A couple of weeks ago, getting ready to attend my first ever Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting, I decided it was time for a new backup machine. The meeting was going to feature a paper piecing workshop, and I wanted to have a smaller machine that I could bring along with me. I do have an older Viking, that was my primary machine before I got my current big honkin' Janome, but it's pretty big and heavy, too.
Frankly, I didn't want to spend too much money on this new machine. I don't want to do actual quilting with it, so I don't need any FMQ capability, or really even a walking foot. I wanted a machine for basic piecing, and that's about it.
Luckily, there are a number of good machines that can be had for a pretty bargain price, and this is the one that I settled on:

I picked mine up at JoAnn on sale, but here are all the details over at Amazon, too.....
