Birthday Present

I used to sew a lot years ago. I made almost all my clothes. Shirts and even a few suits for my husband. And then one day I traded my old Singer in for a new machine.
The new machine was a horrible, horrible machine. A Singer Futura. I had 3 of them in as many weeks. Finally, I took that back to the Singer store and took home a Touch and Sew. I really wasn't much happier with that machine. The salesman told me they didn't build machines any more for women who sewed like I did.

HOW do you sew??????? jI also made all my own clothes and my kids' as well--Oshkosh b'Gosh overalls and ruffled multilayer lace trimmed dresses, etc. I have a thirty year old Bernina, all mechanical, no glowing red LED lights anywhere, seven basic stitches and maybe seven presser feet. These new machines--does anybody really sew solid medallions of flowers and cartoon characters on all their washcloths and towels?
