    Oh my goodness! I went shopping for a Toyota and came home with a Mercedes!

    I love my Vintage machines, but had a hankering for something a little fancier. I was looking at mid-range Baby Locks, but my husband started asking comparison questions about different machines. Next thing I knew, I had fallen in love with the Elissimo Gold. We sat for a good long time thinking about which machine to get, but when the saleswoman came back and offered another $1000 off, we went for it. Will I ever learn all the features this has? Yikes!

    Oh, what fun it will be to get to know your new machine. A little quilter envy in this end but I'm really happy for you

    Very Very nice. Take some classes and you'll love it even more!
    At least that's what I had to do before I loved my modern machines . . .
