Hi there, I just wanted to drop a quick message because I had such a great in store experience at the weekend - Elaine, really was great. I came to purchase my first sewing machine - Janome HD2200, based on a recom­men­dation I came to the store to look at the machine, Elaine offered such knowledge and technical skills, the introduction to the machine she delivered made it less daunting and also gave me a confidence boost that I do actually know a little bit about sewing, I was so happy and confident I was making the right purchase. Elaine also advised on the correct accessories for my needs as i'm going to be using the machine to support my upholstery as well as cushions and seat covers etc… I really do speak so highly of my experience in store and have already discussed my time at Hobkirk's with my peers at the upholstery class. Thanks again, I really did feel like nothing was too much hassle and I left in such a great mood on a rainy miserable Saturday afternoon. I’m hopeful that perhaps the sewing classes may eventually return as I would defiantly enjoy another trip to Blackburn.

Excellent company. Very helpful, knowled­gable, and they want to make sure you get the most out of your machine. Great follow up support, so if you're a newbie or a complete beginner, these guys will make sure you don't feel like you've only got YouTube to turn to.

I really hope I wrote down Elaine's name correctly and I haven't got the wrong person! This lady was incredible. I had no idea what I needed, or what I was buying as it was a surprise gift for my mother. Elaine was without doubt the most helpful person I have ever dealt with, over the phone. She explained this whole product to me and hit every question I had written down before I even asked her. The item shipped the same day, and I think arrived the next, after having a conversation about needing to get it in time for a birthday! Support this business - they really care.

Excellent service and friendly staff. Ordered a part for my vintage Singer sewing machine with Gordon on Friday, and he had it stock for me on Saturday. Thank you very much!

Over& above the machine, I have to say Hobkirks have been brilliant. Answered patiently any questions I had (Mark that's you ) & David& young man brought machine on time& with everything I ordered . David was fantastic spent as long as I needed to feel at ease with machine, covered everything I needed to know made sure I changed the feet&had a play with machine . This is an amazing machine. Its my first industrial walking foot machine, however I knew exactly what I needed a machine to do/ have& it does not disappoint. Its got great build quality, fantastic flawless stitching, simple to use. I thought I'd feel as though machine was intimidating but it's control lable, smooth& quiet, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it ❤

Would like to thank the friendly team at the Blackburn store. Marcus & Linda (& the other lady.) Had a problem with a pair of scissors, Marcus dealt with the situation like a gentleman!

I cannot praise HobkirkS enough when purchasing my Brother XR37NT Sewing machine. I ordered it online one night, I had a call from the shop the very next day advising me it was being shipped out that day and I received it the very next day in Sunderland! I really appreciated the personal touch of ringing me. I would certainly recommend using Hobkirks and hopefully, one day, I may even be able to visit the shop and thank them in person xx
