Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much will my sewing machine or serger cost to repair? Is it necessary to make an appointment to have it assessed?
A: The price of your repair can only be determined after the machine has been assessed by our technician, but some of our prices are listed with our services. It is not necessary to make an appointment, but you will need to leave your machine with us to be assessed, and a non-refundable estimate deposit will apply (contact us for details). We will contact you with a detailed estimate after our mechanic has assessed your machine.
Q: Can your technician come to my home to repair my machine?
A: Unfortunately, due to high demand, we do not have a technician who can make house calls. Please bring your machine to our store at Frederick Mall. If your machine is in a table, please remove the machine and leave the table at home.
Q: Does your mechanic repair industrial sewing machines?
A: Our mechanic does not repair industrial machines at this time, but we do stock industrial parts and needles.
Q: Do you do alterations or provide embroidery services?
A: No, we do not. Our goal is to set you up with the equipment and knowledge you need to complete your own sewing projects.

Q: Can I return a sewing machine?
A: We do not offer refunds on machines, but we want all of our customers to be happy with their machine purchases, so exchanges may be offered at the discretion of store management. Machine exchanges should be done as soon as possible, within 10 days of purchase. All machines brought in for exchange are subject to inspection before an exchange will be honoured. A restocking charge may be applied to open boxes. Contact us for more information.
