I am sooooo excited! I finally weakened and bought myself a new (to me) sewing machine. I sincerely feel like art quilting is something I want to throw my heart and soul into, and the little ole' Singer Simple was just not cut out for what I am doing. I was worried my SO would think I was nuts, but he was really supportive. "You've got to have the proper tools to do a good job at whatever you do," was his attitude. (I wonder if this means a new table saw is coming along soon?? LOL. He deserves it).
So ANYWAY - I got a used Janome MemoryCraft 6600. It's nothing super fancy but everything about it is light years ahead of where I was. I can't wait to get home and sew tonight. What a geek.
