Machine & Workspace Hire

We are incredibly lucky to have received a grant from the Kingussie Hydro Fund which has allowed us to purchase a selection of machines which we can hire out to the local community - and do so at an affordable rate! 

Our Machines - Click the images for machine information 

Hamish & Jane - Janome 2200XT

Our Janome machines are great for beginners - pedal operated with basic stitch functions. Fantastic for projects such as bag making, basic quilting, hemming or repairing items 

Poppy & Terry - Husqvarna Emerald 116

Husqvarna machines are fantastic for a whole range of projects - dressmaking, curtains, quilting etc. They are simple and easy to use but hardy so able to cope with thicker fabrics or bigger projects. 

Bella & OIiver - Brother Innovis-IS 15

Our Brother machines have both a pedal and a Start/Stop button - giving you a greater range of control. These machines have some great fancy features which make any sewing project easy! 

Maude & Arthur - Brother  3034DWT Overlocker

Our overlockers are fantastic for beginners & experienced sewers - they are easy to set up and thread and come with a waste tray for collecting cut scraps and a extension table for larger projects.
