    Twice Nice Sewing Machine Store
    I called the Antioch store and explained that I wanted to get my very old Domestic sewing machine restored. The machine more than 65 years old. Since I live in Fremont, the owner suggested I contact his father Tom, who also lives in Fremont. I delivered the machine to Tom's house. Tom tuned up the machine, made some required repairs and part replacements and also gave me tips about how to maintain the machine. He gave me copies of some pages from the owner's manual. Machine runs great now. Basic service was $59, the extra charges were for parts. Twice Nice will definitely definitely will have my business in the future.

    Viking Sewing Machine Center
    They fixed the broken part, oiled the machine, and it was ready in 2 days as promised. They even carried it to my car! The price was about what I expected.

    Sears Home Services
    THE SEARS SERVICE CENTER WAS VERY FAST IN THE FIXING OF THE APPLIANCE AND IT TURNED OUT WORKING GREAT. THERE WAS LITTLE COMPLICATION WITH THE SERVICE PROCESS OF THE STORE AND THE PRICE WAS OKAY.

    Appliance Repair Express
    My sewing machine is a very old model that was given to me by my grandmother. When it stopped working, I decided to try to have it repaired rather than replace it. Most of the other shops I called were not familiar with the brand and model of my machine and also quoted about twice the price to fix it! Not only did Appliance Repair Express replace belts and recondition the machine in one day, they did so for a reasonable price. And the shop personnel were knowledgeable and courteous.

    AAA Vacuum & Sewing Center
    I dropped the machine off and the guy who took it wasn't sure if they could do anything to fix my machine. However, they went above and beyond and in a couple of weeks I was vacuuming with the best of them. Definitely a place to go to get things done right.

    Ralph's Vacuum & Sewing Center
    I brought in the machine. They said $125 for a general maintenance tune up. About 10 days later they called to ask me to bring in the parts I forgot to bring (oops), and to say it would be $150 for the work I needed. It was done 2 days later. Works great and I expect to get another 20 years out of it.

    Apparel City Sewing Machine Co
    After not sewing for some years, I took a class at Canada College in the Fashion Department. When my serger stopped working due to a misaligned looper, a classmate recommended I take the serger (a Singer 14u85 purchased in 1990) to Apparel City in San Francisco. After talking to Nelson Lai, the proprietor, I also brought in a Simplicity BH600 (same as Babylock BL101) blind hemmer that was not working and my trusty Viking 6690 sewing machine that needed a cleaning and tune-up. The repair rate is $55 an hour (July 2011), and I was told that if the work for any of the machines did not take the full first hour, they would work on the next. The combined bill for the serger and sewing machine was $55 (ready in a few days), and for the blind hemmer (ready a few days later) was $55. All machines run fine now. I was worried about parking, but not only was street parking available but the owner pre-arranged during our telephone call for me to park in the store's loading bay around the corner in the alley and helped bring in the three machines. The store repairs sewing equipment for the apparel companies south of Market, sells high end sewing machines, and also displays and sells thread and notions. The work was professionally done and the rates were very reasonable to repair/tune up my three machines. In contrast I had been quoted $110 as the starting rate to repair just the serger by a mid-peninsula repair place, with an estimated one week turnaround time. I was trying to get the serger repaired to continue work for my class, and I did not get further estimates for the other machines until I found out about and talked to Apparel City. I'm delighted to have all three machines working well. A perfectly formed stitch is a beautiful thing.

    THE SEWING MACHINE SHOP
    My Janome 11000SE died for the second time in the middle of an embroidery design.  I called the store to inquire if this was normal or not and Dan came on the line to ask me questions about this machine.   I then decided to have a full tune-up because I was having other problems as well.  When I got the machine home, I could not believe how well it was running in both sewing mode and embroidery mode.  I now call it my "dream machine".   I know that this is a good shop because I had taken this machine to two other dealers who were not able to tune up this machine to the degree that it now runs.  The precision and detail that Dan provides when tuning up machines is what every dealer should aspire to. In addition the help at this store is phenomenal.  I have called many times with questions, and no matter who answers the phone, I am able to get my questions answered.  From experience, I know that this is not always the case with other machine shops.

    SINGER SERVICE CENTER
    EXCELLENT. I TRULY APPRECIATED THE "OLD FASHIONED GOOD SERVICE" & ATTENTION TO DETAIL! CLEARLY FAMILIAR WITH & KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE INTRICATE WORKINGS & QUIRKS OF THE INDIVIDUAL SEWING MACHINE MODELS.

    Ralph's Vacuum & Sewing Center
    THIS EXPERIENCE WAS EXTREMELY POSITIVE AND EDUCATIONAL. THE INDIVIDUAL REPAIRING MY SEWING MACHINE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL. I CAME AWAY WITH A MUCH BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE CAPABILITIES OF MY MACHINE.
