Buying a machine

Often when my wife and I are teaching a class, we find that people have bought a new machine without knowing if it is suitable for the purpose for which it was purchased. Whew!! Long sentence. A good idea when shopping is to take with you some fabrics and tasks that you will be expecting your new machine to cope with. Then use the machine in the shop yourself ( of course, under the supervision of the salesperson, so they can help). Put it through it's paces.  Make sure it does the job that you want  it to do. You don't want to find out when you get it home, that it isn't what you expected. I've seen more than a few long faces in a class and I feel for those people. In future posts, I'll give a few hints on things to look for. Bernie
