Busted my next month's savings....

... as I got myself:

1) A new computerized Brother sewing machine (Innovis IS-30).


I got it at a pretty discounted price at SGD598 at Courts (and it was the last day of that sale >< ). I saw the same machine selling at more than SGD700 at Spotlight on the same day.

2) A Silhouette Cameo machine from Studio Calico.


It's the only shop that ships to Singapore with free shipping (free international shipping over $100, free domestic shipping over $75 within US). After conversion, I paid about SGD383 for it. Which is more than 100 bucks cheaper than if I were to buy Craft Robo (equivalent to Silhouette SD) from a local online store. It is also about the same price as the Slice cutter that's sold at a local scrapbooking store. I have considered that portable machine before but I prefer to have a machine which I can input my own designs.

... Oh well, on the positive note, I managed to get these 2 wishlist items at a pretty good deal. Come to think about it, I only had 3 items on my wishlist, and I'm not going to change my overlocker any time soon..

Hi there,

I just wanted to ask you some questions about the Cameo you bought from Studio Calico. Is the US voltage compatible with Singapore/Malaysian voltage? Thanks!

Hi! I have replied to your gmail account!

love your blog and envy on ur new toys ,especially the CAMEO.
i having the same question as Kim C,
How's the compatibility of voltage with Singapore and Malaysia?Do u think they still provide free shipping to SIngapore now?

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks! Yes, the Cameo comes with a power adapter that is compatible with our local/M'sia voltage. (The adapter accepts 100V to 240V)

You do need a travel plug adapter that has sockets which can accept the US 2 pin flat-bladed plug though.

As for shopping at Studio Calico, I believe international shipping is free if you spend over USD100. (Just tried it, yup, I think it's still free!)

p.s. I checked my FB yesterday and saw that a "Cheryl" liked my page.. Not sure if you are the same Cheryl, coz I PMed you there..

Cheryl said...

Hi there

i really like your page.. awsm stuff. Curious i just noticed your post regarding the free intl shipping of the Silhouette cameo from Studio Calico. So it includes Singapore as well? Is that still valid. Really really hope so.

Hi there!

I just checked the site. Looks like there's no more free international shipping.

If you are residing in Singapore, why not pre-order from Maple Treehouse (http://www.mapletreehouse.com/webshaper/store/viewProd.asp?pkProductItem=24756http://www.mapletreehouse.com/webshaper/store/viewProd.asp?pkProductItem=24756)? They priced the machine quite reasonably, I feel.
