When I took my Pfaff 1371 in for servicing, I learned that the mother board, circuit and display boards had died. It was 25+ yrs old and I was going to let my daughter take it to school with her so she and her friends could do some sewing. Now, I don't have a sewing only machine. After looking over the Babylock website, I fell in love with the Babylock "Melody" sewing machine. It comes with an extension table, over 180 stitches, loads of presser feet and other nice accessories like a carrying case and a supply of tools. However, the MSRP was $1799 which was well above my budget. I looked at the "Rachel", the "Molly", and the "Amelia" machines which were more in line with what I could afford. While hubby talked to my dealer, I was looking at all of the machines. Then they came up to me and told me that there was pre-owned "Melody" that had just been serviced and had all new inside parts since the previous owner's home had been struck by lightening. My dealer and hubby thought that I would like and it was just a little over my budget but hubby would get it for me since he knew how much I wanted it. I am so blessed. So my early Christmas gift is the "Melody" ... I am thrilled beyond belief. I've already taken her for a test run as I work on a Christening/Baptismal gown.
