Hello I have just de lurked to say how much I love this thread. I've been reading it for the last couple of days and yesterday went a bit bonkers, plundered my savings and bought a Jamone from JL. I did do lots of research which was part of the fun and it was within budget at £169 but has lots of the things everyone says are important. I'm now scared of it a bit!!!!!! I have not sewed since 1979 when I was in my first year of secondary school and was legendary for my ability to sew for 30 seconds and unpick for the rest of the lesson. However, I did produce a wearable school blouse which was too small by the time I finished it.
Apart from the initial cost of the machine, which I need to give a name to, I am on a budget for patterns etc. Do you have any ideas for cost effective places to get thread, scissors, patterns, material etc as this is a brave new world for me!
Thank you for this thread. It's one of the loveliest on MAE. x
