Sewing Machine & Overlocker Servicing

We are currently not taking any more machines for servicing


Due to high demand we have a turnaround of approximately 3 weeks.

We do a basic service for Sewing Machines and Overlockers which you could compare to a grease and oil change on a car - as opposed to an engine overhaul.....!

Unless you know there is something specifically wrong and/or broken most machines only require this type of service.

We open and inspect, clean and re-lubricate, check and adjust tension settings, check hook, needle arm and bobbin case and other critical bits, adjust as necessary and test sew.

We DO NOT do any electrical or electronic servicing or adjustment. Just the mechanical aspects of the machine.

If there is something actually broken then it maybe beyond the scope of our service (and my skill level!). If this is the case we would advice what we think would be the best solution and where to take it to.Depending on how much time is spent on evaluating this we may charge $10 - $15.00 fee for the advice instead of the $55.00 service fee.

Spare parts or extra work would be on top of the basic $55.00 service fee and if this was needed we would seek approval before going ahead.

Sewing machines are a reasonably complicated piece of machinery and we recommend getting them serviced regularly to keep them in top condition for years to come.

Our Basic Service is especially beneficial for:

  • Domestic Sewing Machines and Overlockers
  • Newly purchased second hand machines
  • Machines that have been stored for more than 6 months
  • Machines that have not been serviced in more than 2 years
  • Machines that for no apparent reason just suddenly won't sew correctly..........!

Due to high demand we have a turnaround of approximately 2-3 weeks. However if you need your machine urgently please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate. If you know there is something broken already then it may be better to take it elsewhere for a full repair service. 

You can drop your machine in anytime. Please make sure you include the foot controller and bobbin/bobbincase and anything else it needs to make it go. Include your thread if you want it threaded up with this when I test sew it.

We open at 10am and close at 5pm Monday to Friday and 11am to 4pm Saturday.

Address:The Sewing Depot,  47A Buick Street, Petone, Lower Hutt.  - Plenty of free on street parking.
