Anyone in Houston know of a reliable sewing machine repair shop?   I work in the downtown area and live in the Hobby area so preferably something on the S/SE side.  I know the place my work uses is good and they're in the Heights but I'd like to see if I can find someplace closer to home.

thanks!

not sure if this applies to you but,

I've noticed a lot of ppl who say their sewing machines not working, don't know how to operate it properly. I.e. how to set the tension etc.
Also it's important to read your manual and oil it accordingly.

that is so very true!  I had an instructor who always said that most machine problems are due to operator error.  the machines I need to have repaired are beyond my help. one has timing issues and the other has a problem with the motor but they are good machines, Bernina and Pfaff, so I hope they'll be worth the cost of repair (I got them for free).

thanks,

I took in my singer for repair yesteray. It's an old shoemakers sewing machine. It can sew in any dirrection (you can swivel the feed foot) I've had this machine for a long time and it's never sewed properly. I got it back and it sews well now. He said that the timing was off.

good luck in your search
