I took my machine over there to have it serviced, and was told the problem was that I was loading the bobbin incorrectly and using the wrong thread and needles (needle came with the machine). After a man looked at it for 5 seconds, he got the machine to work using a different needle and thread, however, he only sewed on the machine 10 seconds. Once I got it home, it began acting up again, and is doing the same things it was doing before---breaking thread (the brand of thread he recommended, no less), chewing up my fabric and otherwise just not working properly, so I have to drag everything back out there again tomorrow and insist they really look at things and make adjustments. With Halloween around the corner and projects that need finishing, I'm not exactly pleased with the treatment I got out there today (I was also informed I should have taken one of their classes because they would have taught me how to load the bobbin properly--how hard is it to load a bobbin?), but will have them service the machine since they sold it to me, and they are familiar with that make and model.

I have a Janome I use daily for my business. I live in a small coastal town. It's a 4 hour drive (one way) for me. I called and made an appointment for annual service - not repair. I paid for 24 hour service. I did not get it. Had to stay an extra night - in hotel. The people there are very nice, but they don't know how to schedule service. If you take your machine there you may not see it at the promised time. The service was done as expected. Other than that, excellent selection of machines of all kinds.

Took working my sewing machine in for regular service. They kept it for two weeks. Returned it and told me it was serviced but needed a part, so they would return it to me and I could bring it back when the part came in. When I tried it at home it was a non working machine and clearly had not been serviced. As it turned out they are not approved service providers for the type of machine I took in, but they told me they were. When I took it to an approved service provider it turns out they put the machine back together wrong.

I am most disappointed with them.

Pros: The personnel were nice

Cons: They lied about their abilityt service my machine, and returned a broken machine to me without telling me about it.

Website is not easy to navigate - never did find list of classes. Classes are very informative and useful. I recommend the classes but need to go to the store for the list and not use this website. Even the link that says "Click Here" did not work.

Hard to miss this place! Right off the freeway, there's a big old sewing needle! Meissners has a lot of machines for sale, and it's a great place to have them serviced as well. Their prices are more than fair, and they have sales all of the time. Their classes are the best, and worth taking if you have an interest in sewing. Not a lot of fabric or thread, but sufficient for a really cute project. Oh, and they have a great quilting section as well!
