Cleanings, tune-ups and repairs for domestic sewing machines and sergers

All sewing machines need a little lovin' from time to time. Just like your vehicle, you need to take care of your sewing machine, so your machine will take care of you! The older your sewing machine, the more important taking care of it becomes.

It's a good idea to have your sewing machine serviced by a professional on an annual basis, or sometimes more often if you use your machine for production work, to help ensure a long life for your machine.

Why Use Ronkita Design

  • Multiple locations around Austin
  • Scheduled appointments to review your machine in detail
  • Often problems are resolved during the diagnostic appointment
  • Fast turn time - most machines that need servicing are returned in 7-10 days

How it works

Get your sewing machine serviced quickly in 3 easy steps:

1) Schedule Appointment

Schedule an appointment at one of the locations around Austin.

A non-refundable fee is required to schedule the appointment to review a problem you're experiencing or to drop your sewing machine off for a full-service cleaning. Walk-ins are not available.

2) In-Person Diagnostic

At your appointment I'll review the problem you're experiencing or the service you want performed.

If you're experiencing a problem and it can't be fixed during the diagnostic, I'll provide a recommendation and estimate for additional servicing.

3) Machine Serviced

Most sewing machines that need servicing are returned in 7-10 days.

In order to provide this very quick turn-time a limited number of slots are available each week for service, so schedule an appointment as soon as possible!


If you want to proceed with full-service after the diagnostic, this includes:

Machine Tune-up Tune-up
Complete inspection of the machine, and a review of all major components to ensure they're functioning properly
Machine Oiling Oiling
Lube moving parts that require oiling to ensure they run smoothly, and the removal and replacement of old grease
Machine Cleaning Cleaning
Removal of dust and debris that can prevent your machine from running efficiently or even lead to major problems later
Machine Repairs Minor Repairs
Adjustment of major components to make sure they're functioning as they should, filing out nicks, replacing worn out springs or screws, and other minor fixes

About the Technician

Vanessa was the sewing machine service technician at The Stitch Lab and performed all of the cleanings, repairs and maintenance. She has worked on hundreds of sewing machines, gaining intimate knowledge of the mechanics and performance of various makes/models, and likes to be able to share this information with clients and students so they can get the most out of their sewing machine.

Types of Machines Serviced

We service just about any domestic sewing machine and serger, vintage and new - Singer, Bernina, Janome, Kenmore, Brother, Juki, Pfaff, Husqvarna, White, Baby Lock and more. If you have a digital sewing machine, these can also be serviced to tune up, clean or replace mechanical parts as needed, however, if the issue you're experiencing is related to the digital or electrical components, then you will need to have your machine serviced by the manufacturer or a local dealer.

Is your machine in a desk, or an industrial machine?

Do you have more than one machine that needs servicing?
