How much do you use your sewing machine? Sewing machines need to be serviced every once in a while just like anything else. Depending on how often it is used, we suggest a sewing machine should be serviced every 1 – 3 years. Some machines even seize if they are sitting for a long time as their lubricants and oils dry up. Our general services include adjusting the timing, tension, and stitch balance if applicable, cleaning the lint and sticky residue, and oiling the required parts. We give a year warranty on all of the services we do.
