    Red face Pfaff Ambition 1.5 Sewing Machine

    Well I did it today !LOL Actually put it on layaway.
    I had to take in my Brother machine as it locked it up for the umpteenth time while I was working on a tumbler quilt .. UGH !! I was so upset- IT just shut down and would not move period. So I took it into our friendly Sew & Vac place(which the wonderful repairman was able to fix it in a jiffy); she sells Pfaffs and I saw the sign for the other 2 new Ambitions on display.
    Well fortunately, she had the new Pfaff Ambition 1.5 and I put it on layaway; gonna be in my sewing room very soon !! Happy camper ..
    I asked her if they had one for sewing on, and its all computerized which is wonderful in itself so many new buttons to push and play with OHHHHHHHHHHHHH yeah!!! Nice for quilting as she let me run a sample though it and boy you talk about giddy up and go go ..
    Thought about putting it on the credit card-but I just cannot see paying the interest when in a few weeks I will have it and can sew to my hearts contentment.. I just called and asked her to put 2 dozen bobbins on the contract for when I pick it up. Never can have enough bobbins !LOL
    AND YES I brought the Brother machine home- Brother is still my go to machine for the back up machine.

    Layaway is better than using a credit card, no interest. I have a straight stitch only Babylock Jane, it works very well. I have two back up machines. Enjoy your new machine, when you get it.

    It's great that they brought back layaway. I tend to use my Am. Exp. card for electronic purchases because it extends the warranty, but with luck your machine won't have any problems. I hope you love your new Pfaff as much as I love my old one.

    That is wonderful, I know you will love your new machine. I am the lay away addict. I think its the greatest thing any store came up with.

    The Brother machine quit, so I guess that I will have to put it on the card as I have so many projects to complete before Christmas. The Brother just locked up tighter than a drum, and luckily I was able to get the material out..
    So it will wait till I can get over there to pick it up, and put it on card.. Oh well..it is what it is for now ..Till I can get ahold of Brother and see what they can do to fix it, so I can use it as my back up machine.

    Thanks for all the congrats, I appreciate it very much and woooooooooooohoooooooooooooo ..
