SIL is the best.
One night while she was perusing Joanne's, looking at sewing machines to put on her Christmas list, she ran into a a nice lady who just finished teaching a sewing class.
Long story short, The lady had 2 Singer machines that were opened and used for the class, but not purchased.
SIL bought one, and bought me the other.
(Don't worry, I paid her back.)
We both got a free canvas travel case for free.
When SIL got home, the price of the said machines had jumped $100.
I love my SIL.
And my new sewing machine.
