new sewing machine

Saturday, April 06, 2013

well. I couldn't get my old machine going. It has been a good soldier - have no idea how old it is - and I've been sewing A LOT lately.

So I bought a new one - 100 embroidery stitches, embroiders letters, 8 different one-step buttonholes, and came with a 1/4" foot, a walking foot, and a free-motion foot - all of which I have used in the last two days. It's a Brother, so I didn't break the budget or ruin my retirement fund, but I really, REALLY love it.

I worked on the quilt that broke my other machine (free motion), then I quilted twice around my Christmas infinity (walking foot), and I put together the fourth of my placemats( 1/4 " foot)

I am happy....

    I am with you on the Brother. Have a couple of them and have had great luck with them. They are 5 - 10 years old, and I go in streaks. Will do hours of sewing for weeks on end, and then it will sit lonely for a couple of months. Usually during the summer months. Congratulations on the new machine.

    Oh, I am SOOO jealous. I have a couple of Brother machines (I LOVE sewing machines), but haven't taken the time to see much lately. I recently took a machine quilting class and need lots of practice.

    I do most of my sewing on a Viking #1 but have lots of antique treadles and hand crank machines which I am sure will outlast the electronic one. I do use the old ones too and they sew very well.

    OH, what fun! I love my Viking which is 2 years old. It sews and sews and is due for a cleaning soon. Enjoy!
