My goodness, that's a grand tutorial to have on hand. Typically I just open it up and try to blow and gently dust out what I can, but I never knew how to oil n' things.

I think I'll go to a retailler this week, though I still don't know which brands to avoid. I really do want to at least narrow down to ones that haven't had major problems.

What did you stuff it with?

This is thoroughly adorable! I love it, great work. Do you have a close up of the pattern of the fabric?

Thanks for the advice on the birdsnesting. I'll take your advice on ye-ol' clunker and look at the tension again. I think it does need repair though. I've never had it professionally cleaned. So I am willing to bet it needs some internal cpr. (I was a kid, I didn't know better!)

I like the idea of going and trying out machines. I think I know a store that has lots of brands out on display to try. I have a vague memory from years ago, but I can always check the yellow pages. I am looking to keep my grand total under 1000. And even then I'll only pay that end of the scale if it makes me do back flips. I'm probably looking to spend around 700/800-ish.

When I go into stores to look at and try out machines, would anyone recommend a particular brand to look at or a certain model they love?

Hello all!

I am looking for reccommendations on a good computerized sewing machine, for around 500 dollars. I'm an intermediate sewer. I don't do quilting, but I may try one in the future. I'm not brand-loyal. I was taught as a kid on computerized husquervarnas, and I myself had the husquervarna viking (husky 145) in my home. Hated it. Couldn't go three stitches without birdsnesting whatever made.

Right now I'm using a walmart singer (So I can keep exchanging it instead of keeping it and having to sell it later. I'm sneaky I know) until I know which machine I want.

I loved the push button-ness of the ones I had in my childhood sewing classes. I loved having fonts and pretty stitches I could program it to do, and I looooooved how organized it was. They were top shelf as I recall.



So, what I'm looking for is
  -A computerized machine.
  -I'll take into consideration any brand.
  -The type of sewing I do is mostly craft and clothing.

Reccommend away!

It's totally cute! I like it. Class skills there too, making it up.  Smiley

Well I like it! I think it's very pretty. I've been into mesh patterns lately.
