about us

Akron Sewing Machine Center and Lora Crites have been in the business of repairing and selling sewing machines for over 38 years. Lora was fixing machines long before opening her own shop in Midway Plaza. Third generation , she happily calls her special touch "a hereditary problem." Skilled in the craft, she's capable of servicing most makes and models of home and industrial sewing machines and sergers, blindhemmers, button machines and more. Why all this talk about Lora? Because she is Akron Sewing Machine Center. Our reputation is built around her. We don't just sell new machines. We try to meet our customers' needs. No high pressure sales tactics. If a new machine isn't in the family budget we offer alternatives. Repair is always an option.

Service is our strength and we stand behind our work.
