Mercury Sewing Machines Co.
Welcome to Mercury Sewing Machines Co. & The Sewing Depot
First formed back in 1983 by Bruce Morgan - Bruce Morgan Sewing Machines. Bruce has now retired and enjoying his 70's although still tinkers with machines every now and then. During the 1980's he first started direct importing and selling industrial sewing machines into New Zealand. About 2002 around the time the Trademe online Auction site got going Bruce introduced the domestic range of machines. He was one of the original proper traders on Trademe and we have now sold well over 2500 machines via this site alone (Trademe user - "Bigbelly" - yes well, its only a name!). He is a very experienced Sewing Machine Mechanic and Salesperson (some 50 years) and visited the manufacturers in China and Taiwan selecting the machines he felt suited the NZ market.
I took over from Bruce back in 2010 and have relocated most of the stock to our own Premises in Petone Lower Hutt. I have also visited our suppliers in China visiting the factories and talking with the manufacturers about new models and directions of the industry.
The Sewing Depot
We have been getting busier and decided to open the front half of our Petone premises to the public - expanding from just our machines to supplying needles, threads, oil, spare parts, zips, buckles, webbing, buttons, scissors and general haberdashery.
We are also agents for Singer Sewing Machines and stock an extensive range of Singer Domestic Machines.
To help run all this we have teamed up with Jenny Deonarain from the Fashion Workshop and now also run Sewing Classes from our premises. These cover all aspects of sewing from beginner classes to overlocker workshops to patternmaking sessions to freestyle classes where you can just bring your project along to work on with a small group of like minded sewers and get help and advice when required and use our different machines if needed.
We have sold thousands of machines and are proud of the quality and reliability of the products we supply. We keep our costs down so that we can supply to you at reasonable rates. We stock parts and service all our machines. If you ever have a problem we deal with it as quickly as possible.Mercury Sewing Machines Co. is fully NZ owned and operated by a small NZ company called LatitudeNZ Ltd. Based in Wellington, New Zealand. We now have distributors in Both Auckland and Wellington and also establishing a relationship with a distributor in Vanuatu and looking to form relationships in other areas as well.
