Mike's Sewing Machine Repairs

Mike’s Sewing Machine Repairs believes in honest, up front pricing, and that you should know what your sewing machine service will cost you before you pop your machine in the car and drive on down.  We’re also proud of our pricing – well balanced to be affordable while reflecting the quality of both our servicing and our support.  Take a look at our Machine Service Price Menu, and if you’re not sure where yours fits in give us a call: 5359 7177


We no longer service Husqvarna VIKING and Pfaff machines. We believe that it is in the best interest of our customers that these models are serviced by an agent that has access to parts. For your Husqvarna VIKING please contact B’Creative at the Sunshine Coast HERE, or Ken Stumer’s at Strathpine HERE. For your Pfaff please contact Ken Stumer’s at Strathpine HERE.


Update for Christmas 2023… Thanks so much to all of our customers for choosing Mike’s for your machine servicing – we are very proud to have so many bookings! To be sure we don’t over-promise, we are estimating a 5 week wait during this crazy-busy period – this means machine’s will most likely NOT make it onto our workbench until the new year. The good news for this story is that if you use our Book and Sew service to book your machine (online or with a call) then you’ll keep your place in the queue and also keep your machine sewing at home until it’s your turn.

Don’t forget! Our Book & Sew option lets you book your sewing machine service at Mike’s but you keep your machine at home until it’s just about your turn. This means that you can keep sewing right up to when we need it! Click HERE for more info.

Smaller Machine Service: $95

These are a smaller, simple sewing machine that have no computerized components, and your buttonhole is a 4-step.  Your bobbin is tucked behind a drop-down cover at the front and is most commonly purchased from Spotlight or Lincraft.

Quilter’s Service: $170

This is a service for an overlocker with up to 4 threads. Your overlocker’s main function is to stitch seams, and has a knife to neatly trim fabric as it sews.

Combo Overlocker Service: $165

Looks like and overlocker, but with an extra spools of thread, this is a 5 to 8 thread combination overlocker and coverstitch machine that can sew seams and then chain-stitch stretch fabric hems. Also applies to Janome Combi models.

Finisher’s Service: $145

This machine is a side-kick to your overlocker. Your coverstitch machine will only do chain-stitching and hemming, and has no cutting blades.

Just Embroiderer’s Service: $165

Tweek or Inspect: $25 – $70

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.

General Info About Our Servicing

Pre book with Book & Sew - this option lets you keep sewing right up until just about the day of your service. Simply book your machine in for its service with a $25 deposit HERE (or with an easy phone call: 5359 7177) and we'll then pop your booking in the queue. When your turn getting close, we'll give you a call to bring your machine in, and then you'll only be without it for a day or so.

Or...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 – 4pm 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 the bench has a minimum fee of $15.

About our $30 – 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 and 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 4 weeks. 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 for booked services 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: 5359 7177

An important disclaimer that we are proud to make: the repair or servicing of some late models of sewing machines by Husqvarna VIKING, Pfaff and Bernina, should only be done by a technician who is a certified sales agent of these models. Because we are not reseller of these brands we don’t have this certification. We pride ourselves on our integrity and adhere to this policy within the industry. This means that there are a handful of models that we don’t service.

We no longer service Husqvarna VIKING and Pfaff machines. We believe that it is in the best interest of our customers that these models are serviced by an agent that has access to parts. For your Husqvarna VIKING please contact B'Creative at the Sunshine Coast HERE, or Ken Stumer's at Strathpine HERE. For your Pfaff please contact Ken Stumer's at Strathpine HERE.

If you are unsure about your sewing machine, please feel free to contact us before booking: 5359 7177. If we are unable to help you, we will happily direct you to someone who can.
