I love this store but not as much as my new Miele Vacuum.
I suffer from allergies and this baby literally saves my life!

I just brought my vacuum here to be serviced. Even though they don't service Bissell vacuums, they volunteered to take a look at mine to see if it was simply a clogged filter. Sure enough, it was. Lena cleaned all of the filters for me at no charge. Her customer service went above and beyond my expectations and I will definitely go back to this place as well as refer my friends.

Interestingly, I just had a very similar experience as the writer of the previous article titled "Little girl, BIG help." Without going into a lot of detail, I will summarize as follows: I brought two sewing machines into "Quality", hoping to get them repaired. One a 1954 Singer Model 15-91, which my wife loves to sew on and is fine old all metal machine, and the other a 1970's Morse 4400 which is an all metal workhorse (in fact , it was made by the Toyota company in Nagoya, Japan). A middle-aged women with short hair told me my 1970's vintage sewing machine was likely to be a lost cause but that if I wanted I could submit it to their shop with the hope that it might be salvageable. She went on to say that the Singer was probably not worth repairing and that they were "a dime a dozen." The latter unsolicited comment was not appreciated. Clearly she was not interested in helping me get my machines repaired. However, my interaction with the young women working at the store was quite the opposite. She seemed inquisitive and immediately jumped in to try and find the problem. I came off feeling like the first women (the middle-aged one) had little interest in helping me with repair of my machine, presumably preferring to sell me a new machine instead. The store is lucky to have that young women as an employee. That said, based on the treatment I received from the older women I elected not to leave my machines for repair and I will not be bringing my business to this store again. In fact, after a bit or online research, I discovered City Vacuum and Sewing in Shoreline (200 Aurora North). I brought my two machines in to City V&S and found them interested and willing in repairing my older machines. In fact, they made comments about the high quality of the machines and said that it was very worthwhile getting them repaired. Not only that, but it turns out that City S&V center charges half (about $60) of the price that "Quality" charges for simple servicing of a sewing machine. Twice the cost and a bad attitude. Not a good combination. I recommend that people avoid "Quality" and instead bring their business to City V&S in Shoreline. At City you will be treated with respect and pay half the cost as compared to "Quality" in Ballard. The Seattle Times had a nice review article about City. It can be found here:

I recently brought my old sewing machine into Ballard Sew and Vac to be fixed. This was my first experience with the shop other than the occasional vacuum bag purchase. The first women I spoke to told me the machine was pretty much toast and not worth looking at. But when she moved on to the next customer a younger women stepped in and asked if she could take a look at it. She looked like she couldn't be more than 18 (if that) but man did she know her stuff! Turns out the only problem was I wasn't threading it right! The younger women (I didn't catch her name) was an angel and gave me some great tips on how to keep my machine up and running as well as how to use it properly! Not only did she fix my machine up in no time, but she was honest, polite, willing to help, AND a pleasure to talk to. It's not often you find all of that in someone fresh out of high school!

I brought in my sewing machine to see if they could show me how to thread it... and not only did they show me ohw to thread it but they gave me a Free class on how to use my machine.. and I didn't even buy it from them. They have a great selection of all the sewing supplies I needed and the prices seemed reasonable. The staff was very friendly and seemed like they were enjoying being at work. It is nice to go into to a store where people really want to help you.
