    Hi everyone. I have some bad news...my $60.00 sewing machine that I have used for two years to see if I like quilting shot craps. Even worse, I came home from work to find out that my hubby had it apart in a hundred pieces. Good news is that he wasn't able to fix it and even better news is that I got an early Christmas present!! I got a new Janome 3160 QDC!! I love it! Hopefully I will be able to learn how to do some new things.

    You gotta love handy husbands, especially when they have to buy you something new to replace what they took apart. (I got a new stove that way once.)
    Have fun with your new machine!

    Sounds like a win-win situation to me. First hubby really tried to help because he knew you loved to sew and second....You get a new machine. Lucky you for both!

    Congratulations on your new Christmas Gift. I've had a $79 Sewing Machine for 5 years. It has pieced 6 quilts and is still running. I did buy a new one, just in case. I don't have a husband to dismantle the cheap on so, will just keep pluging it in until it goes to SM heaven.
