Our History

We have a long history of sewing machine service here in Austin, TX. Lee Roy Schilling opened this store over 35 years ago as a sales and service center for Singer machines. Before that, he worked for the Singer company for 30 years! Since then, we have added many other brands to our product offerings, and we are knowledgeable on all machine brands for repair.

Leroy Schilling created a legacy of excellent service that his  we happily continue since his retirement in 2013.
