Sewing machine repairs and services

Does your sewing machine need a service? Is the tension perhaps a little off? A service usually solves a lot of these problems and gives you back the pleasure in sewing with your machine. We are a pick-up point for Pemberton’s of Stirling. They collect the machines on regular dates and bring it back a fortnight later. Please ask for forthcoming dates. When bringing in your machine please make sure it is well labelled with your details and any notes to the engineer. When dropping off a machine you can use the loading bay across from the shop.

Classes

During the year, we run a variety of classes, mainly but not wholly fabric based. We offer regular patchwork and quilting classes, meeting eight times across the session either during the day or in the evening. In addition, our large choice of one day classes are focussed on a particular technique or end product and often you leave the class with a completed project and the motivation to make a lot more! Examples of classes would be: a one-day crash course in patchwork and quilting, handbag making, lampshade making, machine embroidery, free-motion machine quilting, and special patchwork techniques, such as working with jelly rolls and layer cakes. In the late autumn there are also several Christmas themed classes. The schedule is published twice a year and you can read a list of our current and upcoming classes here.
