I having been purchasing Berninas from this store for 30 years. Their repairs are great and not only on Berninas. They have repairs my Featherweight also. I stopped going to the store for several years due to a rude employee are mentioned in a previous review. She is no longer at that store and there is now wonderful, knowledgable and extremely helpful people working there. I recently upgraded my embroidery program and have been learning how to use it with their very patient guidance. Wonderful store, wonderful people and a wonderful product.

It has taken me a month to write this review because I have been busy using my sewing machine repaired my Marty at Mayhall's Sewing Center. I took my Bernina 930 to the Mayhall??s about a month ago. I had taken it to another repair place to have it cleaned and it came back with problems. After suffering with it for about 6 months, I finally bit the bullet and took it to Mayhalls which is an authorized Bernina dealer. I was greeted by warm friendly people that were willing to help. Marty, the technician, took a look at the machine right on the spot and told me what he recommended for this 26 year old machine. He took time to explain what and why he thought it was necessary for what he suggested and even showed me the difference between what the machine had and what he suggested. I told him that I was in the middle of a project and was expecting him to tell me that it would be repaired in a week as in other shops. I was absolutely shocked when he told me that he could repair and clean the machine in and hour. Since I was on a tight time schedule, I was elated to have my machine back the same day to resume my project. Upon picking up my machine, Marty explained and showed me what he had done. When I got my machine home, it was as if it was a new machine. It purred like a kitten and what a difference! My joy of sewing has been restored by the awesome job Marty had done. I would definitely recommend this store to anyone needing a repair or cleaning for their sewing machine.

I bought both of my Bernina's at Mayhall's around 20 years ago. They still work great and that is due to the great tune-up and repair work done at Mayhall's. They are very polite and helpful, answering all of my questions. I highly recommend them.

I've been to this store twice, and on each visit I was met with a very surly, rude, manager. On the first visit, I was stared at as if I were walking into her private residence, no "hello, I'll be with you in a minute". The manager looked at me as if I were imposing upon her and asked very impolitely if I needed help. Perhaps she isn't able to handle two customers at once.
I went back to pick up something I'd ordered and sure enough, no greeting, no smile, and very abrupt service. It may just be me but I usually smile and am pleasant to whomever I'm speaking. I had been warned that this store was not the most friendly, and I'm sad to report that their reputation is quite accurate. If anyone knows of another Bernina store, I'd be grateful. I don't want to give this store anymore of my business.

I had to add this business in hopes that it may come in handy for some gal looking for sewing classes. ( I am moving to nyc and I am having trouble finding postings, so I thought I would add my great find on the los angeles pages). I moved to California recently and was searching for a new hobby. I've always wanted to sew and learn to make/cut apart and reassemble my own clothes. Montrose was quite the drive from West Hollywood, but I took a risk and, oh so worth it!~ The course is geared toward beginner/intermediate level, but I believe you can join the course at any time. You purchase 4 classes at a time at 3 hours for each class. Thus 12 hours of instruction for under $70. This is quite the find, considering you are recieving individual attention. Classes are limited to 6 people, but I always had less than 4 other gals. Norma the instructor is fantastic, and quite the seamstress. I deeply regret having to relocate. If you took Norma's course for 6 months, I believe you would be a pretty darn good sewer. If you've ever considered learning to sew, do this. You will not be able to find other instruction of this level, nor for this reasonable of a price. I can't say enough good things. They also do sissor sharpening, have all kinds of sewing notions, and they repair the machines on the premise. Bernina specialists. Also the area is so darling, and quaint. The cheese and wine shop next door is great for a pre class snack, and the thai restaurant a ways down is to die for.

Great place to get your vacuum repaired. I brought over my broken Hoover and they fixed it by the very next day. Their service is excellent. They have experience and knowledge that goes along well with the reasonable prices. They also special in other areas such as sewing machines.

This is a great little sewing shop tucked in hills of Montrose, on the main street. They have such a great selection of goodies, items you might not ever see at Hancocks or Joannes. They are a bit pricey, but again they have a good selection. Their sales personnel are very cordial as well as knowledgeable, and if you are lucky you might even witness a sewing demonstration. They have, besides sewing accessories, sewing machines, sergers, vacuums and do repairs. I think my favorite thing is to watch a demo of a 5 minute made t-shirt on a top of the line serger and they have the greatest selection of buttons. Park on the street or in the back.

PROS: Variety personal service, repairs, new appliances
CONS: prices
