Top Story:
The secret is out of the bag! Let me start by saying Sewing Machines are not manufactured in the U.S.

Some Babylock dealers have not been truthful to customers over the years.

Yes, Brother is the manufacturer of Babylock. No, Babylock is not made in Saint Louis, Missouri. These brand names, Brother and Babylock have become Top names in the sewing world. It is time to present the evidence to consumers about where 90% of the Babylock machines are made and why Brother is priced much less than Babylock.

Bottom Line. Babylock is a brand name owned and distributed by Tacony Corporation. Sewing machines are not manufactured in the USA or Fenton, Missouri.

In most cases, the most significant difference is which designs are included in each brand. The two brands work closely together, producing some of the finest embroidery machines on the market.

So why choose Brother?

Why pay more when you can purchase directly from the manufacturer?

Brother is designed and manufactured by the top embroidery and sewing industry engineers. Brother Industries is known for producing consistently reliable products and using the leading technology in all its products. It offers affordable prices to fit anyone's pocketbook.

Brother engineers make sure all Brother Dealers know the inside and out of all their products to support customers with any repair issues that they might have. Brother sells to big box stores and supports thousands of independent retailers nationwide.
If you purchase from one of these big box stores, you will not get customer support like you get from an independent retailer. Still, you will always get the warranty you deserve from Brother and any Authorized Brother service center.
Brothers' top priority in the retail business is to support their independent retailers with the best products and training to offer customers. These models have slightly different characteristics, but their primary components are nearly identical.

Top rules for buying a machine.
1) One that will fit your pocketbook.
2) A machine that will do everything you need it to do.
3) Warranty and support?
4) Can I upgrade or trade later?

Top questions to ask?
a) Do I receive lessons/ classes?

b) Are these in a classroom setting or in one-on-one lessons?
c) Is your staff knowledgeable about these machines?
d) Do you offer any other discounts throughout the year?
e) Warranty?
f) Do you have a service department?
g) Are machines done in-house?
h) Are you an authorized service center or just authorized to sell?

Heyde Sewing is an independent retailer and an authorized Diamond Brother dealer/ service center. We strive to support all sewing machine sales, from the Internet to dealer machines. We guarantee the best price with the best support you can receive from another independent dealer or web purchase. We will offer lessons on all current machines not purchased at our store. We cover models like Janome, Singer, Babylock, and Brother.
