So about a week ago, my little Singer of a sewing machine took a downfall on me and the repair did not warrant the cost of the machine originally. Ugh! I was going to have to look into a new machine and/or rent one until I could… I have too many deadlines and things to finish!
|Yes.. I post a picture of me attempting to look frustrated.|
So… I was talking to my sister about it and she ended up surprising me/informing me that her and my mother went in for my official 30th Birthday present (December) of getting me a sewing machine. I was ecstatic! (Talk about perfect timing)
It arrived last night! At this moment, I want to do nothing but try out every little thing on this machine. I did end up doing some sewing last night, and so far so good.
The monogramming is simple and 1/4” in height. Some have complained about this, yet for me it is perfect for any simple personalizing for monograms or even labels. If you wanted to do serious monogramming, I would hope that others would be aware you would then need to spend some extra dollars?
It has PLENTY of stitches for me to utilize and when I am sewing, the motor really gives off a punch by being able to take the fabric with ease. I enjoy the drop-in bobbin (first for me) and it works well so far. I am hoping to not run into any issues that some reviewers have stated… and if so, my sister has reminded me I can gladly take it back and upgrade to something else. To be honest, I am more thankful of the thought of her and my mom getting me a machine that was an upgrade from what I had, and well,… the thought period. I don’t believe I will have any issues that can’t be dealt with! I truly am a graceful soul and appreciate the effort(s) from others than the actual items. The items seem to be the bonus of the others hard work and for that, I will always be grateful.
|Mrs. B, all ready to sew her heart out for me|
This is no Tin Lizzie, Janome, Bernina or any of the other “fancy” high priced ones out there; but it mine and does enough for me, I have no doubt it will get the job done. One day I will have the bigger, fancier machines… until then, it will be me and Mrs. B. Not sure why I came up with Mrs. B, but when I was thinking of a name, it was the first thing that came to mind and it has stuck. It seems fitting though as it is a Brother machine and you can utilize “B” for just about any other ‘cool’ name. ;o)
