I rarely come in here, but last night I looked at all the sewing machine pictures and read a bunch of threads.  I came in here because my Kenmore is acting up and I still can't find a foot that lets me sew anything but a straight stitch.

So what do I do?  Start looking at craigslist.  And what do I find?

She is so cute.  $15.  37 miles away  *swoon*

Yet it solves none of my problems...

And I know I am totally in the wrong place to be talked out of it <grin>

It is adorable! I totally can relate. Since coming here, I've picked up 4 machines. My only saving grace is that they were all cheap finds. I'm giving one away to justify buying the next  Undecided

I was inspired to get out my serger and finally figure out how to thread the thing! I love reading about everyone's machines!

Ohhhhh  preeeeety!!

No, you should not buy that machine! You should send me the Craig's List info! Cheesy

I recently passed up a 40's era Necchi. Dang it! the seller knew how collectible it was! Was asking $75... I can't hide that in the grocery budget.

My very first machine was a Necchi.  I HATED that machine.  I had it in for service so many times and it would always tangle the bobbin.  Some of it may have been user error, but I hated that thing with a passion.  I got it when I was 8 or 10, lugged it around after college, never really using it because no matter how much I spent on it, I couldn't get it to work right.  Finally, I gave up and donated it to Goodwill.  4 month later, I found my Kenmore at the same Goodwill.  Good sewing karma, I guess, because my Kenmore has been good to me, for the most part.

So anyway, I am picking up my new pink Atlas on Friday!!!!!  Unfortunately, my husband is off work this week, so I won't be able to sneak away on my day off and bring home before he notices.  So I need to come up with something believable, and that explains the fact I am driving to another state and the strange tolls on our EZpass statement.   Undecided

I have confirmed that I am picking up this beauty tomorrow  Grin  And there is a sewing machine repair shop with actual mechanics onsite about 4 miles from the pickup location, so I will swing by there afterward for an assessment.  The only places in my county that repair sewing machines just have a guy that picks them up once a week.

Consider how totally crappy my day at work was today, I need this

Yay! I bet the guy who picks up is connected to that shop you mentioned, ask about it, it might save you a trip for pick up Smiley
