    DH bought me a new toy today :)

    http://www.singerco.com/products/154...idence-quilter

    I had a Brother that crapped out on me and was not worth fixing. Have been sewing on an old Atlas which I wasn't even sure how to thread proper.

    So far, today, I love this machine. Thanks DH. Sure, it's not a Bernina, nor are we wealthy...I can dream!

    What a great DH! Looks like a really nice machine, and has very good reviews. How did he know what kind of machine you'd like? Honestly, I don't think mine would begin to know where to start as far as features, etc.

    Congratulations and enjoy!

    It really doesnt matter what machine you use as long as you are happy with it and everytime you sit down to sew you have a silly grin on!

    Thanks. Not like that. I asked him to buy me a new machine and he gave me a $500.00 budget. This was $399.00, bobbins 5 bucks, total around $425.00.

    Grinning I am! I also read the reviews (after the fact). Many gave a thumbs down regarding the free motion foot/function. I had to try it. True, instructions vague in the manual; however, I already knew how to use it and it works very nicely. I can't say a lot for the operator without practice
