Why buy overseas when you can make it here in the US? Use our industrial sewing machines for apparel manufacturing to start a fashion line with your unique spin.
If you need fabric, we have hundreds of yards of 100% cotton jersey knit, and can even get specialty fabrics like rayon (made from bamboo) and hemp blends! The cost to use our industrial sewing machines is only $12 for the first hour and $6 per additional hour (which includes thread & our normal time-in-office charge) to use any and all of our sewing machines. You can even jump back and forth between them! If you bring your own thread, you only pay the normal DIY in-office charge ($10 for the first hour, $5 for each additional hour).
Industrial sewing machines are purpose-built to perform a single function very well. They are much more powerful than a home machine and can have some handy features for volume work, in addition to being far faster and more consistent. At the bottom of this page is a rough speed comparison!
Book an appointment to come in and use our machines! If you need help learning how to use industrial sewing machines, appointment times are normally in the evenings or on the weekends.

Here are a couple videos to compare a home serger (left) at max speed to an industrial serger (right), not quite at max possible speed (controlled by a dial on the motor). One note – the industrial is actually set on a smaller stitch (which takes longer to do).
