It's the small things that make you happy. My kids have patches that have to be sewn onto various uniforms. With carpal tunnel, hand sewing is nigh impossible now. I fished the sewing machine I bought used a couple of years ago out of the attic last night. I fiddled with that thing for over an hour before finally giving up. Then I got online and was reading up on my sewing machine and comparing it to what's out there. I decided perhaps the machine (a dressmaker 8000) was too complicated for me to figure out (without significant help). So I hit Wal-Mart today (for more than just a sewing machine) to check out options. I came home with their cheapest (a Brother) on impulse.

I've since finished my daughter's new Choi uniform (she's gone red & black) as well as her Brownie vest. Now on to my son's Cub Scout brag vest and my own new Choi uniform (I've gone blue). Whee!!
