Machine Service Menu
Mender’s Sewing Machine Service
A smaller, simple sewing machine that has no computerized components, and your buttonhole is a 4-step. Your bobbin is tucked behind a drop-down cover at the front and it can’t be seen through the needle plate. Most commonly purchased from Spotlight or Lincraft.
All-Rounder Sewing Machine Service
A standard sized, more durable machine, with or without computerised stitch selections. You might be able to see your bobbin through your needle-plate and you may have some beautiful decorative stitches.
Quilter’s Sewing Machine Service
Your machine is more powerful than the average, usually with a wider sewing space, and extra quilter’s favourite functions. You may have a built-in even feed system or often use a walking foot, and your LCD screen is usually larger and often is a touch screen.
Embroiderer’s Sewing Machine Service
The perfect trio – an All-Rounder, PLUS a Quilter, PLUS Embroidery functions. This is a sewing and embroidery machine with Quilter Sewing Machine Functions, and will have an embroidery arm and an embroidery hoop, and uses Wi-Fi, memory cards, or a USB stick to load designs.
Seam-Stitcher’s Overlocker Service
You might also hear this one called a SERGER, your overlocker is 3 or 4 threads and can only stitch seams, neatly trimming fabric as it sews.
Dressmaker’s Overlocker Service
Looks like and overlocker, but with an extra spool of thread, yours is a 5 thread coverstitch and overlocker combination machine that can sew seams and then chain-stitch stretch fabric hems.
Finisher’s Coverstitch Machine
A side-kick to your overlocker, your coverstitch machine will only do chain-stitch and hemming, and has no cutting blades.
Just Embroiderer’s Machine Service
Looks like an Embroiderer’s Sewing Machine, but this one doesn’t do any sewing other than embroidery in the hoop. Typically, yours has no foot control, and uses memory cards or a USB stick to load designs.
Maybe a Tweak? Inspect and Quote
Had a little hic-cup, but you don’t think that you need a service? Book your machine in for an inspection and estimate to fix. Once you give the go-ahead, your deposit will come off your finished bill. This also includes insurance quotes.
Just pop in – drop in with your sewing machine for its service, and pack some accessories (Click HERE for a list of what you’ll need). We are open 9am – 5pm Tuesday to Friday; 9am to Noon Saturday, and we can carry your machine from your car if you need us to.
On-the-spot-help – we are always happy to have a quick look at your machine when you bring it to us and sometimes, to get you sewing faster, we can fix it while you wait. Please note that on-the-spot work that goes on Mike’s bench has a minimum fee of $15.
About our prices – when booking we always allow an extra $30 window for small parts or extra labour that we may discover that you need during the course of your service. Anything greater than this additional amount – we will call you first, because we believe that you should always know what your repair will cost BEFORE the work is done.
We ask for a $25 deposit for all bookings, and this will come off of the price of your service or repair once completed. Sometimes your repair estimate may be much higher than is cost effective, or your machine may be beyond a repair. In this instances, your deposit will be used to cover the cost of inspecting and testing your machine.
Turn-around is usually 10 weekdays. We understand that you are going to miss your machine while it is here with us, and we’ll strive to get it back to you as soon as possible. If you find yourself needing to keep on sewing, we are happy to offer you a courtesy machine at no charge (where available). Got lots of sewing to do and can’t be without your machine? Take us up on our Book & Sew offer Click HERE to book online, or give us a call: 0417 649 685
An important disclaimer that we are proud to make: the repair or servicing of some late models of embroidery machines and quilter’s sewing machines can only be done by a technician who is a certified technician AND sales agent of these models. Not being sewing machine dealers in any way, we don’t have this certification and because we pride ourselves on our integrity, we adhere to this policy within the industry. This means that there are a handful of models that we don’t service. If you are unsure about yours, please feel free to contact us before visiting. If we are unable to help you, we will happily direct you to someone who is able to do so. We strongly recommend that for these models, to protect your warranty, you should only take them to a certified dealer.
