I decided on Monday to put on my big girl pants and go buy the machine! It's my first big purchase EVER and I am financing it, which is scary and exciting. But it's mine! I went with the Pfaff Essentials 1.0, the middle model in the line. I've only gotten to use it once, because of school, but I'm liking it so far!
It's not really that pink in real life, more a dusty rose color.
I've decided though that I wish someone would make a sewing machine with JUST an integrated walking foot, the four most basic stitches I use all the time, a speed control slider and button, and an automatic threader. Those are the only features I want. Well, those and the ability to back stitch. But just think, if they made a moderately priced machine only with the features I use. I don't really need an arsenal of 200 stitches and the ability to embroider my name.
