Description of Work
They checked over my sewing machine and tightened a couple of things while I waited- for no cost. I purchased a couple of accessories for my machine at the same time. I have used these folks for 16 years to repair and replace my sewing machines and vacuum cleaners and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Took my portable sewing machine in for service as it was not working well. Seems I had forgotten how to properly thread it. Was taught the right way, was sent off with working machine and no charge.

I took my machine into the Beaverton location on a Friday afternoon, having found that it was a Janome authorized service center. The bobbin threads were tangling up when I sewed making it almost impossible to use the machine. The service guy immediately went to work on the machine, while I waited, checked the settings and determined that two parts needed to be replaced. One part he found and the other was in another store location. He phoned and made arrangements for the part to be delivered to the store and it arrived the next day which was Saturday. I took the machine back in and the same fellow remembered me and the parts, located the parts and installed them. Then he checked the machine to make sure it was sewing properly. I was very happy with the cheerful, helpful attitude of all the staff I encountered, not just the man at the service desk. I had multiple offers for help carrying the machine back to the car. They didn't charge for any service, just the cost of the parts. I was really impressed and would certainly recommend anyone to take their sewing machine there for service.

Description of Work
They looked over my Janome sewing machine, determined that it needed two parts replaced, found one part and ordered the second. A day later they called to say the part was in. The new parts were installed and the machine checked again. The only charge was for the two parts that they replaced.

Description of Work
My aging Singer sewing machine had decided not to have its bobbin work, plus somehow in moving it I had lost the tension knob. They cleaned and oiled it, replaced the tension knob, and got it working great. On time and as promised.

It went well. I also took it back a few days ago because it didn't seem to be working right, and right on the spot they helped me figure out what was wrong (not threaded correctly).

Description of Work
I bought a New Home sewing machine at a garage sale and took it in to be serviced for what ever it needed. They cleaned and oiled it and did a good job. I am new to the sewing world, so I don't know how much that should cost. They said they were very busy and it'd be 2 weeks, but it turned out to be a week or so.

I liked that they are there from a long time in service as my mom also has gone there. They had a coupon so it ended up being $110 which I found was pretty standard across the street. They have hours seven days a week which was important because I could go only in the weekends. They had knowledgeable repairmen right on there that can take a look at it and kind of give you an idea as to what was involved. They don't repair on the spot though and I had to leave it there. They said that it would take 10days but called me earlier and said that it was ready. They called and said that there was something else to do but didn't do as it would cost more and I liked that because they didn't go more than the estimate and do more than agreed upon work. It was a fair price. The quality was great and fine. I had brought the machine from them in the first place.
