Oh Adam, You know I Luv Ya!!!

My hunny and I had a whole day together and went out to run some errands.  Tom had researched the best price on laminate flooring, so we took a drive to Hillsboro and bought new flooring for the living/dining room and kitchen.  We stopped at Aloha Vac and Sew to look at machines as I have been shopping for a new machine for Sara.  I was totally honest that I probably would be buying online, so of course the salesperson didn't want to spend any more time than necessary on me.  Tom schooled me on how being honest wouldn't get me the information I was seeking.  She did admit to me that the Brother ULT2003D was a lemon of a machine (No news to me!!!), which validated my sentiments!  Tom suggested we go to Montavilla Sewing to see what they had and since we were in Hillsboro I suggested we go to the Beaverton store because it was only 3-4 miles away from where we were.  Everytime I have seen my beloved repair man Adam, it's been at the Portland store, so imagine my surprise when we walked in and Adam was there!  I knew we would be walking out with a machine!  I explained what Sara needed and he pointed us in the direction of a good solid machine that sewed through 9 layers of denim like butter...LIKE BUTTER!   There's nothing like having a great sewing guy!!!

Which machine will sew through 9 layers of denim? I'd like a machine that will perform that feat.

The machine I bought for Sara is the Janome Sewist 500. It's a mechanical machine...good and solid! Here's a link with the specs: http://janome.com/index.cfm/Machines/Sewing-Quilting/Sewist_500

Awesome - she'll be getting a great machine! I love my sewing machine guy, too! He's the best.

Hi there. Just wondering if you are willing to divulge how much you paid for the Sewist 500? I'd like to get this machine for my mom to replace her old Kenmore that I broke! I saw a post elsewhere by someone who paid $325.
Anyway, thank you so much for your help!

There's a guy like that at my local Sew and Vac. His name is Mark, and he's an excellent tech.
