sewing machines

It seems everyone has a story to tell aboutsewing machines.
Mine is... I tried my wifes machine... it left a lot to be desired.
I purchased a Phaf 230 converted to handle heavy duty canvas repair...it did a pretty good job, but wasn''t up to feeding 7.8 oz sailcloth or several layers of sunbrella through for a neat stich.
I finally bit the bullet and bought a sailright "sailmaker" machine. The diference was worth the nearly 2K price I paid for the machine.

Lesson learned....you get what you pay for when it comes to sewing machines.
