    I Got a New Babylock!!!

    I bought myself a new Babylock Seranade last Wed, April 4th. Now, I'm happy but, also so sad. I finally made time today to get it out of the box but, now I have to go out of town for a few days and can't play with her. It's driving me crazy. I think I was nuts to buy it when I didn't have time to play. I may just have to go have a good cry. Does anyone have a tissue?

    Can you at least take the manual with you so you can read up on it and be ready to play when you get back ? That would be hard to look at but not be able to play with ... here's the tissue

    Congratulations on your new toy! You can dream about it every night while you are gone. And taking the manual along is a good idea...just don't leave it anyplace!

    I've had my Serenade almost a year and absolutely love it. I'm sure you are going to love yours too. (when you finally get to use it!)

    OMG, I didn't know what a Babylock was; so I Googled it and discovered what it is. How could you leave? I'd have had to postponed my plans or taken it with me. That is too wonderful of a toy to leave so soon.

    Congratulations on your new purchase. I got my new machine last week and am just getting into all it can do. Enjoy dreaming about it while you are away.

    Vondae, I'll cry with you! I bought my Melody last week and I haven't opened it since I am moving! But I will take the advice of one here who said read the manual. I own now 4, 3 of them sewing/embroidery and one serger and I will say I have never ever had a problem! so Vondae, when you get back have fun playing with it and I will too! Glad I bought mine when I did cause I got an email from the lqs that Babylock is raising their prices as of April 23! Glad I got mine before they went up.

    I would be interested in what you and other Serenade owners have to say about your machines. I was considering buying one and changed my mind because all the reviews I read were bad. So, what so all you Serenade owners have to say about that?

    Thanks to all of you for commiserating with me. And, I didn't have the sense to take the manual with me. But, Today is finally the day. I'm going to sew on her if I have to stay up all night.
    EvelynJ, I couldn't postpone my trip to doctors, although I wanted to. I have an inplanted morphine pump, and if it runs out it could potential kill me. SO, needless to say, we don't let it get to close to that empty mark. I home now and itching to use her. So, I'm off of here and headed to my sewing room. Thanks Ladies. You are all super great and so supportive and helpful. We are blessed to have this board. Vondae (alias-MiMi)

    Where did you read these reviews? Remember, if a site accepts advertising, the reviews are inherently biased. Every "review" site I've seen accepts advertising. Only Consumer Reports (that I know of) doesn't accept advertising.

    ChaiQuilter--The reviews I read were on the website patternreviews.com. There were 4 reviews: 3 users said they would not recommend the machine, and the fourth said "maybe". Only the first listed one went into details of machine problems (and the details were ugly!). I just went back to the website, and there are advertisements there--didn't pay any attention to that at the time. I don't know what consumer reposrts has to say about the machine because I don't have a subscription with them, in order to find out. I am going to post a new thread asking for users opinions here.

    I have the Serenade's cousin, Pfaff Smarter C1100, for about a month. I love it. You have to get used to how the new machine reacts and I think sometimes, without help, the new owner can get frustrated. With my machine machine quirks, i called my dealer and read lots of forums, and figured my machine out, and think it is wonderful.

    The stitches are beautiful, DFS, cutter, knee lift, sturdy, no vibration at high speeds
