What a Deal


Have you ever put off going to the quilt shop because you think you're going to spend more than you should on something you don't need? Well, that's how I felt yesterday.

But, I ran out of supplies for a secret project I'm doing for 2 sisters that read my blog so I can't tell you what I ran out of.....so, around 5:00 hubby started asking what's for dinner and the girls said chinese. I took that opportunity to tell him I was running to the quilt shop for the supplies and I'd pick the chinese up on my way back....which only gave me about 20 minutes to shop. PERFECT!!! I found what I needed and when I went up to check out I remembered reading the newsletter in the morning and Debbie mentioned having some new and used machines for sale in the classroom....so I went in and peeked. This bad boy was sitting there with a sale tag that said $129.00....could that really be the price? I went out to ask Debbie and she immediately walked back with me and confirmed the price. Well, as you can tell, it's not at Debbie's anymore, it's at my house :) I tried explaining to hubby that I'm always lost when I take my Bernina Artista in to the spa and have nothing to sew with, which didn't fly with him because he knew I had an Elna, a 1924 Singer Featherweight and also the machine on my Grace Frame....but for the price he said I got a good deal and immediately set er up for me.....
I think I'll try it out today before we leave to take Sarah back to Penn St at 5.....
Hope everyone had a great holiday and enjoy the weekend...

Peggy, are you spoiled!!! What a great hubby to let you come home with a new sewing machine...and he helped you set it up????!!!!! This will be a great "take along" machine instead of taking your Artista out of the house!! Congrats!

Peggy, congratulations on a nice deal! But I must ask, you take a sewing machine to a "spa"? I must be missing something here. All I can picture is swimming, a hot tub, and perhaps a sauna -- please fill in the blanks.

Whoa, what a good deal! It is so nice to have a spare machine. Lucky you!

When garage selling in Texas, I would run across a great deal on a machine and as always it would end up in my home.....finally, I would just have to tell myself no.....
