About us

The Sewing Corner has a rich legacy of more than half a century behind us. Originally known as Sewknit, the store began as a modest knitting machines supplier in 1959. Presently, we offer a wide range of sewing, embroidery and overlocking machines and accessories in Tasmania, and shipping all over Australia. Our team, led by Bill and Karen Prentice, consists of experienced and friendly staff ready to help you in any way they can.

The core of our expertise at The Sewing Corner is our ability to sell and service machines in all categories of price and all levels of complexity. In our store or over the phone, our staff will help you find a product that will suit your individual sewing needs and abilities. From a new home sewing enthusiast to the professional fashion designer, we have sewing, quilting, and embroidery machines for everyone.
