But it really is a fabulous thing & came with oodles of extras -
|Hard cover to keep it safe & clean in my dusty house!|
|Extension table for quilting|
|Usual bits & pieces for making it work & a scary embroidery thing|
|Mike stumped up a bit extra for feet for quilting|
|Bonus feet in the box|
|A set of scissors|
|Last but by no means least 50 reels of thread!|
I've needed to upgrade to a better sewing machine for ages & had started looking for one a couple of weeks back. I knew the sort I wanted - for dressmaking, quilting that sort of thing so I've been doing quite a bit of research into the best one for me & one that would last too.
My mum overheard a conversation that Mike I were having about going to Sewing Machine Direct which isn't too far away from us. I've learnt my lesson about buying expensive items with out looking at them first & not speaking to an experienced person. To cut a long story short my mum was rather insistent about buying me the machine as she wanted to buy me something nice for sorting out my dads estate for her after his death. To be honest I wasn't too keen on the idea but after spending a couple of days thinking about it & dealing with a petulant mother I gave in. I couldn't get out of work so Mike went down to the shop with three models in mind & asked for advice. And this was the best out of the bunch it's exclusive to the shop we bought it from & Mike was really impressed with the service he felt he received there, also Wendy the lady he spoke to passed her contact details on a business card in case I had any trouble with it & I can pop into the shop so it was sold! Well really it was ordered that afternoon & delivered to my mums the next day!
So there you go my new sewing beast, I've noticed a trend for people naming their sewing machines. Can you see the tortoise & the hare on the right hand corner - I'm thinking of calling it Aesop!
Enjoy your day all, I shouldn't be blogging I should be tackling the mountain of washing that needs putting away! x
