Hobbysew Echuca is a retailer of patchwork, sewing and craft supplies. The business was established by the current owners in 2003. Situated on Annesley Street in Echuca, the business enjoys good exposure to passing traffic with a great location on a busy street that takes traffic through to Moama.
Hobbysew Echuca entered into a franchise agreement with the Hobbysew Group for the first five years of operation and have continued to operate under the Hobbysew name ever since.
Hobbysew is a privately owned company which was founded in 1996 and has since been in the forefront of crafting and quilting supplies. The Hobbysew chain consists of both franchises and stores owned by the group with most of the Australian stores located throughout NSW.
The business boasts an impressive showroom floor to showcase the vast array of products available for purchase. In addition, there is a mezzanine floor currently used for storage, separate office, spacious classroom and two toilets. There are a number of parking options including three car parks at the rear of the premises (currently utilised by staff), two on-site car parks at the front of the premises as well as on-street parking.
This one stop shop for all crafting and quilting needs offers a comprehensive range of products for scrapbooking, quilting, embroidery, everyday crafting and haberdashery. There is a huge selection of quality patchwork, sewing and craft products along with an immense fabric selection with the latest quilt fabrics sourced locally and internationally.
Hobbysew Echuca also offers extensive creative class programs which are a great source of additional income to the business. Hobbysew Echuca employ two tutors who are experts in their field and the business regularly hosts international tutors as well as other teachers well known for their specialised techniques within the industry. The business is noted for the quality of its teaching programs and offers private lessons and group bookings for visitors to the area.
The industry is constantly changing with new techniques and increasing use of new products and technology. The qualified staff regularly attends workshops and events locally and internationally in order to stay informed and keep up with the ever-changing industry.
Hobbysew Echuca launched its machine quilting services in 2011 with the introduction of a Gammill Statler Stitcher machine - the best quilting machine on the market. This fully computerised machine can quilt all sizes from cot through to king sized quilts and is a popular point of difference for the business.
The business has demonstrated consistent sales over many years, and would be well suited to a single owner-operator or couple with a keen interest in crafts and quilting. There is a significant further opportunity to grow the business through online expansion and a possible increase in weekend trading. The freehold is also available for sale.
