No, not that kind of brother. I have a new sewing machine y’all! A Brother XR 1300 that I picked up at Costco for $167. It sells for $220 on Amazon.com, so I feel like I stole it. We’ll see if I still feel that way after I’ve actually tried to use it.
I just took it out of the box. The instruction manual is big enough that they just went ahead and did a separate one for Spanish. There is also a sticker on the top of the machine with a 1-800 number to call customer service, not to mention an instructional DVD. That isn’t intimidating or anything. The message I’m receiving here is “this machine will frustrate you.” I shouldn’t be scared off though. The last sewing machine I had was in Germany and it didn’t even have English instructions. I was a first timer then and I managed to figure that out.
Wish me luck with the new sewing machine everybody. I’m gonna need it. You’ll know if I succeed in figuring it out if I ever get around to hanging new curtains in the dining room.
Has anyone else been intimidated by a new sewing machine, or maybe a different DIY/decorating tool?
