Welcome to Picnics Country Crafts. Located in Innisfail and part of the Cassowary Coast here in Far North Queensland. We are the authorised PFAFF, Janome and Brother sewing machine dealer and service centre here in the far north. It doesn’t matter what sewing machine or overlocker you have our fully qualified technician services all brands and can get your machine back on track.
Are you thinking of buying a new sewing machine or overlocker. Come in and talk to our friendly staff and arrange a demonstration on one of our fantastic machines. We always have great deals on our range of machines and we are sure we can find the right machine for you.
At Picnics we stock a large range of fabrics and haberdashery to meet all sewing needs. We also have wide and diverse range of threads for sewing, quilting, overlocking and embroidery.
Sewing Machine Servicing
Our service department specialise in repairing and servicing PFAFF, Husqvarna, Brother, Janome sewing and embroidery machines and overlockers. But don’t worry if you have another brand we can service that as well. On site servicing is available for those large multi needle or industrial machine that can not be moved. If you live in the Cairns, Atherton Tablelands, Mission Beach, Tully, Cardwell or anywhere north of Mackay we can get your machine sorted. So if you live out of town or you are just super busy with sewing? Well we offer a booking service where you can book your machine in for a same day service as long as parts are not required. Bookings must be made 5 days prior to the service date. If you are going to bring your machine in for servicing please remember the following.
- Foot Control
- Presser Feet
- Embroidery Hoop (for embroidery machines only)
- A sample of the how it is sewing
We always try hard to get your machines back to you as soon as possible but in most cases you will need to allow between one and two weeks.
I know you dont like to thread overlockers. Do you fight with your overlocker every time you break a thread. If this is you then have a look at the new Janome Air Thread 2000 Overlocker.
