Is it worth it?
I often meet people that have inherited a sewing machine passed on from a loved one, or a customer that finds what they think to be a great treasure for dollars at a yard sale. What I've discovered is that most assume it's expensive to restore a machine or impossible to bring a rough one back to life. In most cases, this isn't true!
If you are considering enrolling in our Vintage Sewing Machine Mastery program to restore a machine, keep your personal machines well-maintained, or want to find machines at yard sales to restore and resell, I can understand being hesitant, not knowing how much work or investment will go into the machine.
We are offering you a FREE consultation on your sewing machine!
This is a $50 value item, FOR FREE!
Let us give you an initial evaluation of how much work the machine will need, and we can alert you to any major concerns or missing parts that will need to be replaced. We'll even give you an estimate of what it would cost to have it restored in our shop versus the investment in the workshop!
How it works
This can be a machine you already have or one you are thinking of acquiring. We'll even look at eBay or Marketplace listings for you if you'd like an unbiased opinion about the machine and its potential.

A few things to keep in mind:
We teach ONLY the restoration of the sewing machine itself, not the wooden cabinet or base that it may be in. We do offer tips on improving the wood components and we do teach care and maintenance on treadle irons, but we do not cover full restoration of the cabinet.
We do not cover stripping down the paint and clear coat off of a machine and repainting. We do cover how to preserve the machine in its current state and to stop further damage or deterioration.
