Hi Tiny Dove,
Before you purchase, make sure that you get what you really need. I started my sewing experience on a Singer (sewing only). It dates back to the 80's. I put my sewing hobby on hold and when I returned back, I made lots of wonderful projects. When the computer fever was running on a high note, I also purchase a computer. There it was, when I found out that there were machines out there that did things and I had no knowledge of it.
I started with my Brother 170 (Disney collection.) I wanted to get more out of something that had it's limits. I then purchased my Janome 9700. Now, this baby is my treasure. I try to take so much care of her, like if she was my own child. Inclusive, I took out my Serger which I had abandom and winded up, having to dismantle the machine, since it was JAM
from NON USE. Today, I will put it back together, after bathing it with one CAN OF OIL.
My son saw all my manchines and asked: "Mom, how many machines you have?"
I responded, only 5 and this includes a TINY SERGER, I purchased on a sale.
Men have Car Hobbies, us ladies have Machine Hobby.
Let us know, what you wind up with and NOW LET'S SEE THOSE PROJECTS
Until we meet again in some courner of this place....
Your new Friend,
