    I looked at one in Tennessee-and that machine could do everything-I think it breathed on it's own-but the demo for the full machine took the dealer 1-1/2 hours, before she sent me into sticker shock-if I had known before the demo, I would have left-Maybe you should wait a few years for the price to come down-The Fon's ladies can afford one, but me I'm on limited income-nice to look at though-really pretty

    I saw Mary at a quilt expo and I liked her. She does not think she is "all that" and knows she is still learning. We aren't getting the show on our local station right now (getting very old Georgia Bonesteel shows). I use some basic brothers and vintage machines.

    I like Mary Fons. We can't expect Maryanne & Liz to be here for ever and someone has to take over.

    Isn't that the truth!! Heirs and nursing homes. We have seen it firsthand where if there is money, the home gets paid with those resources before governmental sources kick in. So sad to see all that hard earned money go like that knowing if they should have enjoyed it.
    DH and I have thought many times about spending savings, how to use retirement funds when we get there, etc. etc. We are of the mindset that we will use the disposable income to our liking, versus leaving it to the kids who can make their own way on their own terms without our advice. We have things to do, people to see, and places to go before we call it a day.
