I have a Destiny with the upgrade (which makes it a Destiny 2). I absolutely love this machine. You are going to be amazed and what it does. I have been creating vinyl notebook covers recently. Who would have thunk it? Enjoy your new baby. And...Happy Birthday!

Congratulations! Are you going to put that into your Machine Shed. From the pictures I've seen of that, there isn't much room in there anymore. Maybe you need to add on!

Here is a picture - I've gotten as far as doing a few inches of straight stitching.

The upgrade was included in the price, though the dealer has to order it in for me.

This is such a "culture shock" for me since the last time I bought a brand new sewing machine to be my "main" machine was 1980. I am "technology challenged". I've had the same smart phone for 5 years and have not figured it out (if I need to do something different, I call my son and ask him) I don't know how to use our TV (DH has to) and I've never even figured out the new dishwasher.

I've watched a few videos, and want to take out my "crazy quilt" that I've not worked on in about 8 months and play with decorative stitches.

Wow, that is one way to perk up your spirits, for sure. I remember 10 years ago, my DH & I were going to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary & he (secretly) wanted to get me a 1 carat diamond ring. Our daughter told him "I don't think Mom would want a ring". When he finally spilled the beans, I said the same thing but added "I would like
a top of the line sewing/embroidery machine" & that's what I got. My friends thought I was nuts but that's what made me happy & that's all that matters. Good luck with your new machine.

I've enjoyed your posts for a long time and I always like to see a machine used, whether it's a vintage look-at-and-wonder why on earth? or a new top-of the line. Your husband must be a smart man (he married you!) and that's one Destiny that will give you sewing pleasure for many years to come.

I agree, I love old machines, but for making things I much prefer a good quality new one. There is also no comparison between a new plastic Walmart machine and a new Bernina, Janome, or Viking.

" I think vintage machines are way better than most lower end new machines. I have my collection for historical reasons, but love the newer features my machine has for actual sewing."
