At Creative Sewing & Quilting, we offer maintenance and repair services for all makes and models of sewing machines, embroidery machines, quilting machines, and sergers. Your machines are serviced on-site at our store, eliminating the time and cost of sending your machine out for repair.

We recommend regular tune-ups for your machine to help keep it in good running order for as long as possible. If you regularly use your machine, it is best to have it professionally maintained every one to two years.

Our full service tune-ups include the following:

  • clean and delint machine
  • compressed air cleaning
  • oil bushings
  • balance tensions
  • position finger bracket
  • change needle
  • hook to needle clearance adjustment
  • hook to needle timing adjustment
  • presser bar height and tension adjustment
  • top feeding foot height adjustment
  • feed dogs height adjustment
  • zero feed regulator adjustment
  • feeding motion adjustment
  • presser foot tension adjustment
  • bobbin winder adjustment
  • checking seating of upper and lower shafts
  • motor belt adjustment
  • bobbin tire adjustment
  • needle threader adjustment
  • exterior cleaning
  • thorough test sew to ensure optimum stitch performance

Creative Sewing & Quilting has a long history of providing friendly and knowledgeable machine maintenance. Our technicians, Eric & Grant Flyte, are proud to continue this tradition of excellent service.

Both brothers learned their trade from their father, Joe Flyte, who provided expert machine service at Creative Sewing for nearly 20 years. Joe's presence has been deeply missed since his sudden death of a heart attack in April 2015, but the Flyte family is proud to continue offering the professional care that has always been a hallmark of his work.

Feel free to call us with any questions about machine maintenance or bring your machine in for service during our business hours. You can rest assured it will be in good hands!

COVID-19 Service Update
Typically, we do machine servicing on all makes and models of machines. However, due to the impact of coronavirus, we are not able to accept any machines for repair at this time. 

We are operating with a smaller staff and are "all hands on deck" with trying to keep the business operating as smoothly as possible (including cutting fabric for face masks and other phone orders). We also already have a line of machines that are waiting to be serviced. 

We want to give you a reasonable time frame of when we can service your machine, but at this time we are not able to confidently schedule appointments. We will continue to assess our repair abilities as time goes on, but we may not be back to regular capacity until after the shelter-in-place order is lifted. If your machine is still operational, it would be best to wait a little longer for your standard machine cleanings.

We are sorry for the inconvenience! In the meantime, you may want to consider purchasing a back-up sewing machine that can get you through any time-sensitive projects.
