I sent my dear old friend off to a Spa Day. She had been cranky and sputtering. Well the diagnosis wasn't good. Her motor was on it's last cycle of life and none to be found or parts to try a re-build. So the dear girl was laid to rest and designated as a 'donor' parts machine. She hopefully will live on thru other machines. I will miss you dear friend.
I had been scouring the inter-net, reading reviews, compairing and pricing. Well, I made a decision who best to fill the empty shoes.
She's metal bodied, simple (no bells & whistles), workhorse, and the most similar to my old gal. Since I will be on a non-sewing few days of activities, it will fit the gap of waiting for this to arrive,
I love my new (almost a year old!) Juki, but she is no piecer of tiny bits. She fills her duties of specialty stitches, button holes, monograms, and FMQ. I need that workhorse who loves pedal to the metal, use up those cones of thread, piece up those tubs of scraps, stitch with me into the night machine. And she better be ready cuz I will be so in the mood by the time she arrives!!!
