Keeping your sewing machine in excellent condition is vital to a happy sewing experience. If your machine is feeling a bit out of sorts, let us help you get it back on track! Each service includes a cleaning, adjustment and lubrication according to the manufacturer's specifications. Our certified technicians take the time to understand the root cause of the issues that you may be experiencing with your machine, so you can rest easy knowing that your machine is in good hands.


What brands of machines do we service?








Why is it important to have your machine serviced by a certified technician?

Baby Lock, Brother and HandiQuilter each have their own specifications for adjustment and lubrication that keep your machine in the ideal shape for the best user experience. Having access to genuine parts and service manuals is a vital part of keeping your machine in its best condition, and only your certified technicians and retailers have access to these manuals.


Do we service brands other than those we carry?

We primarily service the brands that we sell in an effort to offer the best and most honest service to our customers. In addition to our in-house certified technicians, we do contract with an outside technician who services mechanical-only machines of all brands.


What does service include?
Every Baby Lock and Brother sewing and embroidery machine is inspected through a 42-point process in accordance with the service manuals. Each HandiQuilter long arm is inspected according to the service manual. For all machines, we check things such as mechanical adjustments and tolerances, electronic connections and settings, as well as cleaning and lubrication. Each machine is tested thoroughly before being released back to you.


How much does service cost?
Our service pricing is competitive in the market. Base labor is a flat rate based on the make and model of your machine. If required, labor above and beyond the standard service is additional. If required, parts are additional. Please call us for an estimate on your machine service.
