My friend, Sara, and her husband, Ken, are expecting their first child in August. They are two of our closest friends down here and we are so EXCITED for their daughter (Mia Alexandra) to arrive.
Yesterday I decided I wanted to sew something for the baby. My mom got me a sewing machine a few years ago as a Christmas present. It worked well for about 1-2 years, but within in the last year it hasn't worked well at all. The piece that holds the bobbin keeps popping out. It's a real pain to put it back in place, and once it is in place it only stays in place for a few stitches. I might try to bring it into a sewing machine repair place, but at the same time, I don't want to pay someone 50$ to fix the machine when I can buy a decent new one for $125.
I found a nicer Brother machine at overstock.com for $125. It's computerized and does some little embroidery. It's actually the machine they use on the show "Project Runway." Not that that is a selling point, but it might mean it holds up well.
I guess I have a decision to make -- which I hate doing. I'm so bad at making decisions. (Even if it's what to order at Taco Bell).
I'll keep ya'll updated on how things go.
Here's the machine I'm looking at:
