Newbie wants to purchase new machine.
Hi. I’m a real Newbie to sewing….I’m taking a class which starts in 2 weeks and I am so psyched about it! I also have been looking online and in the fabric store for a machine that I can grow with. The Viking machines seem like a solid and reliable brand and one of the women at the store recommended the Platinum Plus. She couldn’t rave enough about the embroidery features and she said that I’d be using that in no time. Is that true? I thought it looked beautiful, but am I dreaming and looking too far ahead? Haven’t sewed since JHS about 35 years ago but I don’t want to fuss too much with a used machine either. My co-worker has a low-end Brother and by her talking about sewing, it sounds more like a chore for her than anything else. I feel that this will be a good hobby for me and will bring out my “creative” side. I appreciate all replies and opinions. Thanks;-) Sue
