Hey, everyone!  This is where we'll eventually house our list of machine reviews.  Between now and then, though, we need for you crafty peeps to write some for us!  Here's a suggested starting point for your review.  Use as much or as little as you like, but please at the very least include the brand and model of your machine.  Thanks!  I can't wait to see what you all post!

Start a NEW TOPIC with your sewing machine brand and model as the title, please, to help stay organized.  I'll add links to this page as people post!

Brand:

Model:

Year:

Cost:

How long have you had the machine?

Is it a basic sewing machine, serger, or embroidery machine?

What are your favorite features?

What are some of the unique features it has?

How well does it run?

Has it ever broken or needed maintenance you couldn't do yourself?

What are your least favorite features?

Would you recommend this machine to a friend?

Just posted one for my oldest machine...

It was manufactured from 1941-1953 and is still in it's original cabinet.
