A Tale of Two Sewing Machines

Two totally different sewing machines.  One an expensive machine, bought new for several hundred dollars.  The other one bought used for $6.99 at Goodwill, missing a piece in front of the arm.  Guess which one I regularly use.  Surprisingly, it's the cheap little used one.   Although I love the expensive one, it's been plagued with mechanical problems and I've already spent several hundred dollars more getting it "fixed".  

I bought the used sewing machine for my children when I was teaching them how to sew.  It's been abused and mistreated over the years but keeps on working.  I suppose when it finally breaks, I'll "retire" it for good and fix the big, fancy machine again but that day isn't here yet.
Moral of the story - Expensive isn't always better.  
                        Or - Even if you can't afford the best, you might get along just fine with                                 something a little more humble.
