I'm trying to figure out how to get my machine serviced. Steve's has a 7 day turn around or a same day service that takes 5 hours. Either way. It's a huge hassle to drag all three kids all the way out there. Either one whole day, entertaining them somehow and skipping naps or two separate long trips. But if I don't do it before school starts, I won't be able to get out there at all.
Are there any other stores that service Brother machines in the Philly metro area? I would be grateful for suggestions.

Years ago I dealt with Hayes Sewing Center in Clifton Heights. I do not know if they do repairs but they had great sales and service

How about looking in the yellow pages...maybe under the header of sewing machine repair...then make a few phone calls.

Hayes Sewing Centre in Clifton Heights closed a number of years ago.
Hayes has a store in Delaware off Route 202 not far from the Pennsylvania border.
You can check its website for location.
I have used both Steve's and Hayes for machine service.
I bought a Janome from Eagle Sewing Machine. The name of the owner is Gary and you might want to call to see if he services other brand name machines.

Fir many years I used a guy on 8th st near MArket
Business moved to Kensington and I followed
They stopped repairing machines
Checked Yelliw pages and found fabulous guy at 22nd and Lehigh
Great service. Reasonable price
Next year I called and phone disconnected
Yelliw pages again. Found guy overpriced znd took forever
Do not feel like trashing him though
Then guy from 22nd and Lehogh called to say back in business
I just verified number called him this evening. before passing along and it is good
Here it is 215. 681. 8067. I wholeheartedly recommend him
Good luck! Mimi
