When to buy a new sewing machine
I have two old machines. One is a 17 yr. old Viking and one is a Brother XR/40 bought at Cosco over ten years ago. Both still sew, but the Viking is slowing down when I try to sew bulky fabric. I talked to the repair shop and was told that the service and cleaning would cost $150.00. The Brother still sews, but it is an awkward machine to use. The needle threader broke a long time ago.
I am interested in the Brother Computer Sewing and Embroidery machine sold by Amazon. for $358.99 Do any of you own this machine and would you recomend it. I like many of the features of this machine. I probably wouldn't do enough embroidery to buy an expensive embroidery machine.
