hello new friendTags : sewing .
So my older machine, a Kenmore, was having a few issues recently. Chugging along as well as she could but not as happily as she once was. She's been making some weird noises lately which I'm not to sure if it's due to her age (almost over 10) or due to the fact she's fallen out of her case on the floor 3x. Poor baby, I know. The locks on the case has gave loose each time and she's taken a few beatings (all in which resulted in my crying poor machine). Either way I called about repairs on the old girl and every place I called they gave me the same quote of 90 bucks, eck!!! After being shocked by the price and adding up things in my head, we decided it was probably time to seek a newer machine. Something a bit updated from my basic model but nothing to over the top, because I still wanted the easy to use option, none of this programming and leave it alone to stitch nonsense. Well after hunting about I found this beauty, the Singer 5500 Fashion Mate and yes she's a bit digital. She's everything I needed plus a little more and now I'm back in business for sewing. Besides the basic stiches she does a few decorative ones... ok maybe a few more than a few but I'm oh so happy with her. So who else out there sews? I know there's a few of you. What sewing machine is your baby?
