Sew Spoiled

Hmmmm, what do we have here??


Could it be?? YES, yes it is! A new sewing machine for me!


Meet my brand new Pfaff Ambition 1.0! This was my first time ever actually shopping for a sewing machine, and let's just say it was a bit of an overwhelming process. After a fair bit of shopping around, a trip to a nearby city (well, 1.5hrs...), and a very supportive husband (much to my surprise and delight), we agreed on this lovely machine. I had definitely been focusing on a lower price range and machines with less features than this, but we were both so impressed by the demo of this machine, and really, the price difference between it and a much lesser model was really very little, considering the countless extras that this machine offers in comparison.

The woman offered us a brand new in the box machine for the same price that they were selling their floor model, but rather than that Graham asked if for the sale price (rather than demo price) they could include a extension table and they said yes! So that's totally awesome. I can also have as many one-on-one lessons as I want, for free.

I've only had a very short time to get it set up and try it out, and so far it's amazing. I have a lot to learn and get used to, but I look forward to many many projects minus the frustration that my old machine gave me!

Oh well, now I've gone and done it... I'm coveting my neighbour's new sewing machine.
I'm pretty sure that's high on the 'thou shalt not' list ;o)
