Empowering you to do it yourself

For far too long, the sewing machine service industry has been controlled by a limited few, and designed to keep you in a vulnerable position. It's time to shift this paradigm and put you in control.

Currently there aren’t any vocational schools, colleges, or full-scale programs that teach sewing machine service and repair.
 

Dealers are the main source for service, and their business model is to sell you a new machine rather than fix the one you love.
 

You may even have to drive for hours just to find a service person or dealer and wait for weeks or months for service.
 

Our workshops are designed to give you as little or as much as you desire! Whether you wish to start your own business or just learn to work on your own machines, you will learn the same procedures used in the Sewing Doc professional service shop.

We are rolling out our REMOVE YOUR COVERS on demand workshops so that you can properly remove the covers, clean, lubricate, and keep your modern sewing machine running.

(I promise you, this is way more than taking the needle plate off and cleaning around the bobbin case!)
