We were waiting for this to arrive!
Actually, I have an emotional attachment to my sewing machine -- and I couldn't bear the thought of Sofia learning to sew with it. I purchased the machine in the photo from Walmart -- it got excellent reviews for and from beginners -- it is currently online at their website for $55.00 with free shipping. I will let you know if it is worth the price after we take it out of the box.
Oh, what about the other box in the photo? That's a little more Christmas fabric for me to play with! :-)
