From time to time, we hold in-person vintage sewing machine maintenance seminars. The goal of these seminars are to give you the skills to maintain your machine yourself. To participate in these seminars, you will require some basic tools and materials and a vintage sewing machine (note- if you do not have a machine, one can be loaned to you , if I have one available).
Note that there will be a small fee to cover facility rental and supplies. There is also an expectation that participants will pay it forward and volunteer in the community.
Note that while masks are not mandatory we request that participants wear one when social distancing cannot be maintained.
Note- these are not repair clinics. You will work on your machine yourself with the help of the facilitators. While we can do some basics checks and fixes on your machines, we cannot do any major repairs, including repairs to electrical, motors or major components. If you machine requires electrical or motor repair, it’s recommended that you take it to a qualified technician in advance of the seminar to have these issues addressed.
