I recently took my Baby Lock sewing machine in for repair at Sew-n-Such for the first time. Having had a bad experience at another sewing shop, I was reluctant to entrust my machine to yet another repairperson. Shop owner Joanne was so sweet, understanding my worries and assuring me that her repair person, George, was a certified Baby Lock repairman. I've since picked up my machine and it runs like new! As I hadn't been to the new Sew-n- Such store location (just a couple of stores west of the old location in Franktown Corners) , I took a moment to look around. Joanne has three cozy rooms with every sewing supply you could possibly need ( I bought a new walking foot) and gorgeous fabric to boot. I love the individual attention this local shop owner can give and the overall warm feeling of the store. I half expect to see a little table with a pot of tea and cookies tucked into a corner this Fall and Winter. It's just that cute! I've put Sew-n-Such on my list of locally owned shops to support because of the variety of merchandise, the interesting displays, and the individual attention.
Imagine a store where all the fabric you can dream of and all the supplies you could ever need combined with a service staff that surpasses any store in Reno. I have been to the other stores and their service cannot compare with the service given in this store! Also, if you are looking at a sewing machine, Bernina is the way to go! I have had my old 830 for too many years to count and it still runs like a charm, but i just wish it would die so I can have an excuse to buy a new machine! that new 830 is just a dream! Support going batty! Kay
A favorite shop. I've had quilts machine quilted at Sierra Sewing and the results were spectacular. I have an adult daughter with special needs who loves to sew. The staff treats her with patience, respect and encouragement when she visits the store. I'm always greeted with kindness when I shop. A+ experience every time!
