I bought my husband a new grill yesterday. It's gas and charcoal and has a smoker. Today, he decided I should get a new sewing machine. I currently have the Singer Confidence Stylist. I don't have any complaints, but I have been saying a wider throat and embroidery features would be great. So we went to our local dealer. He has Janome and Husqvarna. I didn't have a budget, other than I myself didn't really want to go over $1000. I get buyers remorse before I even buy, so spending money is hard for me. I ended up with a Viking Topaz 30. Obviously went over the $1000 budget, by another $1100! He added in 4 other feet and I get 25% off any accessories. I also get lifetime unlimited classes. It was a good deal, but I have a hard time spending money on myself so I'm freaking out. I hope I love it. Right now though, I still have sweaty palms from the check I wrote!
