I'm getting a present! A big lovely present!!! My husband let it spill that he's getting me a Mother's Day / Graduation gift and before he buys it, because he has no idea if he's getting the right one, he wanted to ask me what I thought. I was so neglected on Mother's Day last year, didn't even get a card so this sounds pretty good already! Sure! Whatcha thinking?!!! [big silly grin]
Hubby: You want a serger?
Me: (totally overcome with excitement, can barely breathe!) Really! That's so great! (heart pounding!) I've wanted one for a long time! (10 or 12 yrs, but who's counting?)
Hubby: yeah, I know. Even though I don't know what the hell it is. Look this one up and see if its what you want - Viking 936
Me: Viking! OMG! YES!
Hubby: It says its a good one with all the bells and whistles, I don't know what any of this means but there is a long list of features. And I figure you won't upgrade, might as well start at the top.
Me: (Having a mini-heart attack of joy and wondering if this is all a dream) true, I've had my sewing machine for 17 years and haven't upgraded. I'll look up the 936. Hope it has a differential feed.
Hubs: If that's not what you want, pick one and let me know. Unless you want something else for Mother's Day and Graduation.
Me: No, it's a great idea! I could make all the princess dresses for the little girls!
Hubby: What does this thing do anyway? Why is a serger so special?
Me: It ....oh, how do I explain this.... it, it takes the "home made" look out. Things will look more like you bought them at a store. The stitches look like... um, the stitching inside your clothes, see that, that's what it does.
Him: hmm. ok.
So, I've been looking up the Viking 936 and its an amazing machine. I'm not finding any bad reviews on it, but I am not really finding a whole lot about it either. Most people have a Singer or a Brother or something popular like that, which is giving me second thoughts. But... the more I look at this machine the more I drool over it. It's a Husqvarna Viking Huskylock 936.
Anyone know anything about it? Do I really want this one? Or should I consider another brand/model? I don't want to start with one I'll outgrow in a year, why upgrade, just start with the one I will keep and use forever. What do you have? Do you love it?
I'm so excited!!!
