The hunt is on for a new sewing machine!
Let’s not beat around the bush here – I need help. I need your help.
This morning I went to have a look around and… – sweet baby Moses, buying a new sewing machine is more difficult than buying a new house.
My trusty Singer was/is 11 years old, and seeing as it was a gift there was no way for me to influence the buy. Even if I could have, what the devil did I know about quilting and sewing back then?
Seeing as I can pick and choose this time round, I want a machine with all the bells and whistles on. The two that caught my eye today was a Janome 3160QDC, and a Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. (These caught my eye fleetingly as I turned tail and fled in horror after seeing the multitude of choices and realizing that I was out of my depth!)
How can you help? Easy – please tell me what machine you have (old or new), what you like about it, and what you would look for in a new machine. That sounds like work, right? Right. It is.
In return for your input and advice, I will give away a US$25 gift voucher to either amazon or a fabric shop to one lucky person. You choose between the two, and I choose the shop. (Why do I get to choose the shop? Because if you live in, oh say Australia, you may want a voucher for a shop closer to home. Same goes for amazon.)
One entry per person. The give-away ends at midnight (GMT) on Sunday 9 December, and I will announce the winner on Monday 10 December.
Till next time,
