I took my Elna to get serviced today and came home with a new machine. It's all Deb's fault. If she hadn't just bought a new machine when hers crashed I would have never thought about it. It was even on sale!
I haven't owned a Brother before but Deb and Mom have had good luck with them so that's what I got. It's got a knee lift, a thread cutter, and it has an extension table....I can get an insert made so it will fit my sewing table but it sits down with just a little gap in the back so I'll see how this works for now.
They're going to fix the Elna too....I'd feel bad about having 4 machines (counting the Gammill) but I know many of you have even more than that!
