How to Order
It's very easy to order any item from our website. First of all, we have a real shop staffed by real people and we are open Monday to Saturday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. So you can phone us and order any item you've seen on our site over the phone.
You could even do what Dad says, get on your bike and come into the shop to buy.
Order Before 1pm
If we receive and then process your order, for a new sewing machine or overlocker, before 1pm we can usually guarantee next day delivery.
We offer free delivery on new sewing machines, overlockers and most Horn cabinets.
1 Hour Delivery
We use DPD to deliver new sewing machines & overlockers. If you provide us with your mobile telephone number we will pass it it on to DPD so they can text you when they expect to make the delivery. They normally provide you with a 'hour window' (e.g.. between 2pm-3pm). This means you don't have to stay in all day long waiting for your delivery.
Roy Bamber started our family business back in 1946 when, as a boy in Salford, he climbed to the top of a large bombsite and rescued an old sewing machine. He took it home and repaired it and then sold it. So began Bamber Sewing Machines. His two sons, Alan & Steve, run the show these days but we couldn't have asked for a better teacher.
Price matching is all the go, these days. If you do see a better deal than the one we're offering you, please let us know. If we can, we will match a genuine offer or maybe even beat it.
Ordering from the website is also very easy and offers extra benefits. Under each item shown on our site you will see the quantity and 'Buy' boxes.
