Servicing and Repairs to Sewing Machines and Overlockers

We repair and service all makes of sewing machine, overlocker and serger, including Husqvarna Viking® machines. We have a fully-equipped workshop and fully-trained, friendly and experienced technicians.

Why have your machine serviced?

Most sewing machines, including Husqvarna Viking® and many other brands, are very reliable pieces of equipment and will give years of trouble-free service. However, poor maintenance will result in the build up of fluff, thread and debris, which, over time, will force critical machine settings out of position. Roughness can also build up around the stitch forming parts, resulting in poor stitching and thread shredding.

A build up of lint around the main motor can be dangerous as a spark from the motor could ignite the lint.

A complete lack of maintenance will result in premature failure of the machine.

As modern sewing demands more and more accuracy for that professional finish, your equipment needs to be on song to help you achieve this. Why not check out our help page if you have a problem?

Scissor sharpening

While your machine is in for a service, why not bring your scissors in for sharpening? It costs just £5 per pair and we can sharpen most types – from dressmakers shears to embroidery scissors, universal scissors to pinking shears, give your scissors a new lease of life! Please note, this is an in-store only service and sharpening is not suitable for all scissors: we are unable to sharpen scissors with blades shorter than 3” (7.5cm) and scissors with both blades serrated. For Fiskars scissors we recommend using a Fiskars Sewsharp Scissor Restorer, which you can buy online here. If you’re not sure, bring them in and we can advise you!
