Hi everyone. My Brother XR-65 sewing machine has been due for a tune up for a few months and today my stitch length dial went of the fritz. Sad
 I started looking online for sewing machine repair shops, but noticed that a number in the DC area seem to only speak Spanish... which i do not speak well enough to communicate.
I am fairly new to the world of sewing machines... so I don't really know the ins and outs of getting a machine repaired.. so i was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
I would love it if it was Metro accessible, but if not I'll just have to suck it up and find some way there.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
thanks Smiley

There's a sewing machine repair guy at the Hancock Fabrics at New Hampshire Ave and University Blvd. You can catch the K6 bus there from Fort Totten Station. He's there every Friday, and I think he gives free repair quotes.
