I have used their services many times, both for vacuums and sewing machines. Top notch.


They saved my bacon. A belt on our vaccum broke. They verified the correct size and was in stock already.. saved me from spending hundreds on a new unit or waiting a week plus for a replacement part from the manufacturer, which isn't an option obviously.

&I went in looking for a small belt for a piece of lawn equipment I couldn't find anywhere else. It was not related to sewing machines or vacuums but it was an odd size and I was having a tough time finding it. The service I received here was awesome, so friendly and helpful. I bought a small belt and they said if it didn't work they would take it back and give me a full refund - no questions. If you are looking for anything sewing machine or vacuum related, or any other services they provide, and you receive half the amount of friendly personable service that I did, you will be doing really well.
