It has been over 20 years since I last purchased a sewing machine.
I stumbled across a blog post a day or so ago that has put me into new machine fever. The comments and reviews that I can find on it (not many, actually) seem very favorable.
However...I'm still somewhat hesitant as it has an electronic display. Not a full out touch screen, just an LED display with the stitch selection but...
I'd really rather select my stitches with a dial. It's not gonna go out or get fried. It just seems more reliable.
But, maybe there's the rub? The manufacturers no longer want to make a machine that can be handed down to granddaughters?
Funny...I bought my New Home when my Kenmore was 12 years old, thinking it was time for a new machine. In 1992. Or maybe it was 1994. It was either the year before or the year after The Actor was born; sad that I can't remember which. Anyway, I really haven't found a machine that I'd even consider purchasing as a replacement. Until this week.
I just have to get over my fear of short-lived electronics.
But, hey, I'll still have the old machines as back up, right?
Maybe I'll see if there is one available to test run at the Expo....
