Beth's Sewing Machine Service Center


You love your machine and at Beth's Creative Stitchery, we get that! We sew, too! And, we want your machine to run at its peek performance so you won't miss a stitch!

Unlike most, we specialize in the "whole machine" approach. We don't just address an issue, but see the entire picture. Hooks are removed and cleaned. Upgrades are done. The most current software is loaded. Special test performed. Tensions checked. Stitches balanced. The proper tools and gauges are used to adjust your machine to the Swiss specs. A detailed log is kept on your machine for future reference. Only original BERNINA replacement parts are used. All this experience AND a full year warranty on the repair.

This comes from 39 years of love and respect for the BERNINA product and an attention taken to detail.


We service machines based on "first in, first service". You are not required to make an appointment and machines can be brought in anytime during our operating hours. For MOST current models, all we need is your machine and the bobbin case. For sergers and machine that were born in the 70's and the 80's, we will also need your power cord and foot control. Bring items you might be having an issue with, as well.

When your machine is checked in for serving, we will do our best to give you an estimated time of completion.
