Hi, I am looking to buy preferably a Janome sewing machine and can't seem to find anywhere that sells them here. If anyone knows of anywhere on the Costa del Sol I could get hold of one without having to order online from the UK if you could let me know that'd be great!

Bloody good question! Lidl have one this week - they and Aldi often have them, but you just can't be sure when. Carrefour have a few, although not a very good choice. Corte Ingles have a few overpriced machines. We gave up trying to find a decent make (wanted a Singer) at a decent price, and bought from Amazon.

If using Amazon UK, look for free super saver delivery. (= free delivery to Spain) If buying from Amazon.es I would recommend using a prepaid debit card if you have one, or brace yourself for being debited twice and having to wait a week or so for a refund of the second payment - amazingly, after complaining bitterly, Amazon admitted they are aware of the problem, but just don't seem to be able to figure a way around it. It's something to do with payments going through a bank outside Spain, and having to make a "test" charge on your card first. Same thing happened to me with National Geographic. (Amazon bank in Ireland, NG in Holland I think) I've heard the same thing sometimes happens with RyanAir.

Adam,

                         Maybe an email, asking where in Malaga you can buy may help. 

 

The Janome Company email address is (Columbia) info@janome.com.co

 

(Maquina de coser is sewing machine). 

 

Another option would be to ask in  'sewing shops'.  That is the way we have located spares for my wife's industrial machines.

Not sure where John got that from, or why you'd want to contact their Columbia office, but I think you may get further with sales@janome-uk.co.uk
Just checked their website, and they don't appear to have an official distributor in Spain, though, and I think you may be better off getting it from Amazon.
