Well, Heather and I have been going back and forth on this and we’ve decided that I need my own machine. I was going to use one of Heathers but it quickly became obvious that we each needed a machine to piece quilt tops. We think we’ll be able to share the big machine for the actual quilting part. I did see a nice free motion quilting machine at the sewing center that would just fit in my room … we’ll see what happens.
We bought another Janome machine as Heather has been using those for years and she knows enough about this new one to help me get started. The sewing shop includes a new machine class for each purchase so I get to take everything back on Friday for an official lesson on how the thing works.
Just another step closer to getting some real work done. The days here are starting to show signs of turning to winter so I hope to be setup for quilting during the colder months. It’s starting to look like I won’t have a heated wood shop this winter so this should keep me creating stuff till that project is done.
Here are a couple of quick pictures of my current setup. Next step is to get some real furniture for my sewing area.
I had hoped to do some videos on this, but my computer has had some major problems that have killed iMove on my Mac. Looks like my system is so old (10 years) that I’ll have to buy a new system to get back in the video business.
Well, just something else to do on cold autumn days.
