Dear sewingmachinesteve,

I got the 301 yesterday and I used it. You sold me a wonderful machine. I just love it. I wish you lived closer so I could take my other 301 (which has tension problems) to you. I think you did an excellent job on it. I am so happy I bought it from you. Thanks so much.

Customer Testimonials

It is about a week a since I picked up my machines from you. I have all THREE set up now-- The astonishing pink Morse 400 which you sold me, the Singer 15-91, the used machine which my parents purchased for me about 1970, and the Singer Athena 2000 that my mom purchased new in 1977. The Morse that you recommended for the heaviest work I am attempting (boat curtains and other heavy duty) is operating very nicely and allowing me to work with fabrics my other machines did not handle. Your restorations of the other two machines pleases me greatly. Over my numerous years of sewing (more than 50!), I have owned and discarded several newer machines. The two you repaired were always better than any newer machine I tried. It is a great joy to have them back in service. I am so grateful that you have such an appreciation for the superior design and construction of these "classic" machines. You are a dedicated and skilled workman. Please continue your good work.

Ms. A Poqouson

You refurbished my Husqvarna Viking 21a and did a stellar job. It runs beautifully, and truth to tell, it rivals my new Bernina in stitch quality. You are extremely knowledgeable and clearly love what you do, which is very reassuring. I would recommend your service to anyone who needs to get their machine into shape. You are the only person I trust with my vintage machines.

Mellissa Newport News

My sewing machine has never run so well. Thank you...Thank you!

Karen Chesapeake

The machine you sold me exceeds my expectations and I highly recommend you to anyone that wants a vintage machine at a reasonable price.

John Newport News

The local dealer messed up my Singer. The electrical was a mess and it made a clicking noise. I can't thank you enough installing new wires and making it run smooth. I will only service with you.

Mrs. C Virginia Beach

Thanks again for good machine and all the help teaching me to thread are great. I recommend you to anyone who wants high quality, fair price and good service.

Wayne Norfolk

SewXXX guy told me it wasn't worth anything and tried to sell me a plastic machine with a computer screen. He wasn't interested in repairing it. You showed me that my Singer 500A is a collectors item and your refurbishment was outstanding. Your fees are more than fair, in fact I think they are a bargain in today's throw away life.

Jean Suffolk

Have a Singer Athena that a Singer dealer could not or would not repair. You not only repaired it but showed me features that I didn't know it had. I will reccomend you to my friend. Please feel free to put this note onto your website.

Ms F Norfolk

"I had a brand new Singer (not even 6-months old) that I paid $200.00 dollars for that went on the fritz. I called Singer to see how much it would cost to have it repaired. Not only did it not fall under warranty (because it was computerized) but it was going to cost $200 dollars just for them to look at it - not to mention, parts, labor, and shipping costs. I was not about to pay the same amount to have it repaired when I could purchase a new one for the same price. So I started researching sewing machine repair shops. I came across Steve on Craigslist. He had a posting stating that he repairs sewing machines. Luckily for me, I live in the same area as Steve so I emailed him and asked if he could take a look at my sewing machine. He was so very courteous, professional, and knew a lot about his profession. He inquired about my machine and asked what I use it for. After telling him I do a lot of crafting, from doll making to quilted and leather handbags, he told me the machine I was using was the wrong type. It basically was a heap of plastic junk and he steered me in the right direction. Not only did I purchase a vintage sewing machine from him - which is wonderful - but he also repaired my plastic Singer (for $60). I had the privilege of meeting Steve and I have to say, he is the nicest and most honest man. My husband and I are military and no matter where we get stationed, I will purchase from and send all my repairs to Steve. Highest Praise to Sewing Machine Steve! Thanks so much!"

C.W. Langley A.F.B, Hampton, VA

This is a very strong machine. Today I'm going to actually try sewing my canopy swing top. I am well pleased! Thank you for all your efforts, I feel confident this is the type of machine I need. I will recommend you to anyone I know that is in need of a good sewing machine.

Mrs. F. Frankfort, Kentucky

I sent my Necchi Supernove to you. I never expected that it would return running so smoothly. It runs better than I can ever remember and my husband bought it for me brand new. Thank you so much.

Mrs. H. Milwaukee, WI
Thank you for refurbishing my Necchi Nova. I was about to give it to Goodwill when I found your website. You did an extremely good job making it run perfectly. I will recommend you to my friends.
Mrs. G. Severn, MD

I just receive my Pfaff 360 back from you. The machine looks and runs like it is new. I cannot believe it. I highly recommend you to anyone with a Pfaff...or maybe any other brand machine. I am extremely pleased.

Ms. S. Spokane, WA

I sent my Necchi Super Nova Ultra to you expecting a good job. What I receive was spectacular. It not only runs perfectly but the finish is fantastic. You told me that you waxed it but this is great. I would not hesitate an instant to use you again and I'll tell my friends. I will show the machine to everybody that I know that sews. Thank you so much:)

Mrs. P Palmer, MA

Wow, it's are the best. Fantastic job on my 201. Finish never looked so good. Thanks a bunch.

Ms. E St. Louis, MS


Remember me? I'm the mechanical engineer from the local shipyard. You sold me a Dressmaker straight stitching 'pounder' a couple months ago for my vinyl boat seat project. You even gave me a tour of your shop including your paint booth. Well, I finished my project a month ago and the Boston Whaler looks great! The seats turned out so nice that I had to replace the old mahogany wood to match the new vinyl with welting trim! My wife didn't think I could do it and she would have been right if you didn't help. Thanks for taking the time to show me the tricks of the trade!!!! You are a class act!
Thank you for what you did for my machine. It moves like silk and it's beautiful. It looks like it's old but it runs like it's brand new. You are a magician!
