Cleanings, tune-ups and repairs for domestic sewing machines and sergers

All Sewing Machines need a little lovin' from time to time. Just like your vehicle, you need to take care of your machine, so your machine will take care of you! It's a good idea to have your machine serviced by a professional on an annual basis to ensure a long life for your machine. The older your machine, the more important taking care of it becomes.

Schedule service

How it works

Schedule an appointment at one of the several locations around Austin. I will meet you in person to diagnose the problem you may be experiencing with your machine, or if you want to drop it off for a full-service update to keep it running in tip-top shape. If you're experiencing a problem and it can't be fixed during the diagnostic, I will provide a recommendation and estimate for additional servicing. A non-refundable diagnostic fee is required to schedule an appointment.

If you want to proceed with full-service after the diagnostic, this includes:

Complete inspection of the machine, and a review of all major components to ensure they're functioning properly
Lube moving parts that require oiling to ensure they run smoothly, and the removal and replacement of old grease
Removal of dust and debris that can prevent your machine from running efficiently or even lead to major problems later
Minor Repairs
Adjustment of major components to make sure they're functioning as they should, filing out nicks, replacing worn out springs or screws, and other minor fixes

Most machines are returned in 7-10 days after servicing. 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!

Types of Machines Serviced

Ronkita services just about any make/model of 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 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?

About the Technician

Vanessa was the machine service technician at the Stitch Lab and performed all of the cleanings, repairs and maintenance. She has worked on hundreds of 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.

Quick Fix Tips

If your machine is giving you trouble, try these quick fix tips when stuck:

  • Change out your needle.
  • Make sure your needle is inserted in the correct direction and pushed up as far as needed. Always refer to your user manual for directions.
  • Use good quality sewing thread. Old, deteriorated or poor quality thread can cause all kinds of issues. If it's on a wooden spool, it should be used as decoration only.
