I'm dating myself here, but do you remember a good old song by Chuck Berry about turning in his broken-down raggedy Ford for a new Cadillac? I think the song was titled "No Money Down". That's how I feel about my new Brother sewing machine. I couldn't get a trade-in for my Kenmore, but I do now have a beautiful new Cadillac - a Brother Pacesetter 3700, on sale. It is gorgeous, so smooth and powerful. The threading and bobbin are a little different from what I'm used to, but as my father says "If all else fails follow directions", so I did, and made some cute little coasters. See the saga below:
THE BOX IT CAME IN
OUT OF THE BOX AND UNDER ITS COVER
THE GLORIOUS MACHINE REVEALED IN ALL ITS SHINING GLORY!!!
THE THREADING AND THE BOBBIN...HAD TO BE LEARNED AND MASTERED
CUTE LITTLE RED TOILE COASTERS...NEED TO MAKE MORE, THERE'S PLENTY OF FABRIC WHERE THEY CAME FROM
EVEN PUNKINHEAD IS ENJOYING THE NEW ADDITION!
All in all, the adventure was successful and the mission accomplished. I now feel I have a professional machine that won't give me trouble, and I can make more beautiful things to sell.
