My sewing machine is in Arizona already! Whee!

I phoned (or attempted to phone) 11 sewing machine purveyors in the local area today. I am in search of the Quantum Futura cheap-ass embroidery machine.

The first three numbers I called, I didn't even get an answer.

I found a place that carries Berninas, a place that carries Vikings and Janomes, a place that carries a single White (where's my barge pole?), and a place that carries an industrial model the size of a refrigerator. There is a guy in Westchester who seems to really know his stuff, but he's a total snob about the machines. (Good for him; I'd like to be a snob about the machines too, but I simply can't afford that at the moment.) There was a lady in Torrance who didn't have any embroidery machines at all but suggested I should call the other lady in Torrance -- yes, I just called her and I can't afford her Berninas, kthxbye.

I would really like the CE-200, which comes with the design-your-own-designs software included and has more stitches. Singer's own web site cannot tell me where to purchase that machine. For the CE-100, I am about to do the unthinkable and drop by the local Wal-Mart after work. Yes, I am that desperate.

Sigh. This machine seems to fit a niche that the retailers won't admit exists. Places like Target and Jo-Ann won't carry anything this high-end, and the "real" sewing shops won't carry anything this low-end. But... but... the whole concept is SO COOL!

Sigh. If Wal-Mart fails me, only another 20 or so places to call tomorrow. At least it should go fairly quickly.

Dear Singerco.com,

Congratulations! Your web site is SO irritating and hard to use that it will haunt me for quite some time. (Your utter inability to tell me where I can buy your spiffy embroidery machine is not helping your case either.)
