Getting an old sewing machine fixed in New York/Jersey City

Recommendations for sewing machine repair places in New York City or Jersey City?

I have an old Singer 5525 that I paid $5 for. I think there's something wrong with the bobbin assembly. I work in the garment district, so you'd think I'd be set, but all the places near me seem to be focused on fixing giant industrial machines. Anyone have a suggestion for a place where they would be tolerant of my near-total ignorance?

There are a few places along 23rd street (between 6th-8th aves, i think).

I've never used any of these places, but they display lots of models in their windows that are not industrial. I think some of the places also repair vacuum cleaners, to give you an idea of what they are like. From the outside they look like mom-and-pop shops.

Sorry i can't vouch for their service. I sew and am frequently on 23rd street running errands and what not so i've taken note of them in case my machine decides to die someday.

Thanks, I'll wander through that stretch and see what I can find out.
