Had to stop in at the local sewing machine shop and came home happy!! The dealer was having a special ( I think it is all over the states) on a basic Babylock Machine for $97.00. A BL9. Normally double or more this price. I've Been looking for a machine that I could pick up and go with for classes and vacations. This should do it!! Small, light and all the basics!! Perfect for my needs. Just thought I would let you know in case others are looking.
