Last week I went with a friend to the Creative Crafts Show in Belfast.
Sewing, card making, beads, cross stitch - everything was covered!
I said those famous last words:
" I'm not buying any fabric!"
Well of course, you know the story too well!
I did end up buying a little, teeny bit of fabric.
This was another purchase I made:
Oh I'm not crazy, it was not a spur of the moment decision.
I had been considering this for some time.
In fact, ever since the Festival of Quilts last August in Birmingham,
I had a hankering for this machine.
It arrived on Monday, and I very quickly removed it of it's packaging and got it plugged in.
Ignoring the Instruction Book, as you do :)
It was easy to get threaded and bobbin winding was not a problem.
I even managed to sew some of the 600 odd stitches
that are programmed in to the machine!
Next on my list is free machine quilting....
I think I'll have to go back to the instruction booklet..
just to make sure I'm following the right steps!
I'll let you know how I get on.
There's a Titanic wall hanging waiting to be quilted :)
What sort of machine do you sew on?
