    NO WAY! He does not go car shopping with me either. I strike a better deal than he does.

    This really has nothing to do with Quilting but I went shopping for Kitty Liter and came home with a brand new car. Go figure.

    Same here, love my Quattro. You are going to love this machine. Funny, when I read the headline I thought you did the car thing. Last year Hubby and I were looking for a car for me. Looking at Ford Explorers, came home with a Mercedes Crossover (cross between a SUV and a sports-y luxury car). Funny how we "read" things, my hubs and I being "car people" so I thought there was a real car here.
    Congratulation on the new toy, pedal to the metal!!

    Congrats When I went shopping for a new sewing table a few years ago, that is when I came home with my Janome 10001, and hubby was the instigator that day. Enjoy your new baby

    Congrats on your new machine. I know you will enjoy getting to know her. Monday I bought a new Pfaff Expression 4.0 and I'm thrilled too. Happy quilting.

    Congratulations on your new Ellisimo Gold! You will love it. I have had mine for a little over a year and I still have a lot to learn. It does so much! Enjoy!

    Funny, ISN'T IT ???
    Makes ya wonder how all of a sudden, they can back up and sweeten the deal. Or how one customer gets a better price than another ? ... it's all about negotiating !
