    I Didn't Mean to buy it-Really

    Went to the fabric/machine store today to spend a $50 coupon. Made the mistake of asking what used machines they had in. First he showed me the next step up from the Brother that I now have (which has been in the shop for 3 weeks). It was a beautiful machine but at $1200 I'd have to think about it. 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!!!!

    You only come this way and as my dear Irish Aunt Ruth used to say "Dear, you need to be good to yourself every now and then". Enjoy

    Bargains and good husbands are hard to find. Get them when you find them.

    Good for you! That was a great deal, and you were very right to jump at it, especially since your regular machine was only worth $200 in store credit. Sounds like it was time to spoil yourself with a newer, nicer machine. You'll love it! I don't have a Baby Lock, but I have a high quality machine, and it sure does spoil you to sew on something really nice.

    Happy Sewing/Quilting!

    Hi,

    I have a Babylock Ellure....not the plus that is computer compatible.....but you'll love your new machine!!

    I also the Elegante2 Babylock that I do most of my embroidery on, but still use my Ellure when I need to get two projects done at the same time. I mostly use it for classes and sewing at the lake in the summer. Love it still!

    Have a blast!

    Our lives are like quilts....bits and pieces....joys and sorrows....stitched together with love.
    Babylock Crescendo, Elegante2, and Ellure.....for the love of sewing!

    I bet the sewing machine followed you around the store and made 'puppy dog eyes' at you the whole time!

    Haha! Way to go, good for you! I hope you have many happy hours sewing with your new machine! You will have to talk with my sister about the machine embroidery--that has turned out to be a happy pastime for her. You will have to show me your new machine the next time I am there! Carolyn

    You will love your new Baby Lock. I have one and wish I could have found it for $900.00. I paid... well...more.
