Long Arm Convention

Back on October 14th -- Sheri -- Deb and I went to the Portland Convention Center for the MQX West Show (MQX = Machine Quilters Expo) it was fun to drool over ( I mean look at) the quilts on display -- beautiful work. Someday I would like to take some Long Arm classes to learn a few more tricks to use on the Long arm. (some day)
Of coarse there were vendors selling all kinds of gadgets for the long arms. (some day)

One of the vendors was from the sewing machine center here in the Portland area called "Montavilla" so I walked over to take a look -- they had the Pfaff Expression 4.0 (when it came out the price was $3000.00) -- can I just tell you I have been drooling -- no oogling over this machine for quite some time. And saving my quilt money to buy one. (it always seemed that when I had enough, another expense came up that needed to be taken care of) so I just kept saving and watching.



I talked with the manager of "Montavilla" and said what kind of deal can you make and you need to use my "tiptronic 2030" as a trade.....



When it came right down to it they gave me a price I couldn't resist ;o} so I bought it (paid cash -- yea sewing money)



Do you want to see it? ....










It is a way cool machine -- I really like the button features and the hover on the pressure foot. I'm happy with my new Pfaff. Yea!




Hope you have a great day.

Congrats on your new purchase! After you had a chance to sew on her for awhile, would be interested in hearing your review of the machine.
