    It is a Kenmore He knows I like them, It is not the most expensive. Didn't want one of those. A computer one so I will have to watch my magnets. The older heaver one still haveing the dogfeed problem. Kinda know what it is. It happens when I use the reverse. So My old baby goes in the shop and my new baby I get to play with. The model is 385.19110. I am so happy I was dreading putting the old baby in the shop and having nothing put the treadle which needs work also.

    How sweet that he realized that you needed a new machine so the other one could go get fixed.

    Your model has very good reviews on pattern review. One lady just bought her husband one, so now they have two. Enjoy your new 'baby'.

    My Dh bought me a Kenmore back in the early 80's after we got married. I made ALOT of baby clothes for my son. Pulled it out the other day, cleaned it up a bit and my son used it to make his girl a pillow. It still runs like a dream and decided to keep it out
    CONGRATS on your new one. I'd love to see a picture.

    Your hubby knows what is good! I walked into a thrift store just before Christmas because you'll never know what you'll find, and there was an older but well taken care of Kenmore sewing machine. I snatched it up because I know people who love to sew for Project Linus and do not have a machine. A friend uses my extra sewing machine and sews up a storm for Project Linus.The Kenmore sews beautifully and today I'll get a walking foot for it, (it came with the quarter inch foot), extra needles, oil ,etc. and she can continue to sew up a storm for kids! Those machines are workhorses! Congrats on yours!

    What do the magnets do? I want to get me a computerized machine also.....these tips are good to know even if they don't affect the machine or not it's good to know.
    I know if your cell phone sits next to your computer or you use it close to it your pc can crash.....doesn't happen every time but it can. Isn't the tech world wonderful.....LOL

    My first machine was a Singer - had it for 32 years, bought the Janome DC3050 in 11/07(which are now not going to be made anymore)and just purchased the Janome 4900 Memory Craft. It is great when we can actually USE the gifts we receive. Congratulations, and can't wait to see what you make!

    Not excatly sure about magnets, but I think they can erase or cause serious damage to computer machines

    Not real sure about magnets, but I think they can erase or cause serious damage to computer machines.
    Just to be safe don't lay a magnet on the machine.
    I have a magnet to pick up dropped pins that I keep
    in a cup along with marking pens and pencils.
