I just found this great site on the web called The Sewing Studio/ Fashion Force ( I joined). But, since we were talking about sewing machines, I thought this would be helpful. The creator of this site, Denise, has some great info on how to choose a sewing machine to purchase. Take a look at this video, then visit the site

I use the Kenmore Sewing machine because it's simple and less complicated, My mom bought it for me as a gift, she got it when it was on sale.

After yet another repair looming on the Viking Designer 1, I purchased a Bernina 750QE.  The built in walking foot (even feed foot) is fabulous.  I made patio chair box cushions for a friend and that foot made that heavy duty fabric flow like "butta".  Very satisfied so far.  I did not buy the embroidery unit as I still have the Designer 1, and I'm just not into embroidery so much.  I called it my birthday present to myself.

I bought a Husqvarna/Viking Topaz 20 one year ago and love to sew with it.  The embroidery is beautiful, it's just too bad that the embroidery software for new designs is so very expensive. Does anyone know of VP3 designs that are reasonably priced?

I also have a 1990 Singer Heavy Duty machine that has been a reliable workhorse for me when it comes to jeans, upholstery, etc.

I did get a new sewing machine for Christmas. A Singer Quantum 9660. I absolutely love it. It's so quiet!!! lol you get used to the noise of your old machine and then you sew on a new one - wow! Now, to be truthful, I was only able to get this because Sewing Machine Plus had it on sale for next to nothing and I gave up any other Christmas present I was to receive from my husband :) and threw in some money my mom sent. But I am thrilled with it so far - anyone else have this machine?

@ Lisa B~ I would love to see pictures of this machine, it sounds wonderful!

I have a Singer Slant-O-Matic 500 which I inherited when my grandmother passed and I love it!  She bought it new in 1961, and cared for every single part/accessory that came with it.  It's like a new machine - has all of the original parts and accessories, manual, and a buttonholer - still in its original box.  I am so grateful to have this wonderful machine.

@ Serenity~ I know how you feel about your KiKi, LOL! My mother had a kenmore that she used when I was very young. We called her old faithful. I am now 43 years old and that machine is still floating between our families.

My Machine is a Kenmore Ultrastitch. I got it for my 8th grade graduation in 1984. Yeah I said 1984! It is the only machine I have ever owned and it works BEAUTIFULLY!!!! I have sown on other people's machines but I prefer my KiKi. And I don't let ANYONE touch her!

I have several machines, but the ones that get the most is the kenmore computerized sewing machine and kenmore serger. I recently started using my janome coverstitch after deciding not to trade it for another serger.
