New Sewing Machine Sales

Need a new sewing machine? We offer domestic home sewing machines from some of the most popular brands available: Bernina, Juki*, HandiQuilter, Janome, Elna and bernette. Whether you are looking for computerized machines that offer all the modern conveniences of cutters, and thread sensors, or more mechanical machines that simply do a professional style straight stitch, we have it. From sewing, quilting, machine embroidery or longarm quilting, 1st Sewing Center is your full-service sewing destination.


Trade-Up Option

If you purchased a NEW sewing machine from 1st Sewing Center and took it home and now wish you had purchased that one machine version up from the one you bought, we have you covered. You have the option to TRADE-UP your machine within 1-year from its purchase date and retain the full value you paid for the machine to put towards an upgraded machine you want to buy at 1st Sewing Center.


* We do not distribute, sell or service Juki Industrial Machines or Industrial Machine Parts

Sewing Machine Trade-In Option

1st Sewing Center does accept some trade-ins of older machines on a case-by-case basis, where the quoted value may be used against the quoted price of a new sewing machine. Traded-in sewing machines must be surrendered at time of purchase of a new sewing machine to receive the credit. Please note that not all older machines will be acceptable for trade-in.  Please see a service technician or sales associate for details. 

New Sewing Machine Owner Training

When you purchase a new sewing machine from 1st Sewing Center, you get personalized lessons on how to run your machine. We will teach you all the tips and tricks to make sure you run your machine like a pro. From winding a bobbin, to threading the machine, using the needle threader if available and cleaning and oiling it. You can rest assured that when you purchase a machine from us versus buying it online, we will make sure you know how to use it. 

Sewing Machine Tune-ups, Cleaning and Repairs

Don’t let lint and dust turn your sewing machine into an unused doorstop. All sewing machines need a good cleaning and tune-up to ensure that it gives you the best-looking stitch possible. We service and repair all brands of domestic home sewing machines, and you can have confidence that when you bring us your machine, we will clean, oil and adjust it, make sure the needle and hook timing is spot-on, and provide you with a test-sew sample so you can see that the work was done professionally. We repair onsite at each location with industry trained service professionals. Most repairs can be done within 7-10 business days unless there are special circumstances involved, which will be communicated to you in advance. We guarantee it.

Quilting, Sewing and Machine Embroidery Classes and Store Events

From sewing for beginners, to creative class projects, machine instruction, and advanced learning, 1st Sewing Center offers an extensive range of fun, informative classes to inspire and encourage you! View our Classes and Events page for a full schedule of upcoming sewing education opportunities.

Previously Loved Sewing Machine Sales

1st Sewing Center will take in periodic trade-ins that still have life in them and refurbish them to working order. We provide these previously loved machines to you at a discounted price. These machines are sold as-is and may not have every foot or accessory with them if not provided by the previous owner. 1st Sewing Center guarantees these machines for 1-year from purchase and will help you get to know your “new to you” machine.
