As I said, I have wanted one for ages, but not to make lots of stuff with commercial designs. I wanted to be able to digitize my own work and sew it out and to make lace-of course.
The last day and a half, after getting it home, I have been on a steep learning curve and have finally got it doing commercial designs correctly. I have made just about every mistake I could make and finally feel comfortable with it.
I now have three of these worked on different fabrics with different colours. I have had these blocks lying around for a while and I thought this would be a great way to practice, and end up with a quilt as well!
So my new toy is up and running. Now I have to tackle an even steeper learning curve of digitzing my own drawings and getting them to stitch out the way I want. The great thing about this is that I can be doing two things at once. As I am right now - blogging whilst the machine sews away next to me!
