I got a Brother XL 5340 from a lady at work. She bought it in Nov 2002 and never sewed a stitch on it! She was going to learn to sew, but just never got around to it.
She charged me $75 for it and a case, and even though its a few years old, it's brand new, so I don't think I got hurt any.
Yes, this machine already has a name,,,,,,now don't laugh at me about this, but if I'm going to spend countless late night hours with someone, I sure would rather it be a man.....so machine's name is Falan. It's an Indian name that means "productive" and I hope it proves to be. lol
Have a great week everyone!
