    Don't ya just love that new machine smell? Just as good as a new car, and twice as fun! :D

    I understand what you mean by clunk...one of my favorite machines,Singer XL50, about 12-15 years old, went clunk the other day. I just got the bad news from the dealer today. :( The part is under $20, but the labor is about 4 hours worth. I'm looking at about $300 in repairs, but the machine is a workhorse. Dealer even said worth the repair...I trust this guy. :)

    Sometimes we just need a little "shot in the arm"--whether we "need it" or not. This time you did need it. I'm glad for you.

    It was "only" $300, but I'll tell you I bet it lasts a lot lot longer than the Singer Ingenuity I bought for the same price. I remembered that I bought the Singer in '05, it was a fun one but not made for lots of sewing and quilting. I worked that thing over! :cry:

    Thanks for all your good wishes and wonderful congrats on the new machine. I am loving it, I worked up the ends on 44 neck coolers for the troops today, (now each one gets 4 pockets and water crystals, then sew the other end) did a pillow for Roy's back, and made myself a thread catcher/pin cushion. I have to sandwich and pin those quilt tops next. I can't wait but with Roy feeling poorly I don't want to mis baste anything so I'll wait a day or two.

    Hugs,
    Sharon

    Whew !! How can you keep up? I'm tired just reading all you're doing. What are neck coolers? Have I missed something? Sounds like a good project.

    I love my Elna, a few months back I got a Elna 7300 pro quilting Queen machine and I absolutely love it. the same thing was happening to me. I was sewing a black and my brother sewing machine went "bang bang ,klunk,klunk" and just died.
    Our local dealer gave me a awesome price on my new machine so I could not resist.
    I have a Brother PE 700II embroidery machine also. I find I like having one machine for embroidery and while I have something embroidering I can be sewing on the other machine.. I am a multi-tasking person :)

    Congratulations on the new machine :)
