Guess what I got for Christmas?
Yup. I can make fancy stitches now.
Not that I'll use them all the time, but you know- I can.
I'm excited! Don't be jealous of my truck stitch.
J and I originally went to the Bernina store but quickly discovered that they were all out of price range. They had some basic Brother machines that were in price range, but I wasn't too impressed. There weren't many features that I didn't already have on my $75 K-mart sewing machine. Not to say that they are not good quality machines, but I wanted a little flashiness.
I'm not knocking my old machine either. It's sewed a tipi, a tailored a coat and has started upholstering a couch. But I was ready for a few more options. I wanted a few more choices other than straight or zig zag. So we did a little shopping around town. A little research on the internet and I settled on this one. And since my old machine is a Singer, I already knew how to thread it. All the functions are familiar, which is nice. It came with about eight different feet. I've been playing around with all the funky stitches even though I know they are not all practical. I'm working out some tension issues. The tension is much more sensitive than I'm used to. But, I can tell we are going to be great friends.
J, thank you for the awesome gift.
You and Miss Superb are the...
