ANSWER: In the Rolodex, I have Carolann’s Sewing Machine Repair in Minot (312-1424). Carolann’s is a family-owned sewing machine repair shop that handles all models. They are also an authorized Juki sales and repair center, and they sharpen scissors!
If that’s too far for you to go, you can drop your machine off at Paul’s Shoe Repair at 350 Lisbon St. in Lisbon. The number there is 514-6800.
Western Maine Machines is a full Brother dealer, along with Elna home sewing machines. Morrison can also get Juki, Consew, Highlead, Stitchline and several other industrial brands.
