I lined this business up for my mother to get her machine repaired and they treated her with respect and at a very reasonable price. Many thanks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do sewing machines need to be serviced?

Sewing machines and overlockers are complex and have many moving parts. To maintain good working operation, these parts require periodic cleaning and lubrication. In addition, regular inspections enable us to make adjustments and carry out repairs to keep your machine working when you need it.

What happens in a service?

While machines have differing requirements, as a rule, all machines will be lubricated and cleaned. Common adjustments will be made to areas such as the thread tension, belts, shuttle, feed or other timings. Where damage has occurred, these parts will either be repaired or replaced as required. As a rule, most common faults are dealt with in a service.
