Crucial to Keeping Your Machine

Running Like New...

Regular Maintenance & Cleaning

Every time you use your machine, and let's face it... we buy machines to use them, fabric and thread particles are left behind. The more you use your machine, the more likely there will be a build-up, which will eventually cause your machine to not function at its full potential.

A regular cleaning & service appointment at Flash will keep your machine working the way it was intended.

Sewing Machine Tech Service at FLASH

Special Note: we are often asked…what is the difference between how the technicians at FLASH will service my machine and others might do it? The best response we can provide is this:  there is a distinct difference between getting your car detailed by an expert technician and hosing it off with a garden hose. In our mind, there is NO fast way to get it done…..only the RIGHT way. Which is one of the reasons why we implemented our appointment schedule. Make that appointment. It’s extremely easy. Drop her off at 10:00 AM. Then go shopping and have a nice lunch….and as long as we do not encounter any problems, we will see you after 1:30 PM

Call now to make your appointment with one of our

Baby Lock or Bernina Certified and Trained Technicians
