I just inherited my mom's ancient Kenmore from the 70's... it's having issues, and I'm wondering if it's worth trying to get fixed or if I should just replace it? She bought it way back when, used it for about 3 years, and then stored it... so it hasn't been touched in 30+ years, and I don't think she ever had it serviced.
Another one we're looking into is the Brother CE5000 Project Runway edition - I saw some good reviews in here, but are there any other thoughts? I'm looking for something inexpensive that will still do thick fabrics.
If it is better to get the Kenmore fixed up, how much should I expect to pay? What should I look for in a shop?
