Our in-house technician Jeremi has decades of experience fixing sewing machines of all makes and models, is an expert on universal sewing machine workings and holds several manufacturer certifications.
Jeremi personally tests every Singer Featherweight and rebuilds each vintage sewing machine to assure your Featherweight is in top running condition. In fact, we restore our machines to better-than-new condition. It's not uncommon for the stitching speed of a Featherweight to increase by more than 25% when Jeremi is done fine-tuning.
