Hello, I have been lurking on this site for a while now. I love the wonderful openenss and sharing that I see. Great information.
I want to buy the Evolvé and was wondering about the price. I have an idea , but can any one tell me what I should expect to pay? I am afraid to end up paying too high like I did with my Bernina.
I am in Montreal but will be taking a trip to New England area in a week or two so I could shop there as well if the price difference is worth it.

Hi Muddyclothes!

In Montreal there's a little shop on Ste Catherines' near the Big-O that sells the Babylock.

I haven't been there before but it's one of the only places I know of that carries them. I've been told that 'Club Tissus' on the south shore and Laval has them but I haven't looked.

If you find out how much they are here, I'd love to know.

Thank you Tammy. I will call that shop. I found one in Laval as well that sells them. Have not been there yet but the price they quoted me on the phone was not impressive at all compared to what I saw mentioned in another thread.. even with the exchage rate. They are way too high so I think I will have to look for one in NH when I go there.

I was really hoping some people in the US would tell me what prices they have seen for this model so I know what to expect to pay there.

Muddy, if you check on line they have reviews of machines and sergers and prices are usually given. Also you might want to check with owners on SewingWorld Commons. I hope this helps.

I live in the states so I'm not sure how prices compare. I bought my evolve last fall for 1200 dollars. ( I think!) It was a demo version. I'm starting to love it. :) There is a lot to learn but having the video with it has helped me figure it out.

re: Evolve pricing... prices vary depending on where you are... I've been looking for an Evolve, but I have definite ideas as to what I'm willing to pay... There are two dealers in my area... one wants $1850, the other wants $2200... but I have a line on a dealer in Ellicot City Maryland who will sell it for $1499, also Atlanta Sewing in Atlanta sells its for about $1650... Klaiber sewing center in Indiana will sell it for $1500... You just have to do a lot of checking... dealers will not give you a price on the internet and some will not give you a price over the phone,... just keep posting on the various forums and sooner or later, somebody will let you know of a dealer close to you who will give you a decent price... of course, this only works if you're willing to be patient... if you want it right now... well, you know how it goes.... then you have to pay what they ask...

just my 2 cents...

life is too short, not to explore

thank you everyone who replied!
I have bought my Evolvé!
I found an 2 week old demo for $1589 + trade-in (of a serger so old and cantankerous I was ready to throw it out the window.)
I thought that was a pretty good deal. I went to New Hampshire to get it so no tax! I had to go there anyway to pick up to 2 collector dolls I had ordered. I'm very pleased and just got home last night.. now I have to learn to use it!!!
