About Us

Etty Lilly | Your Official Store for Sewing & Embroidery Machines

Etty-Lilly is a family run business founded in 2009. We pride ourselves on the quality of our service and advice and take pride in the standard of products we stock.

I am keen knitter, sewer and craft enthusiast and soon realised how little choice there was in the area for wool, fabric, knitting and sewing essentials, this inspired me to open Etty-Lilly.

The shop stocks a wonderful range of wool, fabric and haberdashery accessories, all hand picked by myself, providing my customers with a fantastic range of new and exciting products. I am constantly seeking out new suppliers to keep my shop as exciting as possible.

Call in and be inspired by our staff and the wonderful range of products including Sewing Machines, Embroidery Machines and Overlockers.

We are the leading stockists for Brother, Janome, Singer, Bernina and Elna sewing machines and overlockers and we welcome customers to call in for a demonstration on any of our models on display.

We want you to buy the machine that is right for you, we encourage our customers to sit and ‘play’ on any of our machines until they feel comfortable with the model of their choice.

Call in and be inspired.
