We Can Help

There can be a number of things that can go wrong whilst sewing. The most common problems being:

  • Your sewing machine is skipping stitches
  • Your sewing machine is running to slow
  • The sewing machine has loose stitches
  • The light bulb on the sewing machine doesn’t work
  • The bobbin is not winding correctly
  • It is gathering threads underneath the material
  • The sewing machine squeaks & requires oiling
  • The foot controller is broken
  • The motor is faulty

If you do a lot of sewing, lint, thread and broken needles can collect in the needle bar, hook, and feed mechanism, causing problems ranging from noise to more serious problems that can stop the machine from sewing. Heavy use can remove the oil that the machine uses to run smoothly. Lint or thread pieces can cause serious tension problems. Having your sewing machine serviced regularly will avoid more potentially serious problems.

If any of these problems do occur, drop it in to us and we will take care of the rest.

Purchased new Singer 4411 semi industrial sewing machine

I was looking for a robust sewing machine for my wifes’ birthday…..Don’t know anything about them …Lester at LRM Sewing machines sorted me out at a very keen price and a cuppa and also run the machine off to check all was perfect….a real professional service and workshop/ showroom….

Purchased a Frister & Rossmann 4 thread overlocker…..great machine

My old Singer over-locker was on it’s last legs and I was recommended to contact Lester from LRM Sewing….as I have finally reached retirement…I wanted to treat myself to a good machine. I bought a model Frister & Rossmann Epochlock 0055D….the fabric detachable cutting head and easy threading system make this the best over-locker I have owned.

I traded my old machine as part exchange and got a great deal….as a seamstress for over 40 yrs I recommend LRM to anyone using domestic or indeed industrial sewing machines..great service and very fair trade…

many thanks,

Mrs   Moira Mac Loughlin Downings, Donegal.

Toyota RS 2000 full service and repair…

Hello I took my machine to LRM Sewing machines…owned by Lester Moore. There was a load of problems so rather than me giving Lester a list on a sheet of paper he told me the best way to leave the machine 100% was to fully service it so all problems would be sorted.

The best £35 ever spent…great job and a 6month warranty….thanks Lester 🙂

Full service and 12 month warranty for £35……

I rang Lester from  LRM  Sewing….to see if he could do anything with my 28 year old New Home 500 model sewing machine. He told me a full service is £35 with warranty .I left it at his work- shop in  Limavady, last Tuesday and got the phone call on Thursday to say the machine was ready for collection!


I couldn’t believe the job he made of the machine….all 8 stitch patterns sewing perfectly again & polished clean and sparkling…….excellent job…….thank you Lester or quick return and workmanship.

Replacement foot pedal for my old SINGER- 99K sewing machine

hi…My husband came across my grandmothers’ old Singer sewing machine in the attic recently when we were moving to our new house. It was in pretty good shape but looked like it needed a service? Problem was it had no electric foo pedal…we contacted Lester to see if he could possibly get a replacement  and plugin leads. Within one week we had the machine back fully serviced and brand new foot control & and plug in leads….it cost £55 …but the best money spent on a machine ever! Hopefully will remain in the family for a few more generations….thank you again Lester…..highly recommended !

Full service to my TOYOTA RS 2000 Sewing machine…

I got in touch with Lester to see if he could repair or trade in my old well used TOYOTA sewing machine .I left it in and he told he could leave it good as new for £35…complete + warranty. True to his word ..I couldn’t believe the great job he done on it! I was prepared to spend £130 on a new machine from LRM, but he told me to repair my old one…..a very good and honest sewing machine mechanic. Thank you Lester…

Frister + Rossmann 3/4 THREAD OVERLOCKER…model EPOCHLOCK 0055D

I came across  LRM Sewing machines on their  website /facebook page….I needed a robust overlocker for doing equestrian banket repairs but also curtain alterations  and general repairs. Lester invited me down to try out the new overlocker and bought it right away..brilliant machine! The generous price plus  extra gifts of scissor pack and spools + needles and of course free Tuition made this purchase an easy decision?.( A lovely coffee too during Tuition,,,…I highly recommend Lester for all your sewing requirements…he is quite a character too! Many thanks LRM Sewing Machines 🙂
