Sewing Machine Servicing

We have been looking for a new person to service our sewing machines, a Pfaff and a Singer, as the shop we usually use in Guéret has closed.

I have heard there is a man at one of the markets, has anyone spotted him?

Nothing in the Creuse any more, But there are Singer repairers and servicers in Palais sur Vienne near Limoges, Chateauroux, Bourges, Moulins and Montlucon, whatever the nearest to you may be. So you have some travel to consider. I service ours myself.

Can't help thinking if you gave some idea of your location in your profile, then it might give readers an idea of where you might be looking.

If you were in the UK, I might be able to help in sourcing a professional, but no doubt you would also be able to do that.

Yes Brian you are correct, and the thing is it's me that's always saying why don't they say where they are.

Regarding the markets, La Croisille market (haute vienne) on the 18th of every month, I remember seeing a singer sewing machine repair man. In fact I think I have seen one in Bourganeuf in the summer markets.

A sewing machine chap comes to Chénérailles market (the days it is held are complicated, you would probably need to look them up on Google as there is a formula for the days which has so many exceptions that they are unmemorable) and especially the two annual horse fairs. I'm afraid I don't know his name.

PS: I've just Googled "Chénérailles marché" and was really annoyed to find on the site for the markets of France: "Il n'y a pas de marché sur la commune de Chénérailles, voici les marché les plus proches", which is utter rubbish! There has been a market in Chénérailles for centuries.

PPS: One for Creusebear: "Why isn't it "voici les marchés les plus proches"?

Hi
There is a chap that sells new and reconditioned sewing machines on Felletin market. I am sure he does repairs/service. It is on a Friday morning. However he may not be there every week. The market is well worth a visit anyway as it is the best one around.
