The other day while I was at Salvation Army I found a sewing machine. It had an as-is sticker on it but it was under 13 dollars. my mom and I tried it out in the outlets provided and it looks like it would work. So we gave it a shot and brought it home. Once I got home with a new foot and some to read it worked perfectly! I have a lot to learn but I'm looking forward to trying it out with a book that my mom got me on simple quilting projects. Wish me luck!
