About Us at Sewing Machines UK
Over 60 Years Of Experience
Established in 1960, we opened our first ever shopfront at 162 Highstreet Deptford, laying the foundation for Sewing Machines UK as it stands today. While the Deptford shop is no longer available, our mobile engineers and Brockley drop-off location ensure that we still cater to the needs of the London area.
Today you'll find us at our headquarters in the Gillingham business park. Still the same family run business, a father and daughter team, just in a new home. Much larger space with a lot more machines on display!

Over 60 Years Experience
You've surely noticed our impressive 60+ years of expertise. Now, let's embark on a journey through time, exploring notable moments that have shaped our family company!
162 Highstreet Deptford
We Opened Our Very First Shop
Our establishment opened its doors in 1960, marking a significant milestone as our inaugural store located at 162 Highstreet Deptford. This physical location became a hub for Londoners seeking to explore and purchase our selection of sewing machines.
Tony Joined The company
As 1978 rolled in, Antony joined his dad in the business, marking the official transformation into a family business. Their expansion in the London store was destined to continue.
181 Deptford Hightstreet
We Moved To Our Second Location
In 1986, the business experienced significant growth, particularly in the industrial market. As a result, we required a larger facility to accommodate the sales and servicing of machines. We came across an ideal opportunity at 181 Deptford Highstreet, which offered a spacious shopfront and additional room for our engineers.
We Became A Limited Company
Unit 1, Sabre Court
We Opened The Gillingham Head Office
In 2020, with the onset of COVID-19, there emerged an increased demand for larger spaces due to the necessity of social distancing. This presented an opportune moment for a significant transformation. So, we relocated to Gillingham business park and launched our sales website. This allowed us to acquire more space, hire additional engineers, and become as we are today!
