Retail Therapy! Doing my part to help the economy!
So what do I do on Saturday....I go to the Sew Expo of course, I didn't win the contest with my embroidered purse entry, but I didn't really think I would win anyway. So I go to the Expo with a mission, to buy a new sewing machine. People that know me are thinking, she needs a new sewing machine like she needs a hole in the head, but I do need a new machine, my old regular sewing machine has been dying a slow death and I have been waiting for this weekend for a long, long time. So I hit every vendor's booth who are selling machine's, Viking, Bernina, Janome etc.... and I end up at the Babylock dealer's booth, and I seek out the owner who has dealt with me before so I am suprised that he doesn't duck and hide. I get him to sell me the demo at a great discount and I convince him to throw in a quilt table, quilting foot and pay for the tax as well, whoo hoo! I will pick it up later in the week! Here is a picture of it below. I love to wheel and deal and get what I want!
