Bert’s Recommendations

Bert is a fully qualified, Factory Trained and Authorized Technician, born with a screwdriver in his hand.

Bert has also trained our Staff to properly assess and assist our customers with their sewing machine and serger performance questions.

If our staff can’t figure it out, Bert will!

80 % of the time, if you have a stitch problem, it’s a bad or wrong needle.
