An Introduction to Bleasdales' Sewing Sales
Bleasdales Limited is the only auctioneer worldwide to specialise exclusively in the sale of antique sewing tools and accessories.
Robert Bleasdale, who founded the company in 2009, has more than 30 years of experience within the auction world and held his first specialist sewing sale in 1989. As an auctioneer he has achieved a number of world records including the sale of an Elizabethan thimble in 1990 which made £18,000.
At Bleasdales we use our extensive expertise to source sewing items from all over the world, many originating from pre-eminent private collections. Each of our sewing sales includes a broad spectrum of objects from antique thimbles to beautifully crafted sewing boxes and we always strive to source the best quality pieces.
Happily one of the great attractions of sewing tools and accessories is there are plenty of areas of collecting that are still very affordable for new buyers - do take the time to look at our Sewing Tools and Accessories Pages which will give you more information about different specialist collecting fields.
We plan to expand our sale programme in 2013 so we won't just be holding a Winter Sewing Sale and Tunbridge, Mauchline and Souvenir Ware Sale so remember to keep an eye on the site
In addition to our specialist sales we provide a comprehensive valuation service. We value not only sewing antiques and accessories but fine art and general antiques.
