Fun for me? I pop on and off the computer to debate a few times a day.

I enjoy reading, sewing (both quilting and clothing construction, but my clothing skills pale in comparison to sewchris who I believe is a couture-level seamstress), counted cross stitch, surfing teh interwebz, watching TV, working out and playing with my cats.

I haven't got the slightest idea how much time per day I spend on these activities. I've never stopped to count before and don't really care enough to do so now. I do know I have a lot more time for it now than I did when John was little.

Hey, OT, but I don't know if you remember last year I was looking for a sewing machine for dd? The one I got her initially we returned and never replaced. I ended up getting a Pfaff from a dealer - do you know anything about them? We haven't used it yet but what I really liked about getting this one vs getting something from Sears/etc. is that the dealer will show dd and me both how to use it for free rather than trying to figure it out from a manual. Plus, if something happens to it and we have a question or need help, we can bring it in or call them and they will help for free (to a degree obviously). They also offer children's sewing classes for a reasonable price.

Anyway, just curious if you know anything about the Pfaff brand. I figured you might since it's German! :)

I know Pfaff is fairly popular on the PatternReview (dot com) boards, and most models get good/great reviews. Buying from a dealer is a good option for someone who could use the dealer support (lessons, questions answered, maintenance, that kind of thing). They have sewing machine reviews for just about every model of machine out there, so you can check up on the particular machine you bought DD if you'd like, or ask questions on the boards. The people there are very knowledgeable and they love to talk sewing machines :)

I work. I don't spend as much time at it as I did before grandkids. They are taking up more and more of my time.

Everyone I know who owns a Pfaff (including my boss at the bridal shop) loves theirs. And, if/when needed, they will get another Pfaff. Me, I'm a died in the wool Kenmore owner. But what counts is that your dd loves and uses the machine.
