the workroom is now an authorized BERNINA dealer. This coveted Swiss brand of sewing machines, sergers and accessories is now available through our Parkdale location. Every Bernina machine comes with a one year warranty and private lesson to learn all about your new machine. Please visit the shop to experience these wonderful machines in person.
Classes are limited to seven students to ensure you get the best instruction. To register for a class, we require a 50% nonrefundable deposit to hold your spot. Full payment is due on or before the first class date. Class fees are payable by cash, Visa, Mastercard and debit. Upon registration we will email you a confirmation with the supply and material list for your class. Unless noted, supplies and materials are not included.
Sewing Machine Repair & Servicing
Whether your machine is in need of repair or a yearly tune-up, you can now drop it off at the workroom for full servicing. Our experienced technician accepts any brand of sewing machine or serger and offers a one year warranty on all workmanship. Scissor sharpening is also available. Please contact us for full details.
We require a 50% NONREFUNDABLE deposit in order to register you for a class. Any cancellations or changes to your registration must be done at least 72 hours prior to the class start date in order to be issued a store credit. Cancellations that are made less than 72 hours before the class start date and students who do not show up to class will forfeit their deposit. Due to our small class sizes, this policy ensures that teachers are compensated for their time and wait listed students have the opportunity to join a sold out class. Please be sure of your schedule before registering for a class.
