What are you looking for?
Here's some reviews. There is another site with a large amount of reviews that seem suspicious...almost one day after another and some twice by the same person. I'm sure you'll get some good suggestions here soon. You can google the name of just about any place and see reviews but you have to really read and take some with a grain of salt as people get paid to write reviews these days.

I bought my Janome 10000 and Janome Compulock from them when I lived in New Jersey. There prices were good. I am thinking about upgrading and will stop in there when I am back up there for a visit. I have also ordered accessories from them after I moved away and there service was great.

I don't know about that online sewing/vac place, but I've ordered online and had a good experience from Sew Vac Direct in Texas. They're very courteous and helpful.

thanks everyone.

I think I'm the only person that did not like their Juki F600. There wasn't anything wrong with the machine but it was just too complicated for me, I really wanted something simpler and I just didn't bond with it. I'm not a complete novice when it comes to sewing but I think it just intimidated me.

On the other hand I've always really liked the look of the Juki HZL E61 and best of all it looks simpler and hopefully something that I wouldn't have to keep dragging the manual out.

I know they have some new machines (K65) and (K85) and if I can't find a E61 I'll probably look at one of those, although I really hate those colors.

thanks again.

I purchased a serger from Ken's Sewing Center in Alabama and was very satisfied with the price and service.
