My New Machine!
After 15 years of long and faithful service, the time had come to say goodbye to my old sewing machine. With so many different makes, models and features available on today's market, it was difficult choosing a replacement.
After a lot of research (Special thanks to Google!), I narrowed my choice to two different machines -- both computerized and manufactured by Brother. The first sewing machine had 297 built-in stitches! Holy Cow! And the second machine had 67 stitches . . . . but . . . . it can embroider and has a USB port to download embroidery and applique patterns. After sewing with only six built-in stitches, anything was an improvement!
I am now the proud owner of the 2nd machine, a Brother SE-400, and after sewing with a very basic Singer, I'm in LOVE. My new machine threads its own needle, stops when the thread breaks, has a clear bobbin cover, etc., etc. It's jam packed with nifty features, and I've been busy re-learning how to sew and can't wait to embroider.
I've been wanting to take my art in new directions, and my Muse has been whispering (sometimes shouting) tons of creative ideas. Now I've got the perfect tool to start new art journeys. I can't wait to start exploring!!! And, by the way, my old machine is going to my grand daughter, who can't wait to give it a new home and begin creative journeys of her own!
Wishing you a day filled with new discoveries!
