    Smile My new Ambition

    My Pfaff dealer had a special on the Ambition 1.0 this month and I finally "gave in" and treated myself. It is an amazing machine and seems to fit the bill for quilting. It doesn't have any embroidery capabilities, but I wasn't looking for that. It's lighter than my 2140 so will be easier to haul around to classes. Has a lot of built in stitches and everything is out in the open, not buried in the computer. Also, since my hips and knees are starting to show some wear and tear, it has an on/off button so it's not necessary to use the foot pedal.

    The flower beds are going to have to endure their weeds one more day because I'll be sewing and smiling!!

    Have fun with your new machine. Don't let those weeds wait too long. It's hard to control them when they get a foothold.

    Good choice! I have had mine since last fall and absolutely love it. It feeds fabric so straight and true - no veering off at the end. It also has most of the features of the big bucks machines. Enjoy!

    Weeds can wait. A new sewing machine can't. Invest in a machete to beat back the jungle from your door when you need to run out for more material.

    I have a good friend who just bought an Ambition 1.0 over the weekend. She took it home and immediately started sewing on it. I hope you enjoy yours as much as she is enjoying hers.

    That's the machine I was really drooling over. Maybe in a few years. Enjoy it!
