Yes there is, but you will need very deep pockets -

click here for a blutooth serial plug adaptor, max range 100m

click here for an infra-red serial adaptor, 2m range

Check before ordering that the devices will work with a piece of kit such as a sewing machine - many of these adaptors assume the presence of certain drivers on the host.

Can you not just run a long serial cable from the PC to a convenient place for the sewing machine?

Or better still, buy a network-ready sewing machine, with WiFi capabilities :)
