Hello Craftsters,
Please forgive the dual posting, but I'm need need of broad advice on a pretty narrow topic. I'm visiting my sister in Dallas, TX from Virginia. I've promised to do some sewing for her, but do *not* wish to transport my beloved sewing machine on the plane (travelling with children, I have enough to worry about). 
What might be my options for renting/borrowing a machine from a shop in the Dallas/Bedford area? I'm happy to pay a sizeable (yet refundable) deposit to insure against theft or damage. I'd like to have a Viking, since that's what i use now, but any basic/average machine (a bottom line Pfaff would be great also) would do. I'm only there for a few days.
Any thoughts? Do any of you Texas residents know of a good, generous sewing machine dealer willing to do such a thing? Any of you, perhaps, have an extra machine to share?
Thanks for considering this,
lisaquilts

I would suggest calling Hancock Fabrics or JoAnnes and asking them if they know of a place that might do that.  I know certain smaller sewing machine repair shop, those are few and far between, sometimes lend them out while yours is being repaired they may rent.  Sorry I could not be of more help.  there are quite few sewing stores and machines shops in Plano have your sister look up their phone numbers and give them a call.
