Our History

We have a long history of sewing machine service here in Austin, TX. Lee Roy Schilling began his career working for the Singer company & worked there for 30 years. Lee Roy was drafted to the Korean war and served in clothing & textiles for the Army, where he repaired fatigues and learned to fix commercial Singer sewing machines. In 1982, Mr. Schilling established Northwest Sewing Center as a sales & service center for Singer machines. He added many more brands & product offerings to the store & retired from the shop in 2013. Mr. Schilling created a legacy of excellent service that his daughter, Mary Freudenberg, and the staff at Northwest Sewing Center happily continue!

In 2022, Northwest Sewing Center, a locally owned & award winning shop, celebrated 40 years in the business!!!


In 2020, Lee Roy Celebrated his 90th birthday!
