#BLOGLIKECRAZY 3: WELCOME TO THE FAMILY...

...the sewing machine family that is.


This Brother VX11-20 was gifted to me this past weekend by a lovely group of my family members, the Hughes' (Anthony, Shena, Chuck, Kenny and Telly).  Truly this is one of the sweetest families I know - and not just because they are my cousins.  They lost their Mother about 3 years ago, and lost their Father this past September. My heart goes out to them! This machine belonged to their lovely, sweet  Mother who ALWAYS made me feel so welcome in her home.  My cousins decided that they wanted me to have it because they knew that I would put it to good use.  Thank you so much Cousins!

I have never owned a Brother machine.  It came to my home without a manual, but I know it won't be a problem finding one on the internet.  This was such a sweet gesture, one that I will cherish for a very long time. I think it speaks volumes to what they think of me...

  2. What a sweet gesture. Enjoy it and all the sweet memories of time spent with your aunt. I have 4 Brother machines, and all are pretty user friendly and reliable.

  5. Nice machine :) My BFF gave me one a few years back. I had to service it a little myself. I took it to work to sew on my lunch break but never got a chance to. FIESTA ;)
