I ordered a new Brother CS6000i just a couple of days ago. I was to expect it between Jan 12th and Jan 24th. Well, I figured it would be closer to the 24th. But boy was I happy when my DH called me at work and told me I had received a sewing machine in the mail. I hadn't even told him yet that I ordered one.LOL. All the information I read from this board is how I decided what machine to buy and where not to buy it from. I saved a lot of money by going with your suggestions. So thank you so very much. Needless to say, we are having leftovers for supper and I am getting ready to try out my new machine. It has been over 30 years since I bought a new machine. I am a new quilter and can't wait to see how my projects turn out.
