After this realization I made a decision. I have been researching new sewing machines but was put off by the high price but now...after much deliberation and research and soul searching - I've decided to buy a very, very nice new sewing machine - a Pfaff Quilter 2048. This is more than I have ever spent on anything for myself, but I am tired of fighting with my little Euro Shark. I love to sew, and want nice, reliable equipment to use.
Anyone else have a Pfaff? Any advice? (on sewing, life, equipment, buying something good for yourself etc)
