How to Find the Right Sewing Machine Repair Shop
I have been sewing for many years and I can do minor repairs on my sewing machines but if my sewing machines need more than I can take care of I get it right away out to a sewing machine repair shop Kingdom Sewing and Vacuum Center in Northridge California. This store carries my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen and my Husqvarna/Viking sewing machines. If you buy your machine at the same place that repairs them they will be able to do all of the warranty work that comes up.
One of the most important reasons I support small store such as this one is they have an in store repair man on staff every day that they are open. What this means for me is if a repair is needed it will take 2-3 days for most repairs instead of the stores that have to ship the machines to another location which takes 2-3 weeks depending on the problem you have. They will be able to give you an approximate price quickly without the wait as well.
Kingdom Sewing Center doesn’t sell every brand of sewing machine out there therefore I would find a store that sells your brand of sewing machine. Warranty repairs and accessories for your sewing machines are another excellent reason to find the sewing center that has your preferred brand. I have had Husqvarna/Viking sewing machines for almost 40 years. My Handi Quilter is about 2 years old that came from this store.
If you have a sewing machine that you didn’t buy from your local store you can take classes like I did at Kingdom Sewing Center for my very old serger sewing machine. The class was very informative and I used my machine so I would know more about it. I am actually thinking of buying a new one the next time there is a sale going on the machine I want.
With my new Husqvarna/Viking Opal I can take classes for free but I do have to sign up on the dates that are available. These classes fill up fast.
Stores like Kingdom Sewing Center in Northridge and Simi Valley California and the Denton Sewing Center, Denton Texas also work on vintage sewing machines like the Singer Featherweight that both my sister Kim and I have.
Finding the local sewing machine repair shop is made very easy with internet access. I recommend you find a store close to where you live and you will have a long relationship with your machine working in tip top form for years to come.
