What we do

Pleasuresew was founded in 1986 with our name as our promise, to make your sewing a pleasure. If you are looking to buy a new sewing machine or cabinet, a length of fabric, a new iron, a cute gift for yourself or a friend, or you want to learn to sew or patchwork, this is the store to visit!

We promise to help you with your selection to meet your needs and budget and to back it up with tuition and after sales service.

For those already experienced, we have regular Club meetings, workshops, quilt groups and retreats, attended by regulars from Bundaberg to Grafton and West to Roma.

In our quilting studio we have many different long arm quilting machines and frames backed up with Greg's long standing experience and knowledge in all things to do with long arm quilting.
