We sell a small range of Juki sewing machines in store; these are a range of reliable domestic machines from an industrial sewing machine manufacturer, but if you’d like your own machine repaired or serviced, read on!
Sewing Machine Servicing & Repairs
Sewing machines are the workhorse of your sewing workroom, and a well-maintained, smooth-running machine makes sewing a joy. Think of your sewing machine as your car, requiring regular maintenance to keep the mechanics in good working order for many years to come. Whether you rely on your machine for work or enjoy sewing for leisure, keeping your machine maintained will give you the best finish possible.
Drop off your sewing machine for servicing and repair at either of our shops, and we’ll take care of the rest. Our engineer visits about once a month to service and repair all the machines that are booked in. He is generally able to service and carry out basic repairs on the day, but for more complex issues or if parts are needed, he may need to take the machine back to the workshop. If this is the case, he will always phone you to discuss it before going ahead.
What does it cost? A standard service is £59.50, with £10 paid as a non-refundable deposit when the machine is left with us, and the balance of £49.50 on collection.
The deposit covers the engineer doing an initial check of the machine, and if he finds it is beyond economical repair as this point he will call you to talk it through and no further charge will be made. For a straightforward service or repair the balance of £49.50 is payable when the machine is collected from us. If there are any parts that are needed or any additional cost, our engineer will call you to discuss this before going ahead, so, there is no need to worry about an unexpected bill when you come to collect your machine.
Tools for Self-Reliance
If your sewing machine has seen better days or is no longer repairable, we offer a recycling service via a great charity called Tools for Self-reliance. TSR repairs and rebuilds redundant sewing machines and a whole range of other practical tools. These are supplied to grassroots organisations in poor communities overseas, who offer practical and business training and then equip people with all the tools they need to build a sustainable livelihood. so you can take comfort that your old machine has gone onto live a useful life!
