A couple of years ago I decided to start quilting. I walked into Aunt Mary’s quilt shop and asked where I could get a good quilting machine. Bill Williams was very highly recommended at the Smokey Point Sewing and Vacuum. I bought my very first quilting machine from him. It Is an Elna 5200. It is a wonderful beginners machine. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions and gave me excellent advise. He listens to his customers and provides you with great customer service. He stands behind what he sells. I recently decided to upgrade my quilting machine to an Elna 7300 and he let me trade in my old one. I love my new quilting machine now. He also sells Janome. They too are great quilting machines. So, if you are looking for a great quilting machine, go to Smokey Point Sewing and Vacuum and talk to bill, you won’t be disappointed.
