With the cost of good quality machines soaring in price, it pays to have your machines regularly serviced.

Howdens have for over 40 years provided service and repair facilities to all of the Local Education Authorities in the Yorkshire area. If you would like any further information please call us on 01484 516700.

As a result of the experience gained working with schools and colleges we are confident in recommending the current range of Bernina and Brother sewing, embroidery and overlocking machines. Bernina machines have been used in the majority of our local schools since 1965, and some of those machines are still in use today, still giving trouble free performance. Brother are one of the world's largest suppliers of sewing machines, both domestic and industrial. One in every three machines sold in the UK is now a Brother.

As it is in the long term interests of manufacturers to supply equipment into Technology, Textiles, Fashion and Art departments, discounts are available for bulk purchases. Please call us on 01484 516700 and we will endeavour to give you the best price for your chosen model. We will try to beat any genuine education quote. Alternatively email us at: with a list of your requirements.

Onsite servicing and routine maintenance can be arranged at competitive rates.

Please contact us for details on any of the above.
