My first experience with this shop was to get my sewing machine repaired. I thought that I had a real serious problem, but found out that I just had a bent needle. I also found out that they had quilt making classes, among others. I took one & then I bought a sewing machine from them. The owners & employees are all very polite & knowledgable about their products as well as some that they don't sell. I highly recommend this shop for vac's, sewing machines (new & repairs)and classes.
