Well I decided on the Espire and have already sealed the deal. The only thing I am waiting for the machine to come in. The owner of the sew n vac near me called (Monday) and is expecting a shipment tomorrow. I cant wait!! It has been a looooonnnggg week. Hopefully it will come early Thursday and I can pick it up after work. I hope I dont have to wait until Friday !!!LOL!!! I already took the day off on Friday. We are finally finishing the basement and I will have a dedicated Sewing Room!!! I would like to ask opinions on organizing the space. I am not sure how I will set everything up. It is a pretty large room so I am now trying to figure out what I will need and would love some suggestions?? I still have to order my gravity iron but am waiting for my refund for the return first. I have been sewing a little here and there. I have Simplicity 2501 all done except the buttons and buttonholes. I love it and will definitely make it again. I gotta get someone to take a picture of me in it though.
