    Most of my sewing machines are "vintage" from rummage sales for 20.00 to free, I love the old ones!
    Last year BF found one of the Brother SE350 for $189.00, when Walmart closed them out!
    I am NOT good with computers and the puppy chewed the cord in half, so Rob had to fix it.
    Last night I decided it HAD to get out of the box, and HOW FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT as scarry and intimidating as I thought!!!!!!!!! Mine isnt fancy, butthe letters are SO pretty, and nice, and I cant beleive how fun it is!
    Did anyone else get this machine? I am sure I could bother you with qeustions, lol!

    I have a Brother 8500 D. Luckily it sews regular too or it wouldn't ever get used.
    I don't even want to figure it out anymore. I paid $2,000 for it and would gladly sell it for $1,000.

    I have a Babylock Ellageo that I haven't used much for embroidery due to bobbin thread jamming and illness. Now it's in the shop so I have hopes of getting to use the embroidery part of it soon. My daughter has a commercial Babylock embroidery machine and does some fantastic things with it.

    I have the Singer Futura 150 embroidery machine and it is addicting. I just love it. I use it for embroidery and quilting. I can't wait to finish so I can embroider my label in a corner. I need to get my dd quilt back so I can label hers. Didn't think about it at the time.
