A happy sewing machine is the key to successful sewing. Just like your vehicle, your sewing machine requires periodic care and maintenance. Professional maintenance will extend the life of your machine by giving it a thorough cleaning, oiling, and tune up. Occasionally, parts wear down and need replacement. You know when your machine is not working properly—constant jamming, skipped stitches, tension issues and noisy operation mean it's time for some TLC.

Stitch Lab has conveniently offered machine service and repair for a few years now, but we have to discontinue this service, unfortunately. As of January 1, 2017, walk-in drop-offs will no longer be accepted at Stitch Lab. Instead, Vanessa will offer this service as part of her custom sewing business, Ronkita Design! She's set up a system that enables the client (that's you!) to schedule a diagnostic appointment with her. This gives you the chance to speak directly to her and discuss the nature of your machine's problem. This system will also create a faster turn around time. Rather than waiting 2-3 weeks, your machine will likely be ready within 7-10 days!

Please visit the Sewing Machine & Serger Service/Repair page on Vanessa's Ronkita website to learn more, and to schedule an appointment when you need machine service. You can also email Vanessa directly with questions at Thanks SEW much!
