 I am going to save you years of roaming and countless hours of googling to find Sewing related Shops in Jeddah. I have listed all the places I have been according to categories:

1. Places to Buy Sewing Machines in Jeddah

First, let me tell you about types of Sewing Machines. I only knew 2, simple sewing and overlocker. Truth is there are many, many types of Sewing Machines. Basic straight stitch sewing machines, zig-zag machines, serger/overlocker, coverstitch, embroidery and quilting machines. And these come in Home units and Industrial units, ranging from SAR. 200 to SAR. 20,000+

  • Dhahab Street in Balad

There is a whole street of Sewing Machine shops in Balad, Dhahab Street. You can find well-known brands like Brother, Juki, Janome and Singer there as well as others. Basically you are spoiled for choices. It all depends on your budget and requirements.. They sell good quality tailoring scissors, sewing machine feet and other parts.

  • Other Places from where you can Buy Basic Sewing Machines

Some supermarkets like Carrefour, Lulu Hypermarkets sell basic sewing machines too. In my opinion you should check out the market on Dhahab street. They are authorized dealers of brands and offer repairs too.

  • IKEA

Yes, IKEA sells Fabrics by meter and few Sewing Supplies too. In Tahlia Branch of IKEA, the fabrics section is at the beginning of Textiles section, on the left side. They have plain and printed fabrics, good for household use like curtains, drapery, cushions and covers. I have made my Sewing Machine Covers from their fabric and have found them of good quality.

  • Hindawiyah

A dreamland for Knitters, crocheters, sewists and crafters! Hindawiyah is a wholesale market. Here you can find each and everything in bulk and retail like sewing tools, notions, trims, threads, zippers stabilizers/interlining, buttons and what not. You name it, they have it! Few stores have Instagram handles too, so you can buy from them online ;) 

I only go to Hindawiyah when my list of sewing supplies shopping is loooong. As it is a wholesale market, the prices are relatively lower than other places in Jeddah.

Now that area only offers Charged Parking, so you can find spot easily. Unlike few years ago when we would go there after months waiting, all excited, then make rounds of market to get a parking spot, failing, then coming back home all furious and crying! Yep, those were the times!
