Looking to buy a new sewing machine, serger, embroidery machine, or quilting machine? Here’s what to consider before you purchase.
I recommend Baby Lock sewing machines and ABQ is an authorized retailer of the machines. I was so happy with the Baby Lock machines as an ambassador that it was a natural fit when I wanted to expand the store.
