or, i should say, new to my home sewing machine. This will be a christmas present for Katie (now 17)....
with college looming next fall, the idea of spending enough money to
get her a decent sewing machine was not happening...so i hunkered down
and watched ebay. Last week i "won" the acution-a pfaff hobby 1016.
it's a very basic machine...straight stitch, zig zag and buttonhole.
It arrived this morning...
so nothing left to do but plug her in and take her for a spin!
. The machine came packaged really well for shipping...but also
in its original box, as well as all the original paperwork minus the
reciept and all the things that the manual said it should come with.
It appears to have been used VERY little. and overall, it sews rather
nicely! i haven't tried the buttonhole yet...but i think Katie will
be excited and pleased. she likes sewing a little bit, and this way
she has her own. she has told me that "it really is a stress relief
now, can anyone offer opinons/advice on this new to us machine? how
old might it be? (i;m not up on Pfaffs....).
Hope eveyone is having a great day!
