Okay as some of you allready know I'm looking for a new sewingmachine and I want to buy a locker too.

Going to the dealer in Amsterdam, I know that sounds really really bad :giggle: :giggle: , this saterday to try a few.

For this moment I think it's gonna be a Husqvarna Emerald 203 of a Husqvarna Sapphire 835 but I'm open for other ideas.
Dealer has a demo model of the Janome Jubilee 85 for a low price and that seems to be something like the Emerald so he's going to show me that one too.
I also know there's a new Pfaff machine coming soon and that seems like a good option too, it's the Ambition 1.5.

Feel free to spam me with good machine ideas or tell me what I really shouldn't get.

Lockerwise he has a Janome ML 744D on offer that seems like a good option.

And it's brill! Can do more and easier then I hoped, sewed a dress for Emi, couldn't finish it as waiting for the ribbon to arrive, but the stiches look so good, it went very smooth and the zipper wasn't a prob at all.


This was the Singer I had btw:

Well as you can see I'm very very happy with my new friend and I can see us getting old together in a very happy way.
