Located in Walnut Creek, CA, our family-owned and operated shop has now been in business for over 35 years and offers the largest selection of premium sewing machines in the San Francisco Bay Area. Convenient storefront parking, a knowledgeable and friendly staff, expert repair technicians, and a large selection of classes, accessories, notions, and thread make The Sewing Machine Shop a one-stop destination for all your sewing needs.

We know buying a new machine can be overwhelming– the sewing machine world is bigger than you think! There are so many options out there, but not a lot of good information. We are trying to fix that. We highly recommend you check out Dan’s Ultimate Sewing Machine Review and our other educational material.

Customer Satisfaction
Here at The Sewing Machine Shop, we genuinely want you to be happy with your machine. In many ways we are partners. You may buy a new machine from us, and in turn it is our job to support you in every way possible so that you are happy with your sewing experience. 
Customer satisfaction is our primary goal. It is a driving force in everything our business does, from the machines we choose to carry, to the classes we choose to offer. If you choose to buy your machine from us, we offer free "getting started" classes to help you learn your new machine. If you are buying from us online, we offer that same "getting started" class via Skype/Facetime/etc.
