I have a new baby and I have not mentioned it here.
This is what I have been sewing on for the past couple of weeks.
I love it.
This is my first computerised sewing machine (aside from a short fling with a Singer Curvy 8770). I love all the nifty little things it has that my old dinosaur did not have. Funnily enough, it is the little things that thrill me most. A needle threader! Yes, something that threads the needle for me. How good is that?!
It does not have as many stitches as some other machines, but it does have all the stitches I would use. It does not have many embroidery stitches but really, how often will I use those?
Okay, so my short fling with the Curvy 8770. I bought it on Ebay for a song and Mum was going to take my dinosaur, but after sewing on the Curvy, there was no way I could give Mum the dinosaur. So Mum got the Curvy for Mother's Day and I got the Janome.
In comparison, the Curvy does not feel as sturdy as the Janome although it is heavier. It doesn't matter for Mum though, as she would rarely use it to sew heavy fabrics.
