    Okay, I have a few machines, but this is my favorite! Is it really that funny? It's the smoothest and "brightest" of them all! Am I the only one that loves the older models?

    Are the stitch patterns lit up? I love it!! :thumbup: My momma raised me with the philosophy that as long as it works there is no reason to replace it! I have two machines -- a little Janome that is a workhorse, and a computerized Pfaff. I love both of them for different reasons. Let them laugh all they want -- maybe they're just jealous!! :? ;-)

    I like the oldies, but goodies, too. Got a "new" one on the way, can hardly wait!
