How to repair sewing machines at home

We have developed a range of distance learning programs for sewing machine repair training which will show you how to repair  sewing machines at home or wherever you are in the world.

As well as the need to keep safe in these trying times, we’re also aware that our clients have busy lives. As a result it may not be convenient or possible to visit our sewing machine training centre in Hartfield, England, so a digital training course could be for you.

You’ll learn how to fix sewing machines from the comfort and safety of your own surroundings with our interactive courses. We hope you’ll find a course to suit you and if you have any questions, please contact us.

Once you’ve  purchased a course, you’ll be sent a link to download it. The download link will expire after 72 hours.

No prior knowledge or skill is required to master our courses.


Here are some of the frequently asked questions about our digital sewing machine repair courses. They are in an interactive PDF format and can be downloaded up to 72 hours after purchasing a course. 

You require no prior knowledge of sewing machines. The course provides a hands on approach and you’ll learn how to diagnose, repair and maintain many types of sewing machines. Support is available should you need it.

Our courses are in depth and thorough. With part time study the courses should take no longer than four weeks to complete. If you are struggling we will help you across the finish line. 

That depends on the type of course you choose (overlocker, lockstitch, zig zag etc). However, as many problems with sewing machines are universal, we are very confident that the knowledge gained for one type of machine can be replicated across many different types.

Our digital courses were designed for distance learning purposes. You’ll need a standard tool box and a room with good lighting to learn how to fix your sewing machines.

The course outlines the specific tools you’ll need. You’ll have to supply these but a set of screwdrivers is a good start. You’ll also receive basic sewing machine manuals towards the end of your course.

We’re confident you won’t require assistance with our distance learning courses. However our courses are extremely popular so we aim to answer any queries within one working day. (Excluding weekends)

Our courses conclude with four online exams. Upon successfully completing a course you will be awarded a certification from Artizan Training. Our certifications are widely accepted by textile and manufacturing companies who require a sewing machine mechanic to service/repair their machines.

Not yet, but you can learn how to repair electronic and computerised sewing machines at our training facility in Hartfield.

All trainees are entitled to support for a month after certification. We can provide you with written support or help via video chat. If you require long term support then please contact us to discuss our subscriptions plans.

Yes, there is a severe worldwide shortage of skilled sewing machine mechanics in both the domestic and industrial sectors.

Yes, absolutely. If you complete any of the courses you can start your new venture with confidence. We have taught many people who have gone on to run very successful businesses.

It’s very difficult to give an exact answer. If you work for a textiles or manufacturing company already, you may be able to leverage a pay rise with your new found skills. If you go it alone, it really comes down to how many hours you’re able to put in. Some may only want supplement their income but many of our students have made a living repairing sewing machines full time.

Customers Reviews

I recently completed a distance learning course run by Artizan Training during the COVD-19 pandemic. The course was very easy to follow and the support from the staff was second to none. I would highly recommend Artizan for their professionalism and quality of their courses. Looking forward to booking in for more at their training school when the restrictions are lifted

“I completed the domestic lockstitch online course during the 2020 lockdown. Following Alan’s expert tutoring, I felt able to go on and open my sewing machine business in SW France and I am super busy. I highly recommend these courses”
