If you are looking for a new sewing machine, Black Friday can be the perfect time to grab one at a discount.
Many of us have taken up new hobbies such as crafts and sewing as we have been spending more time indoors due to the pandemic.
And demand hasn’t dipped with the easing of lockdown restrictions, with searches on Hobbycraft.co.uk increasing by 244% from March to May 2021.
Sewing is a great activity because it keeps your hands and brain busy, gives you a well-deserved break from screen time, and gives you something you can keep forever.
And it’s not just for adults. Children can also join in the sewing fun and the machines make great gifts.
Here’s what you need to know to find the best Black Friday deals.

What to look for before buying a sewing machine
There are a few things you should think about before investing in a sewing machine.
First, you need to consider your own level. Is this your first sewing machine? Are you a complete beginner? Experts say the mechanical sewing machine is best for beginners.
Sewing machines can be expensive, so you need to figure out what kind of project you need them for before buying one.
For example, basic machines will have around 20 stitches, while more advanced ones will have over 200. It might not be worth investing in a fancy machine if you only need it for tasks very simple.

Buying a sewing machine for your children? There are a few additional things to watch out for.
Stephanie Parker, Craftsman at Hobbycraft Plymouth said prima“Sewing is a great creative outlet for children. Not only that, sewing can also help children further develop their fine motor skills. It will teach them how to work safely and responsibly with the equipment, and they will develop a practical skill that they will have with them for life.
“A few things to look out for in a sewing machine before setting it up include a finger guard, start/start button, and foot pedal.”
