    Parisi's Sewing Machine
    I brought in a sewing machine I bought online. He was upfront and very honest. It was plastic and cheap (all the newer ones are!!) He told me he'd look at it and if it was worth a certain amount of money, he'd fix it...otherwise, he'd call me to come and fetch it! He actually got it running but it wasn't worth it, so he found me an older, better one that I was able to purchase from him. I recommend him so very highly!!

    Parisi's Sewing Machine
    This sewing repair shop is a hidden gem for anyone who sews.  He knows his machines and values keeping the old ones running! I'd never had my machine serviced in all the time I've owned it, and he said it's ready to run for another 60 years.  He was even customizing a sewing machine for someone to be able to hand crank on a boat out at sea for sail repair!

    Mr Sweeper Sales & Repairs
    Because of the large variety of sewing machines available to look at and try out, I went to Mr. Sweeper and Vac. The saleswomen took the time to listen to what I needed in a sewing machine and steered me towards models that would fit my needs. I found their prices to be competitive with both other stores and online vendors.

    JNB SEW & VAC
    Very thorough, efficient, professional analysis of the problem with my 20-year-old vacuum cleaner.  Pedro conducted tests on-the-spot the moment I walked in the door, and determined that the vacuum was effectively beyond repair and would not be cost-effective to fix.  He then demonstrated a replacement model [of the same brand], and it's features were so impressive that I bought it on the spot.  The price included not only a a trade-in discount, but also the discount featured in an on-going sale.  Not only that, but Pedro allowed me to exchange my old surplus vacuum bags free-of-charge for ones that would work with the new model.  Really superb service that perfetcly suited my needs and my budget.

    Mr Sweeper Sales & Repairs
    We arrived at the West Roxbury shop and were greeted by the salesperson, who immediately guessed that we had a burned-out belt. He took the vacuum and confirmed this- showing us the damaged belt. He replaced the belt (there might have been two) in less than 10 minutes and we were on our way. The total cost was about $22 for the new belt and the labor. He was extremely helpful, courteous, and efficient. I was so glad to have the problem solved so easily! The shop is nice and offers a number of vacuums and sewing machines and accessories. I happily recommend this provider and would visit the shop again for any repairs or even to buy a new vacuum.

    MARIE'S SEWING CENTER
    Every couple of years my serger needs repairing. In the past I have had to find out-of-the-way sewing machine dealers and pay about $250 for the service. Marie's Sewing Center is in a major shopping center, convenient to the highway. The cost was half of what I am used to paying and the service was excellent. I would use them again any time.

    Mr Sweeper Sales & Repairs
    The Singer machine needed service after I made the mistake of trying to sew through adhesive Velcro, which caused tangles and ultimately messed up the tension setting. The provider gave me an immediate estimate, and notified me within a week that the machine was ready for pickup. I then brought my much sturdier Pfaff machine, which had gradually developed more and more tension problems (it had been many years since it had been professionally serviced). For this also, an immediate estimate was offered, and this work was completed within ten days (the time included the Thanksgiving holiday). The Pfaff repair was more expensive, but more work was involved. Note to future customers: bring your own thread and filled bobbin for your machine. With my first machine, it happened to be on the machine. This meant that he could do a trial run while I was there to predict what would be needed to get it running well. With the second machine, I didn't bring it threaded, as I expected to have it thoroughly serviced anyway. Since he needed to use a bobbin to test his repair, I was sold a set of bobbins. No problem really, as you can always use more.  I was impressed with his promptness and professionalism.

    Easy Housekeeping Shops Inc.
    I called prior to heading down to be sure that they would be able to service my machine (an older Bernina). My questions were answered quickly and completely, so I brought my machine down the next day. It should be noted that they have plenty of parking in back of the building, and the building entrance to the business entrance is in the rear. The driveway is to the left of the building as you face it from the street, but the traffic pattern makes it tough to make a left turn into their driveway (I turned around in the parking lot of the convenience store next to them). Once I got my machine there, service was quick, professional and friendly. I was given a price for service and was further told that if there were any other issues (something broken) I would be contacted before any additional work was done. As it turned out, I only needed a general service which was completed in less than a week for the price stated. They even carried my machine out to my truck and helped to secure it to make sure it wouldn't be damaged in transit. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

    Parisi's Sewing Machine
    I called up to get directions and confirms hours of operation.  Prior to contacting this provider I had contacted the manufacturer's repair service and was quoted a much higher price as well several weeks before the repair could be done.  The owner answered the phone in a friendly, reassuring voice.  He quoted a price and stated that the repair, cleaning, and tune-up could be done in about one hour.  When I arrived, the owner did not try to sell me a more expensive item, but remarked what a good machine it was and how well  it was constructed.  30 minutes later, my machine was fixed, an explanation was given as to what caused the problem.  Additionally, he demonstrated how all the stitching was just as if I had a brand new machine.  He said that this servicing would last for years and recommended that I only use metal bobbins. I was very pleased, and happy that I did not have to buy a new machine that might have new technology, but made of less sturdy material.  I would highly use this company again and without hesitation recommend them

    SEWING & VACUUM CENTER
    I went into the store expecting to have to leave my machine for several days, if not a week. Instead, the gentleman working looked at it right away, discovered and fixed the problem, and didn't charge me! He also gave me advice on the best size/shape bobbin to use. I was in and out in 5 minutes, and thrilled to be taking my machine back with me.
