I have been reading review after review as to what machine would best suit my needs and is within my price range and the one that keeps ticking all the boxes is the Brother NV-400.
I was lucky enough to get some $$$ for my birthday so now I don't feel too guilty about spending so much money on a machine just for me...hooray!
I'm off to get it today and I feel like a kid in a candy shop - I'm so excited.
Now what will I sew first? My sewing board on Pinterest is full of so many great ideas. Grace insists I sew something for her but I think I'll start with these cute little quilted coasters.
