    It can't be all bad! I have used my Singer for awhile, three or four years and certainly used the amount it cost me. But I was in the middle of sewing a quilt top together for my great neice Saturday night and it went 'klunk klunk' and the wheel wouldn't even turn anymore! I was so aggravated....but today I went to my LQS and bought a mid-range Elna. The 3210. I love it, I finished the top and got the back started. It's quiet, it's fast, love it, love it.

    It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but the next one I get I will pay for with quilts or sewing for people and I'll pay cash. The one I want is over $2,000 but it will quilt, embroider, etc. etc. Elna is all metal parts except for the exterior. That's a plus in my book.

    Back to the sewing now that I have a machine that works again. I dug out an old dressmaker machine but it's old and it just wasn't up to the quilting thing, ya know?

    Hugs everyone,
    Sharon
