Whether you are contemplating purchasing a regular sewing machine, a quilting machine, a serger or embroidery machine it is important that you visit a store that is acquainted with all the details of the machine’s operation.
There have been many improvements in sewing machines over the past few years. This requires knowledge of all the tasks they will perform. At Capital Sew & Quilt, our personnel receive complete training on each machine as new techniques are introduced. This enables them to fully describe and demonstrate every machine in stock.
Choosing the Proper Machine
Many customers come into the store with a specific sewing machine in mind. Naturally, the budget, user’s skill level and needs place the machine’s functions at the top of the list. In many cases, we can demonstrate a single machine that will do several jobs, such as sewing, embroidery and quilting that a few years ago would have required more than one machine.
On today’s market, you have the opportunity to purchase a mechanical or a computerized sewing machine. There have been many changes in both models over the past few years which has required additional staff training.
A computer sewing machine, which is fitted with computer chips, features such things as stop/start buttons, auto-threading, automatic buttonhole making, a variety of stitch width and length, automatic tension, etc. It is especially popular with people who are into working with a lot of quilting and embroidery.
Mechanical sewing machines, on the other hand, require these functions to be done by hand. However, many people find that this machine performs beautifully and is less expensive than the computer models.
What We Offer
It is our pleasure to demonstrate the latest entry and most advanced models on the market that are offered by companies such as Singer, Brother, Viking, Juki and others. Our stock includes Embroidery, Household, Industrial, Quilting, Felting, and Handheld Machines as well as Blind Hemmers and Sergers. If you wish, by all means, bring fabric samples to test machines and settings.
The size of the sewing machine can often depend on the space and uses you have for the machine. For example, the computerized Juki TL-200QP Mini Sewing Machine is lightweight and is easily transported from one location to another. This makes it very popular with people who wish to take their machine to sewing classes, demonstrations and other locations where transporting a regular machine would be difficult.
As a sewing machine shop, we are dedicated to serving our customer’s needs. We will be happy to explain what each machine will do and perform a demonstration, so you can see the result.
The goal of all personnel at Capital Sew & Quilt is to help our customers select a machine that will provide many years of sewing pleasure and satisfaction.
As a result, we feature the latest in sewing machines and accessories such as needles, bobbins, thread and other items that often need replacing with a sewing machine. Our stock includes a large number of sizes and styles to fit all types of machines.
We are proud to provide the right products and competitive pricing to meet your particular needs. It is our aim to supply you with information about our machines and products so you can make the right choice for your purchase. Of course, there is a warranty on all our sewing machines.

Over time, it is common to have thread, lint and other things to build up in your machine. In addition, it is not uncommon to find the tension and timing out of alignment.
Cleaning the machine is the first order of business followed by oiling, checking all parts of the machine and making needed tension and timing adjustments. This is followed by checking gears, needle threaders, cutters, motor and other parts of the machine. Any broken parts are replaced at this time. The last step is a careful wiping down of the entire machine.
Computerized machines are more complicated than mechanical sewing machines due to the use of computer chips. These chips are what provides the smooth operation that makes sewing a pleasure with this type of mechanism.
After a thorough cleaning, fresh oil is applied to assure that there are no dry parts in the machine that can cause friction. Adjustments are made to the tension, Feed Dog and Hook timing. Following this, all belts, automatic needle threaders, bobbin winders, thread cutters, bobbin case, gears, sensors, circuit boards, screens, other electronic components are checked for adjustment or replacement.
This procedure is also followed on Long Arm Sewing & Quilting, Embroidery, Multi-Needle Embroidery and Industrial Sewing Machines. Servicing any of these machines will include an inspection, thorough cleaning, lubrication, adjustments. A part replacement has a charge over that of servicing.
