Machines: Free courier delivery

Lords Sewing offer a personal demonstration and quality service to customers at Oswaldtwistle Mills and we attempt to offer a personal mail-order service for machines available on-line and by telephone. Postage/Carriage for these items are free of charge.

**Machines from stock are sent overnight for Next Working Day delivery in most instances if ordered before noon. Some models of machines have to be ordered by us from Brother on your behalf due to supply shortages which will then be sent to you when we have received your product on a Next Working Day service (at no cost) by arrangement at your convenience. 

Brother XP3 and PR models have a 5 to 7 day lead time due to their size and weight.

For Scottish Highlands we can only supply new machines over £300 in value. We currently don't deliver machines to Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland or Overseas.

Accessories and Consumables

We will attempt to send out your order on the same day if received by us before 12 noon. Small, letter-size packets are sent First Class and should arrive within 1-3 working days. Heavier or expensive items may be sent via Next Working Day Courier and require a signature. Outlying areas need to allow for slightly longer delivery times.
