I need help.
I mean, I need help in lots of ways, but let's just focus on one issue at a time shall we?
I sew everyday. I do it to stave off the insanity and to hold onto something that's just mine in a SAHM world of diapers, My Little Ponies, and fighting over one toy when we have a BAZILLION and WHY CAN'T WE JUST ALL GET ALONG?!?
Anyway, the point is that I sew a lot, and I love it. And I've really loved designing my own clothing for the kiddos.
But lately, I've had to stay away from anything with buttonholes because my machine is refusing to make them. And I realized that a sewing machine is just like any other machine, right? You work it hard, and eventually it's going to break down or not work as well or whatever. So I'm starting to think that a new machine will be my "big ticket item" on my Christmas list this year. So I could use your help. What machines to you lovely folks have? What do you love about them? What cool features could I really learn to dig?
Any feedback would be so very welcome!
(And do I even think about a machine that could embroider? That may put it way out of my price range...)
