Has anyone dealt with The Sewing Machine Shop in Walnut Creek, CA? I am wondering if they are a reliable retailer for used and new SM. Thank you for any help you can give!

I had only positive experiences when I lived in Castro Valley.

Wow...you all are such a blessing! Who would know that I would find a number of you familiar with this one retailer? Thank you so much for the feedback!

BTW...I did check Yelp...good reviews. But sometimes I am leery of some of the review sites since reading and hearing that some people write false reviews to promote their products or stores. I am not real familiar with Yelp and was not sure.

I've purchased three machines from Dan in the last two years. I've had nothing but good experiences with him and the folks in the shop there.
Edited to add that one of the machines was a used machine and was priced well. He carries and sells a good selection of used machines.

I purchased a used machine there about a month ago, and have no regrets at all on machine or price They were nice, not aggressive at all and showed all the different machines that I was interested in. I took a beginning with your machine type class, and was pleasantly surprised by how more informative it was that I expected.
