Importance of Regular Maintenance
A well-maintained sewing machine is an investment that needs regular maintenance to extend the life of the machine. Sewing manufacturers recommend that you have your machine serviced at least once a year by a certified dealer. Our certified technicians will make sure that everything is working correctly on your machine including timing, tension, stitch balance, buttonholes, and many more settings as well as clean and check the entire machine. We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of customer service and quality care to your machine regularly. Between maintenance checks, it’s important to remember to properly lubricate your machine based on manufacturers’ recommendations and change needles regularly to prevent wear and tear.
