sewing machines

does anyone have a brand/type they'd suggest?
Ive been using a new singer 4411 but it absolutely hates fur. Ive also been hearing alot of bad reviews with newer ones, so I might retire it to sewing normal stuff and maybe fixing my jeans.

I have a Kenmore 1400 built in the early 70s, its missing the bobbin housing and piece that fits in, but the whole thing is metal, and the machine itself weighs probably 40 pounds, and has a 1.2 amp motor. I dunno if thats powerful in the sewing machine world but I am able to run it (just not actually sew with it yet). its very smooth, quiet, not bad for a machine I got for $30 at a goodwill (I actually bought the table, didnt even know there was a sewing machine inside it until I got home.)

other options are a Phaff serger machine that Im looking at, an older Thompson with a built in walking foot, and a new Sailrite that a friend suggested. all around the $600-$700 dollar mark.

so just wondering, what do you guys use/suggest? ^^

What should I do?

Ive been torn lately whether or not to keep this job driving trucks. It pays pretty good when Im not broke down (like I am now... again) its something that was fun when I started, but now its just getting to be stressful. Its the coldest winter in years, which makes it all the more dangerous and stressful. I'm tired of putting up with shipping personnel, DOT officials, Dispatchers, other truckers, and pretty much everyone I run into. This is a job where if you arent over 60, you get no respect. Over the past few months Ive came close to death at least 3 times from people just not paying attention. If you talk to me on a regular basis, and I seem annoyed or depressed all the time, chances are its because of this job. I also have a hard time finding time for the commissions Im overdue on, when Im not driving Im either too tired or stressed out to pick up a pencil and be creative. I really dont want to do this for the rest of my life. So here's the deal.
I already have a few people that want to buy fursuits from me. I also have people asking all the time if Im open for commissions (which Im not, since Im still overdue on the $5 sketches from September, and 2 from last year I really need to finish). I also would like to take some college classes. Its hard to do art commissions on the road, and pretty much impossible to work on fursuits.

What Im asking is, should I stay with this company, A job that I do not really like, but know for certain I have a paying job with regular income? Or should I quit, Move in with my mother, (who's losing a roommate in a month anyway) and take a chance trying my hand at fursuit building, and commissions, and perhaps get a job on the side?

Poll #1510241 what should I do?

What should I do?

Stay with a job that I do not like, but keep a steady income
Take a chance at something I may love, but might not work out.

anyway thanks for your help! =03
