After months now of saving my money for a new sewing machine, I received that call from the husband that everyone looks forward to. Last night my husband tells me, I want to buy you a new machine. "WOW, REALLY". He wasn't kidding. After listening to countless curse words, and vocal frustration, he wanted to replace my dreadful headache with a shiney new love.
So Sophia and I went out today looking for a new machine. Now I am still saving for that big beautiful machine later, but for now I need a workhorse. Something I can use for four or more hours a day, cutting through layers and layers of fabric, and taking my abuse. I walk into the dealer today and tell her how much sewing I do, how often I do it, and what I will be sewing. She directs me to the Emerald 116. A basic Viking model, and what she called, "The Workhorse". Perfect that is just what I needed. I looked at the model above it, and a few above that, but came right back to this beautiful machine that would end all my misery.
I did not buy it yet, I wanted to go online and read some reviews, check prices yadda yadda. You know. This lady is paying the taxes for me, Throwing in a FREE extension table, as well as price match. Of course I am sure I will not find that kind of a deal anywhere. I am so exited, I will post pictures when we go get it.
What kind of machine is your "workhorse"?
