"I brought in an old Singer machine I recently inherited from my Grandmother.  They cleaned it, tuned it up, and replaced all the Long Arm Quilt Rental in Chicagomissing/damaged parts for about $86.  Definitely reasonable!

I also took the opportunity to sign up for a sewing class while I was there.  Since I am an absolute beginner, the lady recommended I take the upcoming "Crazy Strip Quilt" class just to learn some basics and get used to using the machine.  My first class was yesterday and I really REALLY enjoyed it!  The staff is so helpful and they answered all my questions.  I'm excited to sign up for more classes in the future!  This place is a real gem!"

"Sewing machine miracle workers!  Staff was so helpful and friendly, assisting in finding a (cheap) replacement part for my old Kenmore sewing machine.  They also stocked me up with the right needles, thread & bobbins so I'm ready to roll (sew).  

The store is quite large, lined with tables of machines (for classes, demos), rows and rainbows of thread, and miscellaneous accessories/parts.  They offer lots of sewing classes for those interested in learning, and they can also service old machines for regular maintenance and unique problems.  These types of specialized (friendly) stores are few and far between!"

Sewing Classes in Chicago"Brought in a garage sale serger that needed a tuneup, walked out with a fantastic machine. They stock everything, not only for Singer, and while I was in were conducting a class that looked quite fun. The singer merritt lock didn't come with a power cord or pedal control and they stocked it for less than other online options, which was very nice."

"I first found this store because my Singer sewing machine needed a tune up.  The price for a tune up was a little shocking, but after some checking I think it's fair, something like $74, which should be done annually, or bi-annually depending on usage.  When my old machine needed almost as much in repairs as a new one I purchased a new one cheaper than anything I found online.

But the real gem here is the staff and the sewing lessons.  If you buy a new machine they will give you an hour get-acquainted lesson on your machine and then additional sessions as you need them.  

Sewing classes in chicagoThey also offer sewing lessons, the best and most reasonably priced I've ever heard of.  They offer 6 2-hour lessons for $60.  That's $5 an hour and the lessons are pretty much semi-private.  Nancy, the teacher is quirky but trained in design and will teach you the old fashioned way to do it yourself on patterns and techniques.  If you are an absolute beginner sewer she will teach you how to use a machine and how to pick patterns and measure and cut and sew.  If you have some experience she will take you from there.  The first pattern is one of her suggestion, but after that you choose your project, from clothing to home decor, she will help you when you get stuck and teach you how to do it.  If you take more sessions you just keep bringing your projects in and she will help you as you go along.  One of the most valuable things she teaches is how to customize and tailor clothes for your body type.  

I am on my second set of lessons and want to go back for more!  Compared to lessons at other places, I will not name, this is absolutely the best value and the best for continuing education.  It's not trendy or in a cool neighborhood but it's the real deal."
