For my Christmas present this year I got some money to spend on a sewing machine.  Before I head out to the stores I thought I'd ask to see if anyone had any experiences to share - great service somewhere, a machine you're really happy with, or places to avoid?  I'm probably going to try some of the quilting places listed in the crafty directory.

I just noticed your post so I might be too late. However, I have had great service at Sewing World. There are two locations in town and I recently bought a serger there and they said I can come back anytime for lessons if I need to learn how to use it (which I do!).

Also, I bought a simple Janome sewing machine about 8 years ago and have never had a problem with it. If you go to Sewing World and tell them your budget the ladies will be really helpful. I told them I wanted a Janome serger and they showed me all the options and didn't try and sell me the top-of-the-line model - which they didn't like - but a lower version that they said worked better b/c it had a metal base (instead of plastic).

One location is 136-71st Ave. S.E. and another one is 2130 Crowchild Tr. N.W.

I have only been to the south one.

Cool - thanks!  I actually haven't had time to even look at sewing machines yet, so your post isn't too late.  Life is what happens when you're making other plans, right?   Wink
