    I just got a call from my mom and she told me if she could find a Viking 1 at a good price she would buy it for me. She has a couple of older vikings that are embroidery machines and said they are the best workhorse machines out there. When my cheap machine broke she gave me one of her Brothers to use. However since it has been on the brink twice now she decided it just isn't suited for all the piecing and quilting I do.. She said I really need that old workhorse. Hopefully we can go to her friends in the next couple of days so I can test drive hers.. my mom is just so excited i have a hobby realated to the one she loves. She said i need the proper machine and she knows i am short on cash. She is doing yet another generous thing for me.

    That's so sweet. My mom wanted a "new" sewing machine a few years ago. I had a Viking in my shed that I was not using. I let my mom have that one. She offered to pay me for it, but I told her after all she'd done for me, she could have it. I was happy to be able to do something for her.

    What a great Mom. This should be fun to search together for just the right machine. Thank you for sharing.
