able to tell from the e-mail address given for the entries to be sent to and we will inform you clearly in the competition write up if this is the case. 

If you have any queries please contact us.
