If you are ordering machines or large items likely to be dispatched by carrier, please make sure there will be someone available at your address to receive the delivery.  If you have special delivery requirements, please contact us prior to placing any order.

UK Offshore Addresses, Scottish Highlands and Ireland

We currently dispatch to these destinations at no additional cost but extended delivery schedules may apply.  Small packages, in the UK are usually unaffected but machines will take an additional 1-2 working days (depending on location). 

Other Non-UK Addresses

If you are intending to order from outside of the UK please contact us first, as certain restrictions apply to the sale of some brands / models in other areas.  Also, the delivery af any item to a non-UK address is not likely to be included within the price quoted on this site. 

We do not supply Janome branded sewing machines or overlockers to customers residing outside the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The warranty on Janome products sold by ourselves is limited to these territories.

Delivery Schedules

We aim to keep as many of the products available on our site as possible in stock for immediate dispatch.  However, from time to time, some items may be out of stock or be temporarily unavailable.  We will quote as realistic a delivery schedule as we can when confirming your order and will always attempt to update you if additional information comes to light.  We do therefore appreciate orders displaying both email and telephone contact details, so that we can make sure customers are kept well informed - if you have typed your email address incorrectly for example and not provided a telephone number, we will have no way of contacting you quickly in the event of there being a problem with your order.  Please rest assured that we do not use personal information for any reason other than processing orders and providing related information.  For full details on data handling, please refer to the privacy policy section via the link at the foot of this page.
