Machine Service & Repair

Do you have a machine that hasn’t been used for awhile? Or do you have a great machine that all of a sudden doesn’t feel the way it normally feels?  Given a used machine that needs a check-up and some loving care?

You may drop off your machine anytime during regular business hours and it will be looked at in the order in which it was received. Service times are dependent upon how many machines are in the service que and vary.

Please note the following:

We kindly ask that you DO NOT bring us the following items:

fabric covers, fabric totes, machine manuals, free arm levers (unless an issue with the free arm) or machine accessory cases, serger trim traps 

Repair pricing depends upon the sewing machine or serger that you are bringing to us....there is a HUGE difference in the amount of time it takes for maintenance on a basic mechanical machine VS a top-of-the-line sewing and embroidery machine.

Repair costs begin as listed below, however, we will discuss additional costs with you prior to fixing your machine.

Sewing Lane repairs most makes and models of sewing machines and sergers.

SPOT CHECK (Sewing Machine or Serger)     $50.00
This will generally address small issues such as tension issues or threading difficulties on your sewing machine or serger.
A spot check MUST be performed prior to entering the machine into the service que

$110/ hour labor (billed at 15 min increments)
Minimum charge will be $110.00 plus parts

This is our recommendation for the longevity and performance of your sewing machine or serger. Think of it this way, everyone appreciates that their machines are running perfectly when you have a chance to sit and sew…. Why have added pressure and frustration from a machine that is not working properly. It is why we keep investing in service training and are here to help keep those machines purring!

Full machine maintenance is included for the 1st year of machine ownership if it was purchased from Sewing Lane. It is recommended that this type of service is completed every 3 – 4 years if you are stitching constantly.
