    What a great story. Thanks very much for sharing it! You get what you give. In your case you got a great machine for a great price because of your generosity. You were, after all, only in the waiting room with time on your hands because you took someone else tot he doctor. So enjoy and congratulations.

    Some things are just meant to be, and it seems that it was meant for you to have this particular machine! I know you will love it and get much use from it. I have a 10001 that I have certainly gotten my money's worth out of. It's probably 8 years old and I love it. I use my vintage machines for quilting and that one for embroidery. Enjoy your new baby and I am so happy for you!

    Congrats to you. I may be able to understand why she filed for divorce though! What a dirty trick on his part....unless it was all his $$ that paid for it.

    You know it was just meant to be. With all the good work you do God knows you needed this machine to make it easier for you to do the wonderful things that touch others lives in the best kind of way. Teaching, sharing, giving freely of yourself. Enjoy your new machine.

    That is awesome. Machine embroidery is a major addiction for me. I dearly love it. I incorperated it into my quilting as well. I have more patterns than I will ever stitch but still love to collect as quilting patterns. You can add so much to your charity quilts just by adding a little embroidery to them. Good luck & so happy for you.

    sad about the divorce, sounds like he was trying which was why the new machine for the wife. Blessing for you and those you minister to though. Hope you get years of pleasure out of the new machine and Blessings on your husband for supporting your loves.
