    Sounds like you got an excellent good buy! Good for you!
    Actually, it sounds like you got a really TERRIFIC buy!
    I have a friend who bought a brother such as yours, and it would do darning ... great! Except the feed dogs didn't go down, and they were expecting me to quilt with that thing with NO darning foot!
    Right now, I am especially enjoying the fact that you got a quarter inch foot ... since I can't find any of mine, and since I never bothered to use them, and since I have FINALLY found out that the machine I am currently using at the Post ... doesn't have an accurate quarter inch anything ... I am glad you have one.
    ANd, that extended table! Good deal! Those things cost almost a hundred dollars on their own!
    Figure almost fifty dollars for all those feet, almost a hundred dollars for the extension table ... how much did you pay for that machine again??? LOL
    Good job!

    Great buy enjoy. One of the gal's in quilt guild bought a new machine with Quilters companion on it she was so excited and said she didn't know if that meant she should sew with it or sleep with it. Have fun.

    I just bought a 1947 Singer Featherweight on Ebay to use for quilting classes. They say it's one of the best ever made. It only weight 11 lbs. I was so excited. I even stayed up to about 1:30 am to win that bid.
    Finally, something around here older than me (1949~)

    I'm so glad you took a step into the 21st century!!!! You will love the speed. Sometimes it is not necessary to have a lot of whistles and bells.

    Wow, sounds like a great deal, especially with the extra stuff included. I think a basic machine is great for most everything. I have a machine that does a number of decorative stitches and have never used anything beyond the blind hem stitch (I do clothes, also) and the buttonhole stitch.

    Tippy - I am SO happy for you :D :D :D :D :D :D
    And it was nice to read the reinforcement of your decision by crkathleen having bought the same machine and being happy with it. Since you are a hand quilter (thus far LOL), the throat space is NOT going to hold you back.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your first project pictured here :wink:

    Unfortunately I had to work all week.....I keep telling myself it's to pay for fabric!! So I've just gotten a good start on my first project.. I'm not sure How big it will be, and I will wait and post pics.. hopefully this weekend. I'm just letting it tell me what it's going to be as I go along. The only thing I'll say right now is...........it's BRIGHT!!! but then would you expect anything else? and as I didn't use a pattern I have to go buy more fabric when I get a chance.. prolly Thursday...then chop it up and add it.
