How it works

Get your sewing machine serviced quickly in 3 easy steps:

1) Schedule Appointment

Schedule an appointment at one of the four locations around Austin.

A non-refundable fee is required to schedule the appointment to review a problem you're experiencing or to drop your sewing machine off for a full-service cleaning. Walk-ins are not available.

2) In-Person Diagnostic

At your appointment I'll review the problem you're experiencing or the service you want performed.

If you're experiencing a problem and it can't be fixed during the diagnostic, I'll provide a recommendation and estimate for additional servicing.

3) Machine Serviced

Most sewing machines that need servicing are returned in 7-10 days.

In order to provide this very quick turn-time a limited number of slots are available each week for service, so schedule an appointment as soon as possible!

She has worked on hundreds of sewing machines, gaining intimate knowledge of the mechanics and performance of various makes/models, and likes to be able to share this information with clients and students so they can get the most out of their machine.

Types of Machines Serviced

We service just about any domestic sewing machine and serger, vintage and new - Singer, Bernina, Janome, Kenmore, Brother, Juki, Pfaff, Husqvarna, White, Baby Lock and more. If you have a digital sewing machine, these can also be serviced to tune up, clean or replace mechanical parts as needed, however, if the issue you're experiencing is related to the digital or electrical components, then you will need to have your machine serviced by the manufacturer or a local dealer.

Is your machine in a desk, or an industrial machine?

Do you have more than one machine that needs servicing?
