What a fantastic sponsor showcase we have today! As well as supporting new and emerging sewing-related designers and stores, it’s a real pleasure to be able to highlight sewing businesses that have been an active part of the Seattle scene from much further back. Sewing Machine Service has been in business since 1942 in the same location in Renton. They originally started with selling and servicing household sewing machines and over time added commercial machines.
Currently Sewing Machine Service works with most makes of home machines throughout western Washington and sells and services most brands of industrial sewing equipment. Back in 1978, they became the distributor for Juki industrial machines for the Northwest region including Alaska, and in 2000 became a BERNINA dealer - the largest single store dealer in western Washington.
Sewing Machine Service say “Service has always been our strong point. We strive to maintain the most qualified technicians and sales staff, with personnel regularly going to training seminars, both online and at the manufacturer’s facility. We strive to be the local resource for any sewing application.”
We are so excited to announce that Sewing Machine Service Co., Inc./Bernina of Renton has been kind enough to donate not one, but TWO sewing machines as door prizes for Seattle Frocktails. Not only that, they added an iron too! Wow!

“The bernette sew&go 1 is a mechanical sewing machine and the entry model for the sew&go family. With 10 stitches and a maximum stitch width of 5 mm, it provides excellent basic functions at a very economical price. Clearly designed and easy to operate, it‘s perfect for beginner sewers. There are four presser feet (soles), including the buttonhole foot and a zipper foot, come as standard with this model.”
Reliable describes the Reliable OVO-150GT iron here:
“Meet the mini multi-tasker. It’s an iron. It’s a steamer. It’s both! But don’t be fooled by its charm. This portable powerhouse travels light and takes out wrinkles without taking up space.”
That’s right! It’s an iron AND a steamer! What a wonderful prize for any sewist!
