My new sewing machine ;)
I boogied out to Belgrade at lunch on Monday and picked up my new Necchi sewing machine after my trusty Singer took a nosedive on Sunday. It took me a little bit to get used to it, but it works like a dream! This baby sews through TEN layers of denim!! This machine has all the bells and whistles on it. I really like the double stitch feature and all of the decorative stitching patterns. It's super heavy duty metal instead of a plastic casing, this baby is made to last. I picked this machine out in August when I picked my Singer up from getting serviced. I got to sit down and play with several machines and this was the one that I felt would work the best for me. The shop owner had told me I was a lucky girl because the machine was on sale for $329 and I could even put it on layaway to fit my budget needs. That was all I needed to hear, where do I sign!! I was impressed that I could get such a good quality machine for that price. Funny thing is I didn't even do any research on this machine when I got home and other than making monthly payments on it, I really kinda put it out of my mind for a while.
Fast forward to this morning when I was trying to find a picture of it to post here, I just about dropped out of my chair when I found out the suggested MSRP..... $799..... I am a liitle in shock that I got a brand new, out of the box machine for less than half of MSRP!! I almost feel guilty! But seriously, the machine is amazing and I whipped through two more bags on Monday night and got four more done Tuesday night and two more on Wednesday night! I took last night off from sewing... I could barely keep my eyes open :( I am fast approaching my new revised goal of 60 booty bags by show time in a little over two weeks. I have almost every minute of my days and nights scheduled to be able to hit my goal. No goofing off for me!
Have a great day everyone ;)
