Our Machine Repair Service

Machine Repair Service

At Thorpe & Co we service most brands of sewing machines, embroidery machines and overlockers. 


Maarten Plooy is an expert machine technician with over 40 years’ professional experience in servicing and repair.  He regularly attends industry training to maintain the skill and knowledge required to keep up with today’s ever-changing technology.

We work hard to have your machine repaired or serviced as quickly as possible and for those who live in remote areas or cannot make it into the store there are courier services available at very reasonable costs.

For more information or an estimate of price, please contact the store on

(02) 4929 4456 or email us at


We work on the basis that your machine is just as important to you as someone else’s machine is to them so there may be a small wait time for your machine to be serviced.
