    1. I bought my sewing machine (a Janome professional that I am so not worthy of) there a few years ago. They were so great. The man who helped me was super knowledgeable and actually recommended a less expensive machine based on my needs/experience. Then they matched a lower price that I found online. It is a great example of why small businesses are so wonderful.

    2. I'm interested in visiting Shingleton's, but are they still in business? I haven't seen any reviews online for them dated past 2012 and the phone number either just rings and rings or else gives an answering machine message that doesn't identify whose number it is.
