I love that yellow apron!

OGD gave me her old bobbin holder when she upgraded to the fancy frisbee one and I've been jealous ever since!  Wink

No news and I have a feeling I won't be hearing anything.

I started researching new machines last night and I don't even know where to begin.   Mine was a pretty basic Kenmore that my parents bought for me six or seven years ago when I was in college. I want to get something nicer, but not too terribly expensive.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a new machine? I'd like it to be able to do automatic button holes- a feature I just recently discovered existed.   Wink  Perhaps in the $200 range.  I also am going to see if anywhere local sells used machines.

sometimes you can find a good machine really cheap at yard sales or at the flea market/swap meet, or I see a lot of them on Craigs List.

Imafundork check Goodwill online for good used sewing machines.  Different Goodwill stores auction things and I have seen some really nice sewing machines on there.  You may get lucky and get a good machine for a low price.  If you do a little research you will have a better idea of what is a good deal.  Lots of people give away machines that have hardly ever been used.  Also some of the things Goodwill sells are new too.

This gallery is looking real nice I can't wait until my partner gets her package.  I think she should get it by monday.

Overstock.com has some good deals, too! http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=sewing%20machine&SearchType=Header I recently bought a new machine when they had Black Friday sales, but I was overwhelmed when trying to make a decision. I got a Singer Confidence 7467 at Joann, and it is awesome.

I love getting good deals on stuff, so I checked eBay, Amazon, and www.shopgoodwill.com. Smiley

Personal swaps... Would love to trade sewn stuff for some cool hand-carved stamps.

Thanks for the replies!  Last night, I was looking at Overstock.com and Craigslist, but I didn't realize that you could get things from Goodwill online.  I will definitely check that out!

I just printed postage and am heading out the PO now to mail my package to The Platypus Project.   Smiley

I love my Janome, there is something wrong with the button hole thingie though. It's the 4 step one, and it messes up on coming back up, so weird.

My next machine I think I want one meant for quilting, with a wider platform and a longer arm. Not a long arm machine, just the sewing machine for quilters. I was quilting a pretty small quilt last night and it was pretty frustrating.
