    Six years ago I put my Viking 415 on lay away fro a birthday present for myself be cause no one would get me one that I wanted. I had tow months befor it. And I told every one all I wanted was money for it but my husban. One day he saw the lay away slip and asked about it. I told him. He thought I was buying a chep machine (because he bought me a machine that never worked.). well we went out had dinner then we stop at the shop that I had my lay away. He said he had some qustions to ask because I did not know how to buy. The next thing I kwen he took out my lay away slip and payed it off;and I still got other presents for my birthday. But the story continues. Three years after I put a serger on lay away nerer haveing one I thought it is about time I did.There was one on sail a viking not top of the line ( almost bottom so I would not be so afraid of it ). Well I gave the money to my DH to pay off the lay away and get my machine. But what he came home with was not my machine.I was so speachless. He came home with the top of the line serger the 3,000 not the 300. What a nice guy. Istill have not used it I'm afraid. I just need to sit myself down with my next quilt and use it.

    You have a keeper, there!

    I'd love to see the day my DH brought a long arm home.. I have no where to put one, but it is still nice to dream!

    I echo your dream. But you could add to that a room big enough to hold it. While we are dreaming, go full throttle! I just don't have enough room either.

    But Quilt4U, keep this man! Go to the recipe section and find an awesome dinner for him!

    Understand the afraid part. A friend of mine keeps trying to talk me into a serger.

    That was a wonderful and thoughtful surprize. He is a good guy.

    quilt4u, I know what you mean :!: My h is the same way and he is
    checking where every penny goes. He too, thinks I have too much but
    one day I have my own space and a new sewing machine to boost.

    You are a lucky wife.
    Don't be afraid of your serger. If you have the top of the line one it should be easy to use. Your dealer probably gives free classes. I have even done quilting with mine. Almost all commercial clothing construction is done with a serger. I recently upgraded mine which I have had since the late 80's . I broke one of the loopers. It was repairable but the technology has improved since I purchased that one. They gave me a generous trade in and this one is easier to thread. I worked for a year for a Bernina dealer who made ends meet by doing custom dressmaking and alterations. I used a serger almost everyday in her shop. I use mine at home a lot. You can even make lace with the machine.

    Enjoy
