New Janome sewing machine baby...
I have been battling away with my 17 year old sewing machine of late and trying to machine quilt with it. I have known for a while now it hasn't cut the mustard. The seams pucker and the stitching accuracy is not there. Sure it was great for ordinary dressmaking and sewing but quilting with it was not wonderful.
What celebrations there were in my world this week when hubby agreed I could get a new sewing machine. It is a Janome 2160DC.
Finally I can have the right feet attachments! I can get an accurate seam with a 1/4 inch foot. I now can machine quilt using a walking foot. And I can finally stipple with a darning foot.
So far I am loving the new machine. It is so smooth and easy to operate. I have 60x stitches to choose from and some pretty swish hand-operated buttons to start/stop when I please and needle down at the end of a seam. I look forward to showing you a pretty flowery stitch it does.
Look out for more quilting projects from me (mostly UFOs sitting in my cupboard);
Thanks for visiting.
