Default Tough choice....

I've been saving for new livingroom furniture that my husband does not want. So I could give up on the furniture and spend my savings on a new quilting machine. What would you choose.

Depends on how bad my old furniture was. if your getting new because it is worn out and needs to be replaced I would go furniture because you need it, but if your just doing it because you want new furniture to have it be new I would do the machine

Hmmm, hard decision. I might put off making a decision and think really hard about it....but then again I might just go for the new machine. You will make the right decision.

No question for me - new quilting machine! I have the same situation right now; my husband doesn't care either way and we NEVER sit in our living room. I quilt every day, so I'm going for the quilting machine. Enjoy it!

I'm with Dolphyngirl - it would depend on how bad my furniture is. If it were me right now, I'd pick new furniture. I'm pretty happy with my current family of machines.

lol my only machine is one I bought 10+ years ago for about $100. My furniture is well used but not the worst I've seen. I cover it anyway because our dog sheds A LOT.

Unless the furniture makes you unhappy, go for the quilting machine.
