Hello gals (I'm assuming mostly gals). I recently lost my Elna 8000 due to a bobbin winder failure and the inability of my repair shop to get this part. Even tho I have several other machines, I was left with a hole on my "garage" (sewing machine shelving unit), and a hole in my heart. Tonight I purchased a Viking 500 on ebay. I'm just posting 'cause I'm wound up and hoping I won't regret this! I hesitated to buy an older computerized machine, but I couldn't seem to stop myself. Is there a group for people like me? Or am I the only one?

You are not alone.

You've come to the right place.

Go ahead and share your anxieties here.

I can't share mine just yet as the issue has not been resolved, but when that day finally arrives, I'll be looking for the nearest soap box.

I bought an "older" Viking computerized model off of eBay recently and love it. It was my dream machine about nine years ago, but I couldn't afford it then. The eBay price was less than half of what the machine would have cost me nine years ago. I love my "new to me" Viking sewing machine! Congratulations and happy sewing!

Raises hand. I recently bought a Pfaff 2040, and I couldn't be happier. I never would have been able to afford it new.
