I haven't had word back about my sewing machine yet, he was hopeful it wasn't much when dh dropped it off. He had a quick look at it; and as he said it's been a good one. Dh asked what the equivalent was now and he said this one:
You can read more about it here. It has all the bells and whistles and then some. I use my sewing machine a lot, and would get a lot of use out of it, but it's a lot of money, $2,500.00 CDN.
There are pro's and con's to this, with there being more pro's to con's at this point!!
If we bought it now before dh retires while we have the "extra" money, it would hopefully last the rest of my days. I am familiar with this brand of sewing machine and like the service the store provides where I would buy if from. It has everything I need in a sewing machine and more.
On the down side is the price, that's an awful lot of money. The store is an hour and 15 minutes from where we live now, if we move further away, I would have to find a new service centre and there are not that many around.
When I pick up my sewing machine I will have a look at this one in the store. I do have to say though I am tempted!!
