    i had a look at their Juki TL98Q, and actually they seem to be between 50 and 100 more than others I've seen. They look to be on par with others.

    I might have overlooked it, but I didn't see anything that said they were an authorized dealer for any of the brands. I think manufacturer warranties are only valid if you buy from an authorized dealer.

    Dealers tend to raise the prices because most of them offer "free" classes when you first purchase your machine and they are also available to answer questions about your machine. Also, if your dealer is close by and offers repair services this can be a lot cheaper and faster than sending your machine out elsewhere.

    The Husquvarna Viking Designer II they have on first page of the site, the $499 price if you'll click on it & read, it's for the embroidery Unit only, not the sewing/embroidery machine. My Designer Viking I with USB was almost $5,000 & most Des IIs sold for more than that two years ago. That's where they get people to think that the entire machine w/ everything is $499 & they call & once they get you to the store, they start the pitch. Do your homework so the sly dealers don't get over on you.

    i priced out a blindstitcher for garments, which is a one-piece unit, and they are far and away the best deal out there. there's no shipping aver $300. and if the warranty is given by the manufacturer, i believe it's in effect no matter where you buy it, as long as it was new and you're the original owner. as for service, dealers would have you think that they are the only ones that are allowed to fix your machine, but that's not true. any certified repairmen can do it.

    i'm sure it's like everything else: do your homework on pricing and know what's included.

    I saw a Janome 6500. The dealer I bought my Janome 6600 from said the 6500 was no longer on the market. I wonder if that means these machines are not sold in Sewing Machines stores. Be careful where you buy. I perfer to buy from a dealer that will stand behind his product.
