    Congratulations on your new machine! You will love it. Embroidery can be incorporated into your quilting. Have fun creating.

    Boy, I would have had to do the same if I had come across a deal like that!

    Enjoy it!

    so happy for you, it was meant for you to have a new machine

I then asked again what USED machines he had in. He had a Baby Lock Ellure Plus with embroidery unit for $900. I hadn't even thought about the embroidery part, but since it came with the machine it was a bonus. I tried it out and decided I had to jump at it. Called DH to make sure there was still Christmas money in the account and bought it. I was going to take my old machine back to them for $200 store credit, but DH says for that amount I should just keep it for when I want to take it to a class. I like the way he thinks. It helped that he has been on a buying binge with some of his hobbies lately. I've just about played the Christmas money card for as much as I can since I bought a new bicycle 2 weeks ago.
    So, my $50 coupon ended up costing me a little over $1000. Such a deal!!!!

    Cool! I have the same type but it's a Trek 7500....I LOVE it! We ride the Erie Canal Trail in CNY and have ridden as far as Lockport in WNY and Utica on the other end. I ride several times a week in the warm weather. Quilting is so sedentary so I need to MOVE when I'm not sewing.

    Happy riding!!!!

    You got a great buy! My DH would probably be the same way. Just bought a Brother Laura Ashley and absolutely love it! He was with when I bought it - his remark, "it's what you do". Gotta love it! Life is good!
    Love 4 stchen
