You have read your sewing machine reviews, you are armed with a list of projects to complete, but now you need to decide where to purchase your new sewing machine.
Most major retailers sell sewing machines, as well as most big box stores. Discount and department stores sell sewing machines, as well as many small local stores. There are several on-line retailers who sell sewing machines as well. The choices are as varied as the sewing machines themselves.
When you are deciding where to purchase your machine you should check with the dealer about several topics. Obviously, you should shop around for the best price available. Many retailers offer coupons, trade-in opportunities, or offers to beat competitors best prices.
You may also find that retailers want your business, and that many of them have classes available to the public. You will want to make sure that the retailer has an open return policy in case the machine does not meet your expectations, or fulfill your needs.
Another good idea is to not only read the sewing machine reviews, but also reviews on the retailer from which you are making your purchase. Consumers experiences with the machines and the stores where they are purchased can provide valuable insight into the best machine for you, and the best store from which to buy it.
