This is Sew Right (… yes, right next to paradise…lol)
This is the bus stop back to Brooklyn...
This is me…
This is the big ticket item I was supposed to search for a better deal for online.... Rrrrright.
Alas, I do feel like I made a very good choice overall...The Emerald 183 by Husqvarna Viking... I went with a very good brand... I got everything I needed plus most of what I wanted. Yes, I spent on the higher (highest) end of my price range. But, I feel I walked away with a high quality machine from a high quality machine making company.
I mean, it WAS still about 150-200 less than the PRLE.... And that’s exactly what I'll keep telling myself... Over and over and over again... I mean... I just spent my iPhone money....:(
But, the drama over whether our not it was an impulse buy, and/or the cost of said buy aside, I think I'm in love. It’s big. It’s sleek. And it’s fast(er than the other machines I looked at... The Magnolia 7330 by Janome and the Quilter's Choice by Babylock.)
Another thing I keep telling myself is that I am getting quality care and service at a 'local' dealer (…Okay, so Union Turnpike and 223rd St. in Queens isn't exactly 'local' to Forte Green, Brooklyn, but I think it would be worth any trips I had to make.) I think this would not have been the case with an online purchase. I was already told I could come back and take a class on the machine anytime or if I had any questions all I had to do was call...
That kind of thing is big for me.
Today, Holla = Chaching!
