Yes-here's my hundred dollar Brother sewing maching, which my husband got me for Christmas, oh about 9 or 10 years ago, I think. He wasn't so happy that it sat in the box for a year, never opened. Then one day I was bored and decided to get it out and I read the instruction booklet and tried to figure things out. I found some old material and started practicing. I went to the library and checked out a bunch of quilting books. Went to the fabric store, got material and sewed together a quilt top. Dusted off the quilting frames my in-laws had gotten me probably two years earlier and hand quilted the darn thing myself. I cannot believe now I had the patience to do that. I don't remember now how many quilts I've made, but quite a few!
Though I've wanted to throw him out the window a few times, my Brother has been pretty darn faithful and reliable for being
cheap inexpensive and old vintage!
