My New Sewing Machine
I don't like to be oversold. If what I need works, I stick with it. I was using this portable black and white TV (happily!) until TV went digital and so any color TV is awesome. (And, I must say, I Love Lucy looked just as good on the old retro set.) However, lately my sewing skills were surpassing my sewing machine's capabilities.
The ladies at Joanne's were very nice when I had to turn down the $279 Viking Machine in favor of a more reasonably sale priced Singer Curvy.
I have no doubt that the Vikings are better and a terrific value etc... but the Curvy has attachments like a ruffle foot and a walking foot (sold separately) and will be a major step up for me anyway.
The old TV set was recently dropped off at Goodwill for recycling and the sewing machine might go to school for craft club.
It's a new day for this stick in the mud!
