Our servicemen are trained and certified to perform all maintenance and warranty work plus full service on all makes and models of machines. It isn’t necessary for sewing machine technicians to be certified, but if you’re comparison shopping, it is advisable to ask for the credentials and experience of those to whom you entrust your machine, before irreparable damage is done.
The Myth of the $50 Tune-Up
Many shops offer a basic “clean and oil” tune-up. Any adjustments, even minor ones to the timing (there are four different timings on a sewing machine) or resetting tensions in your machine will mean additional fees, so that the basic $50 tune-up eventually costs well over $100. Often, shops with untrained or uncertified technicians will send your machine out to someone else for these adjustments and charge an extra handling fee for that service. And because the machine has only been “tuned up,” the guarantee is either not offered or very limited in scope.
