Until recently, it had been YEARS since I'd quilted or used a sewing machine. Back then, I lived in a small town and my machine was periodically cleaned by a retiree who worked out of his home. In 2002, he charged me $20 .
So it was a bit of sticker shock when I asked the local vacuum/sewing store what they'd charge to clean my "new" old machine: $85. Is this the standard going rate now? (and, yes, I know $20 was A Deal, even back then)
