    I went to the chat and no one was there...if I don't tell someone I
    will explode...LOL My dear, dear, sweet husband purchased a
    Aurora 440 QE sewing machine for me today. It will embroider, and
    quilt(it has a stitch regulator) and I'm so excited I'm shaking. The
    last sewing machine I had new was 35 years ago.
    Ain't he a sweetheart...gotta love that man.

    Seems to me that most of our hubbys are very supportive of our hobby and really great men...
    I think we are lucky to have them...But, they are really lucky to have us!!!!
    Great that you got a new machine...I love my new Duetta and am keeping the 8500D...I can have 2 emb. going at once or a quilt/piecing and emb on the other machine...
    WooHOO!!

    That is so nice. Did you give him hints on what you wanted, or is he into sewing too? Mine wouldn't know where to start.

    Neither would mine, altho, he has been looking at longarms. lol
    How do I know this? I was searching thru the history on the computer looking for a website I had gone to, but couldn't remember the name. All of a sudden, I'm scrolling down and there are 2 sites for longarms. I haven't done any searching for them within the last 6 months and I clear the history on the computer at least monthly, so I know it was him!
    I wonder if he's looking to surprise me when we get back to the states. I know he will probably have it shipped to his mom and dads to hold for us until we get there.

    I went to the Bernina dealer with a girlfriend and they were offering
    24 months no interest to pay and $1,000 off. I called him up and told
    him they were on sale and I could get the embroidery module 3 or 4
    years down the road. He said 3 or 4 years down the road they won't
    make the module anymore you better get it all now. I really acted
    quick....my girlfriend was still in the store...and I was already loaded
    into her car. Didn't want to give him time to change his mind. LOL
    I just love having cell phones for taking care of business...then you
    can turn them off after the deal is agreed on and they can't reach you.
    LOL

    Oooohhhhhhh, now my keyboard is all wet from drool. You lucky, lucky, girl! I've been looking and have to go town to look further. I'd like to sit down in the store and try sewing on several different brands. My DH never minds whatever I spend on anything which is really nice.

    That is waaaay too exciting. You really have a keeper there. I'm sure you're busy now, trying out all the new things you can do. And to boot, a stitch regulator................woooohooo!
