Thanks to those who responded to my question about what machine to buy. As soon as I saw the Bailey 13 I knew it was perfect for my needs! I have never spent that much money on something just for my pleasure!
It will be shipped from New York, so I will get it in about a week! That will give me time to finish up some sewing I need to do, cause I know once I get it here I will have to get aquainted with my present to myself. I am a happy camper!!
