Way back in January mom suggested a sewing machine for Nashville as a birthday present.
I was still in my going from working at home to working and commuting stinks funk so I didn't pursue it, since I knew my sewing set up in Nashville would never be close to the great craftroom of decades of collecting my mom and I shared at home.
Lately I've been itching to be crafty, and being short it sorta stinks to not be able to hem my own jeans. (Lord knows I'll never be able to remember to go to a tailor, so I've been waiting on trips home so mom can hem them, she's does it best anyway!)
Well I was at Walmart buying everything but the two things I went there for, cause that's how Walmart works does it not? haha
Then I saw they had a clearance sewing machine, quite the rarity. So I snapped a pic and researched it once I got home.
So I went back and got it.
I was super scared when I pulled it down and saw no less than 3 layers of tape. Then questioned myself, am I REALLY going to buy an open box from Walmart? (Funny side note, A's folks bought an open box tv from walmart, yeah they got it home and it had a bullet hole in it...)
I went with it, worst case scenario I'll return it tomorrow.
So I opened it up and tried not to get my hopes up too much.
I only did a little bit of playing around, but I'm very impressed with the machine so far and what it came with. It seems pretty on par with my Mom's really nice Kenmore 150 I learned on.
I've only got a few sewing blogs I read, Sew Much Ado and My Name is Stefanie and I'm a Craftaholic, who do you read for sewing inspiration??
