The industrial sewing machine is a heavy duty version of a standard home sewing machine, and it is used in the clothing and other related industries, such as upholstery sewing for furniture. One of the common uses for the industrial sewing machine is to perform the mass production sewing of pockets into garments made out of heavy canvas, such as denim for blue jeans.

Tune-up services for all models of sewing machines. Sewing machines become full of lint, thread, dust, fuzz, and all kinds of other matter over the course of use, and can become compacted in old grease and oil.
