Have you bought anything from this store? If yes were the prices competitive?
I've never visited this store in person, but I have bought several Bernina accessories from them over the phone. I've bought a couple of feet and other accessories for my Bernina machine that I couldn't find locally. The service has always been very good.

Were the sales people polite and friendly?
The sales people have always been very friendly and helpful.

How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells?
Very good.

How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store?
Their prices seem to be about 20% higher than my local Bernina dealer.

Would you shop here again?
If I were looking for a particular item that I couldn't find locally, I would call them.

My DD lives within walking distance of this store. The one time she went in, she said they weren't very friendly and she wasn't comfortable just wandering around.

I can see how Melinda's daughter could have had a bad experience at Gina's but I want to add that I don't think that that's the norm. Gina's is one of the most beautiful fabric stores in our area and it is super-stocked for the amount of square footage which I think makes if feel a little uncomfortable your first time. There is so much to see and it's all high-quality that you may feel a little intimidated. However, once you start talking to the staff you will find that they are very friendly. Even after not going into the store for months they are always still very friendly whenever I go in, but they will give you freedom to shop without interference unless/until you engage them first. I think Melinda and her daughter should give them another chance, especially when they're having a sale!

Thanks for the info Sewmanygirls. I will tell her to give them another chance. And you are right, even tho she is 40 years old, she just started sewing about 4 years ago. She does beautiful work and has a great eye for colors (she loves making handbags). She's the news director at a tv station and rarely gets intimidated by anyone, but with sewing, she is still just a novice since her job doesn't leave her a lot of time to sew.
