Anyway, I'm not sure when I decided I want to learn to sew but I did. I asked others for sewing machine recommendations. I looked at tons of reviews and articles on what to look for in a machine. I knew I wanted something that wasn't too cheap or too expensive. I wanted something that could do basic sewing but also something that would allow me to do art quilting type work, if I wanted to (so something that would allow me to lower the feed dogs or come with a plate to cover the feed dogs). I even asked my mom if she had my grandma's machine but she gave it away. I got overwhelmed with the amount of information and ended up putting my search on the back burner for a while. Randomly several months later, I ended up asking some mom friends for recommendations and one of them recommended the Brother XL2600i The price was good, the machine had generally good reviews, it comes with a darning plate to cover the feed dogs and Christmas was coming. Haha! It was a wonderful present to open up on Christmas.

Do you sew? If you do, what's your first memory of learning to sew or learning to use a machine? If you don't, is there something you want to learn to do or make?
