Mentioning to my sister that my machine needed cleaning, she said this was the only place to go! Her machine had been serviced here, fair pricing, and it sews better now than it did when it was new!!

"I am so happy to find the Sewing Studio! Sue is a great Viking dealer. She has helped me progress from my first Viking enbroidery machine of a 1+ to a new Designer Ruby. I remember how frustrated I felt at not being able to use the 1+ to its capabilities. Because of the classes and sewing groups she nurtures, my retirement is so much more fun than I ever thought it would be. I am continually learning something new about sewing and machine embroidery while making new friends at the same time."

"Love the shop & Sue is a great lady to do business with. Always willing to help you find everything you need. And if you join any or all of the classes you are sure to meet a great bunch of ladies. And you'll learn alot too."

Being the only sewing machine dealer in Northern Indiana from Illinois to Ohio and north of Indianapolis who is a member of the Better Business Bureau (by invitation) I am sure it is repairs that draw complaints, not the machines I sell or the lessons that are given. Having been a consumer long before I became a dealer, I know repairs caused nightmares in my sewing history. So I am delighted to provide such a wonderful service technician and have my own machines in good hands too!

- Sue B., the Sewing Studio  

Good job, having sewed and embroidered, it is working perfectly!

Repairs have been great and my machine works fine.

"I am loving my Viking Serger I got from you over a month ago! It surely makes my life so much easier to sew the skirts for the skirt purses that I am making. Also I wanted to ask how to leave a testimonial for you and your shop! I am so thankful that I came to you vs. other stores for Viking machines! You are so helpful and a great person! Thank you, Sue !!!"

"I just wanted to take a minute and thank you and the group for such a great day with the Serger Circle. I learned so much, got comfortable with using my machine, and actually completed a couple of napkins. All 12 are done now and I completed a scarf as well, while I was at it! I realized that the leftover fabric from my kitchen curtains would probably yield a dozen or so napkins so I now have them cut out to do more practicing. What a great group of women to spend a day with, so helpful and friendly. I'm already looking forward to the October class. Thanks again." 

-Linda L. McHenry, IL

"I just love that I bought my machine here. I have the freedom to call or come in for help when I need it."

"I have been sewing for 60 years and have never had a sewing helper as professional and helpful as you. You are always willing to help and the turn around time for machine repairs has been very good." 

-Rita W., Hanna, IN

"I live in Crown Point and have a salon & spa in Valparaiso. Sue was referred to me as a client and the moment I met her, I couldn't stop thinking about fulfilling my goal of learning how to sew. Not only does she sell top of the line sewing machines, she makes sure you know how to fully use them She was confident she could teach me and she very patiently has. What a great place!" 

- Michelle M. Crown Point, IN

"I had a Singer machine that was always breaking down in the middle of projects. Sue suggested the Viking 100Q and I am delighted with it! I love not having to use a foot pedal. Thank you for my first lesson. I sewed on knit t-shirt material and on pleather. Looking forward to spending more time learning my new machine with Sue and my poodle friend, Blondie."

"I do so love your store."
