Happy face

Hi Jenna,

I am not familiar with Singer machines, but I got a kick out of reading that you are wanting to replace your Kenmore. My Kenmore is 30 years old (high school graduation gift) and is still going strong. It is so old, that it actually is called a "Lady Kenmore" (how sexist is that?!!). I'm not planning on replacing it until someone comes up with a combo traditional sewing machine/serger!

I am new to quilting, but I have machine-pieced a lovely quilt and am now planning on quilting it. It might take me forever, but I'm thinking of hand-quilting it -- since I'm nervous about my old "Lady Kenmore" not providing nice-enough results. Does the Singer machine you are interested in do an automatic stippling stitch? Have you ever quilted free-hand on a sewing machine -- or do you always do the quilting part by hand?

Good luck on your Singer search!
