I've only had my previous sewing machine for a year (I bought it last year on Black Friday), but, when I purchased it I bought the most basic $50 machine.... I hadn't sewn anything in years
(more, like decades). And, I wasn't sure I would actually use it - BUT, I have.
It was hard trying to decide what would be the right machine for me. I mean, I didn't want to purchase another machine that I would outgrow in a year or so, but I also didn't want to make a major purchase.
Really, I thought I made a decision - but, Wal-mart announced a last minute roll back. I didn't see the update until late Wednesday night, so I knew - I would be headed out to the stores first thing on Black Friday morning.
I ended up with a Brother CE8080PRW (the pictures above are from Brother's website).
And, I got it for $134.97! 80 built in stitches --> with a total of 8 different automatic button holes. OMG! Automatic button holes!
All day, I've been planning to get home, so that I could start playing with my new machine.... But, I'm way, way too tired. Of course, between trying to get the 50% off thread from Fabric.com at 1 this morning (and, they had already sold out of the white Gutterman), and getting to Wal-mart at 6:45, then going to work.... I'm just too tired. Really, what was I thinking?
Once, I get it set up - I'll be sure to post more pictures!
P.S. I haven't given him a name yet, but I'm sure I will! Right now, he's MMII (Magic Maker #2)!
