A WHOLE Lot of Nothing

Happening here:

My sewing machine is at the shop.  The needle wouldn't move up and down when the pedal was pressed.  Just beep, beep, beeped like crazy.  I have had it for 7 years and am VERY worried.  I really don't want to buy a new machine right now when I am saving for a longarm machine.

My sick puppy is a Singer Quantum 4440

 I know Singer has gotten a bad reputation lately amongst the online community, but I have nothing bad to say about it.

It has a kajillion stitches including some special decorative embroidery stitches.  It came with a lot of feet, including a walking foot.  I have a separate machine for embroidery only.  I love that I can be sewing on my Singer while my Babylock works things out!

They are worried that the computer is "off".  Things might get really expensive.

  Apparently, they see a lot of machines that are computerized sewing machines out there.  They are wonderful, but like a car, you buy a fancy model, pay the fancy price, you are going to have to keep shelling out cash to keep them in shape.

In the meantime, I have been using my sons' sewing machine.
  It is a Brother LS-1717.

I bought them the blue version though! 
It is pretty handy, but VERY basic!!

Makes me miss my machine even more.... 

If it looks like I am buying a new machine, any suggestions?   


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
