You'll also notice my new sewing machine! Along with my new crafting space I wanted to get a new sewing machine to really start fresh. I also wanted something lighter, and this 'lil guy weighs only 12 lbs! My other machine (Pfaff Grand Quilter) weighs almost 30 lbs. and is semi-industrial. After weeks of shopping for a sewing machine (i tried the Pfaff Smarter and Brother machines, and Bernina) I decided to go with this one. I totally winged it too as I bought it online without having had tested it first. So far I am so happy with my choice...it sews like butter, it has a start/stop button, an up/down needle, AND it was less than $300!
Anyway, if anyone is interested to hear more about my new Janome let me know and I can do a post.
