I just wanted to write a quick post to introduce you to my partner in crime, Pearl....
I've received so many emails from you asking for a sewing machine recommendation, and which machine I use, I thought I would address them all at once!
My mom bought me this machine from JoAnn's about 3 years ago, and as you can see, it's a fairly simple model. From what I see online, it hasn't gotten the best reviews, but mine happens to work quite nicely! I use it constantly, and it's held up remarkably well, despite the fact that I have not oiled in once. (Naughty!!)
The only complaint I have with it is that the automatic buttonhole maker doesn't seem to work on mine. I'm not sure if that's just my machine, or a model defect. (Or maybe a user defect??) :o)
So there it is-my machine! Unfortunately this is the only machine I've ever owned, so I can't be much help in recommending others, but I would like to put a little plug in for Husqvarna, if you can afford one. My mom has had hers since the '70's it's what I learned on. Their machine's are (were?) definitely built to last! Plus, it's just fun to say "Husqvarna", you know?
Have a great Wednesday!
