About sewing machines.
I've kinda-sorta mentioned this before, but I HATE my sewing machine. I swear that I spend at least as much time fighting with it as I do sewing with it. It's a cheap-o bottom of the line Singer that was awesome when I got it 3 1/2 years ago. Mostly because it was a sewing machine and for the two or three (easy) projects I had time to tackle a year, it did what I needed it to. Which was: make it so that I didn't have to hand sew the whole thing.
Fast forward to now, where I sew just about every day, it's causing a blood pressure raising amount problems. I'm so tired of fighting tension, needles, fabric, TENSION. ARG!
I've been saving up to get a serger, because, let's be honest, I need one of those too.
So here's where the advice seeking comes in: Do I get a new and MUCH better sewing machine first or the serger??
The hubster thinks I should get the serger because I already have a sewing machine so getting a new one can wait.
I'm starting to think that I will go crazy if I have to keep fighting the darn thing.
So, my sewing friends, what to do?
Any machine recommendations will also be VERY welcomed.
I seriously appreciate any insight you have.
