Haven’t sewn in a while? Got a new hand-me-down? Sewing up a storm and notice something not right? Want to take a sewing class with an old machine? It could be time for a tune up.
We love sewing and we know you do too. To keep the wheels turning and the footer pressed it takes a little love.
Sewing machine service and repair is important. We’ve got you covered.
When should I have my sewing machine serviced?
That depends on how much you sew with it. If you are sewing about 2 to 3 times a week, you should get your machine serviced at least every 12 months.
If your machine was sitting around unused for a while, servicing it is a good idea as well before you use it again.
What does a sewing machine service mean?
A professional sewing machine service will often fix the typical issues like poor tension, loud machine and other nagging problems while sewing.
Your machine will get a proper clean inside out, lubrication, general health check of the insides like gears, belt and hock & race and so on.
While the machine needs a regular service, some problems are user error (don’t be embarrassed, totally normal). When you pick up your machine after the sewing machine service, I am happy to sit with you for a few minutes and address the problem you have had.
What should I bring when I drop off for my sewing machine service?
- your cover (if you have one)
- your foot pedal and power cord (this is important so we can test the machine before and after the sewing machine service)
- the accessories your machine came with, like special screwdrivers, at least one bobbin, tweezers and machine feet
- your carry case or protective cover
- your foot pedal and power cord (this is important so we can test the machine before and after the service)
- the accessories your machine came with, like special screwdrivers, at least one bobbin, tweezers and machine fee
- for embroidery machines: the embroidery arm, a hoop and bobbin
- for overlockers/sergers: the thread that you are usually using, your tweezers and special screwdrivers
