I am now back in the land of the sewing!
I was gifted a new sewing machine yesterday which makes me quite happy. My birthday will roll by in a few months and I will say thank you (again, considering I said it a hundred times yesterday!) to my husband's grandparents for their sweet surprise.
I have the Brother Model CE8080PRW. I have used this brand for quite a while. I find it easy to use, the manual is easy to interpret, the feet easily changed, the weight comfortable, and the stitch choices vast enough to cover every project I have dreamed up. I am a happy girl to have this machine on my table.
