    YEAP! Arron is TIRED of having NO ONE to sew on CUB SCOUT PATCHES!!!! So as I was sewing on his Bobcat patch today; I could almost hear Cathy say What are you doing? You can't do it that way!" And I also could see her shaking her head as I did my frankenstien stitches; and that is an insult to Frank! HA HA HA!! It was NOT not good! But I got some decent ones on there till I can get a nice little one and hopefully have someone show me how to run the damn thing!!!!

    So the question is... It is either Hancock Fabrics or Jo-Ann's that has a nice little "ecconmy" one that runs about 50 bucks give or take. I was told this one would do the job just fine. Is it a decent machine or should a get a bigger one that will have more options. Keep in mind I am only doing patches and maybe a light "possible's bag" type stuff.

    HEP ME!! HEP ME!!!!! As my dad say's once in awhile.
    TNX ya' all.

    Walmart has one for 79.95 that would work for you also :thumbup: Get one that has straight and zig zag stitches - if you could get us a bit more information we could help you more - even the manufacture would help greatly :lol:

    Walmart.com has a Brother 25 stitches for less than $90 deliver to store postage is free. I love mine. I do a lot of applique and the other stitches come in handy

    Ok, I've shown this quilt a few times before. But this time I want to tell you that EVERY patch was sewn by me using my Elna Quilter's Dream. Don't buy a machine just to sew patches. Simply stitch just inside the satin edging using a denim needle. It worked for me and it can work for you. Save your money for more fabric, patterns, a class or just something fun.

    Will they let you try it out? If it works get it - if not you could get something else. Otherwise have you asked someone who does alterations how much they would charge?

    I have to say that I have tried sewing on girl scout patches with a variety of machines and can't get them to work. There is something really hard on the back of the patches. I can barely get a needle through to hand stitch them either. And, there isn't any glue that works (or that we have found). It is a real labor of love when I try to do this for my granddaughter.

    I have a super cheap Brother (under $80) from Amazon, and it's great.
