I wanted to sew. I had limited resources. I purchased a machine from someone on Craigslist. My expectations were that I'd make a few dresses a year for my daughter, maybe a couple other things, but that was it. Then I realized I like quilting. Trying to sew the thickness of quilts knocks my needle out of alignment and each time I take the machine in for a once-over, it's $90. I might as well buy a new machine for the amount these tune-ups are costing me!
I have a Brother CS 100. The little sewing machine that thought it could. LOL
Am I asking too much of my machine?
Also, once my husband graduates in May and gets a good job, I want to upgrade. What machine would you recommend?
