    New baby...sewing machine that is!

    I am so excited because I just brought home my new computerized Kenmore machine (#19110)! I have been waiting for it to go on sale and finally it was. Just had to pop on here because I knew you would all understand my excitement. No one at my house gets it..LOL!
    Bye now...gotta go play with it!

      I totally understand! After not having access to a machine for over 3 years, I felt so afraid I would never sew again. I received a new machine for Christmas , much to my shock and surprise! I have been so elated, joyful, and grateful. My soul sings with all the new creativity! It has filled a hole that was so deep and so sad! There is nothing like a new sewing machine and getting exactly what you wanted! I am so thrilled for you! How exciting! What will you sew first? Congrats! SuzyQue

        Thanks for sharing in my excitement pd and suzy! I played with the stitches of course, then I put the binding on the baby quilt I had just finished hand quilting. Not sure how old my other but it is at least 15 years old and would no longer sew in reverse. I can't believe how much smoother my new baby sews. Love the speed setting, auto threader, and all the stitches. I thought it came with a walking foot but my daughter wants to get me something quilt related for Mom's Day so I will hint at that!
        Wish I could stay home and play with it but sadly I have to work!

            I guess I would have to say my baby is broken in, too. ....but that sounds a little sad. I prefer to think that I am broken in to it, now that I have learned most of the ins and outs of a new machine. I guess at almost 5 months, the baby is really growing on me!! I have to agree that it is so much faster and easier to sew with a new machine. My old one was over 31 years old and so worn out. I guess that makes me ancient!!! SuzyQue

              CONGRATULATIONS!!! It is so exciting to bring home a new machine. Especially when it's a computerized model. You're going to have sooooo much fun. Let us know how you like the Kenmore. Have fun.

                Thanks, it was silly but I really did feel like a new mom driving my baby home. LOL...my bf is now hounding me to get rid of my old machine but she is like my old friend and I hate to throw her out! I think I will hide it in the storage area until we get into a larger place in September. I plan to claim a room as my sewing room so my old machine can "retire" to a special spot!
                You are right with the new machine running so much smoother and quieter!
                Suzy - 31 years is a long time for a sewing machine - did you sew on it alot? was it mostly quilting?

                  Yes, I sewed on it everyday for the first 17 years. I was a garment and home decor sewer. I sewed everything my children and I wore for all that time. Then I became a full time homeschool mom and no longer had time to sew daily. I still used the machine occasionally and for all the mending, but it sat with dust on it a lot. When I had time and energy to take up more sewing, the machine needed a little cleaning and adjusting. The store ruined the machine and it was never the same again. I put my hopes away for a few more years and this year got my new baby. That is why my soul sours once again!!! SuzyQue
                  PS-----I still have the original machine-------doesn't work, but can't part with it either.......in storage.

                    Everyday for 17 years?? Wow..that is alot of sewing! When my kids were babies I sewed all their clothes too. Sewing was my relaxation. I also stopped sewing for a number of years and last year I decided I needed something that was just "mine" again in my life and started quilting again. It has brought so much joy back into my life!

                          Put my baby in repair shop to day. Come tax time I'm want to buy a new one. I have a Brothers now, don't know if I should buy another Brothers or try a Singer instead. Any how will be giving my Grandaughter my old one so I don't mind repairing it now.

                              I have a brother that is a little workhorse but I also have a singer quilting machine and I love it. It was 399.00 and I got it on sale for 299.00 and I am really glad that I got it. Check one out at Joann's. That's where I got mine.
