It’s that special time of year again. The weather starts to get cold, decorations start to appear, the smell of baked goods fills the air…and the excitement of once-a-year deals on the goodies you’ve been looking at all year appears in your email inbox.
This year there are some pretty great sewing and embroidery sales going on! So, if you’ve been looking to upgrade to a new machine, or just stocking up on crafting supplies – here are the top sewing and embroidery deals this year.
Sewing & Embroidery deals at Sewing Machines Plus
Sewing Machines Plus has a number of sales going on for various sewing and embroidery machines. All of these deals include free shipping, and MANY of them include very valuable free gifts too. There are a number of stand-out deals here, but here are some of the best.
Bernette B70 Deco + FREE Bernina 9 Creator Embroidery Software
If you’ve been looking to upgrade your embroidery machine… now may be the time!
Sewing Machines Plus has marked down all of their machines, AND the Bernette B79 and B70 both come with Bernina Creator 9 Embroidery Software for FREE.
This software is valued at around $1,200, so it’s a pretty great deal if you’ve been wanting to get into custom embroidery and learning to digitize designs yourself.
This software is easy to use, allows for manual or auto-digitizing, has 60 lettering and monogramming fonts, allows you to convert designs to applique, and export cutting files. The machine itself has a 10″x6″ embroidery area too, which is a great size for a ton of projects.
Baby Lock Jazz II + Electric Lift Table + Quilting Frame Mega Bundle
Until Sold Out
The Baby Lock Jazz II is already an exceptional sewing and quilting machine, but Sewing Machines Plus has a Black Friday bundle that makes it an even sweeter deal.
While you can get a free gift with just the machine, the quilting bundle is a much, much better deal!
The SMP Baby Lock Jazz II Black Friday bundle comes with the Stay Perfect electric lift table ($1,400), Grace Cutie tabletop frame (Normally $1,200), and a free gift bundle of sewing accessories as well!
The free bundle includes: a Gold XL sewing mat, 100 pack of Organ needles, a 3-year platinum warranty, 13 extra feet, 60 days of online classes, and an 18-spool quilting thread kit.
Buying just the electric lift table, tabletop frame, and the machine would normally run you over $3,500, not including the free gift. But this package has been discounted to $2,699 as part of the Sewing Machines Plus Black Friday live event this year.
Janome MB-4SE Multi-Needle + FREE Bonus
Have you been looking at a multi-needle embroidery machine to speed up your project workflow? If so, you might consider this stellar deal on a Janome MB multi-needle machine.
In addition to excellent pricing, Sewing Machines Plus is also throwing in $550 worth of free accessories for the machine.
This includes: the hat hoop for embroidering on structured caps, a lettering hoop holder, No.7 lettering hoop, and the no. 9 lettering hoop.
They are also offering a discounted Black Friday upgrade on the AVA cabinet bundle if you’re interested in that as well. It’s a full cabinet system for the machine and it comes with 77 spools of thread as well.
Grace Q’nique 16×16 Longarm Quilting Machine + Choice of FREE Quilting Frame
Have you been looking to get a dedicated long-arm quilting machine? If so, check out this deal on the Grace Q’nique.
This machine offers 16 inches of throat space, and right now, it’s priced under $3,500. In the world of long-arm quilting, that’s a steal already, but for Black Friday, Sewing Machines Plus is also throwing in a FREE quilting frame of your choice.
You can choose from either the Q-Zone or Cute Frame. The Queen Q-Zone quilting frame is worth nearly $1,400 by itself.
It’s also possible to upgrade from the base model if you need more features. The main difference being the elite model is slightly faster (2100 SPM vs 1700), has a 7″ touchscreen, dimmable lights, and a few more doodads. All of which you can see in a nice comparison chart on the Sewing Machines Plus website.
Grace Cutie Tabletop Hoop Frame
If you’re not yet ready to upgrade to a full longarm quilting machine, you can actually make your domestic sewing machine work with a quilting frame.
In addition to giving away free frames with the Grace longarm, Sewing Machines Plus has also heavily discounted the Grace Cutie Tabletop frame, down to $489. It’s a great price if you’ve been looking for one.
There are some others on sale as well, but this one has the deepest discount.
Design Deals At Creative Fabrica
Creative Fabrica is running a couple of promotions that may be interesting to you if you use a lot of designs for Etsy or POD products in your side hustle. First off, almost everything on their site is on sale, and once you buy it, you have a lifetime commercial license to use that design for POD, Etsy stores, or to create other digital assets. Black Friday Discounts on single designs range from 50% off to as high as 90% off!
You can pick up a lot of cool stuff for projects here including SVGs, sublimation designs, t-shirt designs, mug designs, embroidery designs, or even craft patterns if you’re more of a hobbyist than an Etsy entrepreneur.
However, if you use a LOT of designs – they’re also running a sale on their subscription. Normally, their All Access subscription is $30 a month, but it’s marked down to $4.99 per month for the holidays. And you keep that pricing forever, it’s not a limited trial price.
This subscription allows you to download an unlimited number of designs and gives you a full commercial license, including Print On Demand Rights for your store. Perfect for an Etsy shop.
Save $300 On Hatch 3 Embroidery Software
If you’re interested in becoming a digitizer and creating your own embroidery designs, Hatch 3 is the go-to software for at-home digitizers.
It’s honestly great software, and I’ve used it myself before. Even though digitizing is still hard to do, Hatch makes it a LOT easier than the free programs which aren’t as user-friendly.
Normally, this software will run you $1,099, but for Black Friday, they’ve discounted it by $300 and you can pick it up for $799 – which is a good deal if you’ve seen how much other digitizing software costs. With this deal, you’ll also get 200 Hatch Academy lessons for free too.
PS. If you’re not sure, they do offer a 30 day trial of the software which you can use to see if digitizing is something that you actually want to do long-term.
Crafting Deals At Amazon
Amazon has a number of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas deals going on, and they update them quickly. I’ll try to keep a running list of the promotions, but they tend to change theirs more frequently than other stores so you have to keep checking back. Here are some of the standout discounts in crafting this season.
30-50% off Select Branded Yarns
This one is a little tricky because it is not ALL the yarn. But, if you browse the page, you’ll see that several of them say “50% or 30% off with coupon”.
All you need to do is check the little box to apply the coupon code and get a discount on the yarn. As an example, this Red Heart Unforgettable Sunrise 3 Pack has a 50% off coupon you can apply.
However, there are quite a few other colors and varieties that are also discounted or carry the coupon code. You just have to look through the options to find them, as not all colors or types carry the discount!
Time-Saving TIP: To find the coupons easier, go to this page and then use your search function (control + F) to search for “with coupon”. You can then hit the arrow key down and it will bring you to each entry with a coupon code!
