    OK, as you may know I usually do everything by hand, but I am developing some interest in trying to do some things on machine.
    The drawback being my machine is so basic... like just one step up from needle and thread. And not really financially or mentally ready for a "really good" quilting machine. Well, I went to Target the other day and saw a machine that said it has "quilting features" and the best thing.. it was on sale!
    Under $100.. well, ok.. so it's only a dollar under .. but still under..lol
    I mulled it over, came home, went back and did a little more reading .. then saw it was the ONLY one on the shelf... to make an already long story a touch shorter.. it is now sitting in my living room. It's a Brother XL 3750.
    Not real fancy, but does have a walking foot, a quilting foot and a 1/4" quilting foot, a "flat bed attachment" to make the bed larger to support big projects.
    Also has a number of built in stitches, buttonholer, etc... Nah.. I'm not excited.... nah.. not me...lol Hope this was a good buy.

    sounds like you can't go wrong with that toy. Be careful, it can be like drugs ...once you try the "light" stuff, it's easy to get addicted to the "heavy" (read EXPENSIVE) ones...

    A new sewing machine thrills me, even the old ones I find at the thrift stores. You will love it! You got a great buy too.

    What a great deal! Enjoy your machine, it can be so much fun to play with a new toy. But boy, is Esqmommy correct. After a while you start coveting all the bells & whistles, I especially am lusting over the automatic thread cutter! LOL
