Great Software offers

Since we've been here in Nottingham, embroidery machines and their software have changed so much! We have worked hard to establish ourselves as a centre of excellence for Husqvarna Viking Software, developing a software training room and course programme to help our customers get the most out of their design software. (Click here for details of our current courses, including software classes)

We've been bowled over by the response to Husqvarna Viking's 4D QuiltDesign Creator Software. It's so easy to create quilting designs for your embroidery machine and we have many happy users who will testify to that! If you'd like to read more about what this amazing software package can do, click here.

Who are we?

What a great question, giving us a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to you!

Husqvarna Studio, Nottingham, was opened in 1996 by Neil and Rosemary Coles. The Studio has remained in the same building ever since, albeit with subtle changes to the layout and stock! The original idea was to provide a one-stop shop for sewing machine enthusiasts and to provide expert advice and high class service.

Only one year later in 1997, the Studio was awarded the coveted 'International Dealer of the Year' prize by Husqvarna Viking. The intervening years have seen some changes here at the Studio, as embroidery and sewing machines have developed, but that original ethos remains. We only deal in one brand of sewing machines, so we can confidently say that you'll get expert help and advice from our friendly staff.

Let's introduce ourselves...

Neil has been in the sewing trade since 1976, after joining his father's business in Leicester. He's an expert on technical issues for all makes and model of sewing machine.
He's also the 'CEO', acting as Managing and Financial Director of the business, alongside taking care of the technical side of things on sewing and software .


They say that behind every successful man there is a great woman, and this is certainly the case with Rosemary! She takes care of the day to day running of the shop, and training centre, as well as writing the newsletters, course brochures and adverts!
To relax she swims..... and sews of course! She has a Designer Diamond

Lynn has been sewing for as long as she can remember. Lynn teaches classes in the Studio alongside working full time in the shop. She owns a Designer Diamond.

Helen is another customer turned staff member. She owns a Platinum Plus embroidery machine and 3D embroidery software. She has become a software expert and loves using it in quilting and other sewing disciplines.

Sandra takes care of the mail order side of the business, 3 days per week. You may well speak to her if you have a query with your order. She owns a Designer SE, and a Huskylock 905 overlocker, as well as the 4D Professional software.

Natalie joined us whilst still at school, and is now studying Textiles at Nottingham Trent University, but works at weekends and during the holidays. She is popular with staff and customers alike, and is our in-house model!

Lee joined us in September 2009 as an apprentice sewing machine engineer. Under Neil's guidance he is becoming very dextrous with all makes of machines. From Neil's point of view it is nice to have another bloke about the place to even up the numbers a little, and to be able to talk about football and cricket!

We'll tell you about the courses, fabric and sewing machines  in the coming weeks, but if you can't wait to explore, why not visit our website
