    Smile I bought a Jem!

    Its a Platinum 760, 3 yrs old and purrs like a kitten! I am SO excited! I purchased a new Elna 6 months ago but have been wanting something a little more portable to take to classes and retreats. I priced new machines and just couldn't justify the cost but I just happened to check on CL and found this one an hour away. She had only listed it the day before and the best thing of all it was only $125! She had it cleaned and checked in April by a guy with a high rating on Angie's list. And I love that my Elna feet will fit it.

    Its so portable I can even take it to work and sew on my lunch hour, and my mom is 87 yrs old and loves that I am sewing again...this will be great to take to her house and sew with her! I am so doing the happy dance right now!

    What a great find. My machines are too heavy to take anyplace. Someday I need to invest in a "traveling" machine

    Great deal! I have two Jems--a platinum (my favorite) and a gold and love them both.

    I have two Jem Golds and have never had one minute of trouble from them. They have been used by kids and many beginners and no hassle or frustration at all.
    Got fabric?
