A co-worker stopped me in the hall yesterday to ask me a personal question:
What sewing machine do you use?Thirty minutes later we were still chatting away about quilting, daughters moving off to college, and the desire to find something we could be passionate about outside of work. Funny how you can pass someone in the hall ever day, sit through numerous meetings together and one little question can change everything! (I love it!) (PS: Click HERE for my Grow Your Blog Give-Away.)
So here's my beloved sewing machine:
I just realized she was three years old this past Christmas.
I especially love her touch panel and array of decorative stitches as used here.
There's really nothing I don't like about her.
Note: I do not quilt on her. So this has worked perfectly for me when it comes to piecing.
My choice of purchase was also influenced by these factors: I wanted to be able to get it easily cleaned and serviced, repaired if needed and take classes to learn more about using it. So I bought from our local sewing machine store.
So what would you recommend to someone who is upgrading their machine to start this wonderful hobby of ours? (I've seen mention of Janome often??)
PS: I gave my co-worker my blog address so she can read your comments and guidance.
