A New Addition to Our House
Don't think I could be any more excited...last Friday I test drove a Janome Memory Craft 6600...I knew I was going to like it a lot because I'd sewn on Lynda Hall's machine when we were working on the cancer project. Then I heard from lots of you that have one how much you love it. So yesterday, we went and picked it up...I've been a Bernina girl for probably 30 years...I have a 20+ year old Bernina 1230 that I have put thousands and thousands of miles on over the years...it's been a GREAT machine. When I had it in for it's yearly spa treatment back in May, my service guy called me to tell me he had some bad news...there was some major gear that was almost worn out...to make it worse, he can't get parts for it anymore...well, maybe he could locate it on EBay, but it just wouldn't make any sense to put that kind of money in to this old machine. I brought it home and sewed away on it for several more months...last month it started making really bad noises...just like he said. So I had a ceremony and put it safely in its case...out came the 30 year old Bernina...it sews like a dream but I really want it to be my backup machine not my full-time machine...so here it is......my new machine...Mr. Quilt Holder snuck in with the camera and took a picture of me putting the first mile on her......looking forward to putting thousands of miles on her.
