Sneak Peek: New Sewing Machine

Sorry to keep you in suspense!  I thought I’d be able to post before the weekend, but I’ve been buried in work and projects and then went out of town for the weekend.  I don’t have time to tell you all about it now, but here’s a peek at what was inside ONE of the boxes.

I’m excited and proud to introduce (one of the) newest additions to my work space, MY NEW SEWING MACHINE, my first sewing machine EVER!  It’s a Brother PC-420 and it is incredible.  I’ll give you a full review once I’ve spent more time on it, but I just wanted to show you one of the reasons I’ve been so busy – I can’t get off the machine!  I want to call in sick from work and sew, sew, sew!  Stay up all night and sew, sew, sew!  This thing has more settings and feet and stitches than I’ll ever need, but it’s nice to know they are there!  Now I have to read the 200 page manual and figure out how to use everything.  And maybe give her a name?? :)

Now, I don’t think that new and fancy machines are necessary for good quality sewing.  The ones I’ve borrowed in the past were excellent machines and I was perfectly happy with them (and extremely grateful that I was able to use them).  But it feels good to finally have my own machine.  And to have something BRAND new.  I feel like I have to take good care of it.  And make amazing things with it.  And I WANT to make amazing things with it.  And it was all possible because of some very generous and loving friends and family members.  They pulled together to give me the money for the machine.  Their support and belief in me as I pursue my passion is priceless.  And now they’ll be a part of everything that I sew!  And any successes I have, will be thanks to them.  And through all the struggles I have, I know they’ll be right there with me.  And now I’m getting ridiculously cheesy, so I need to stop.

I LOVE MY NEW MACHINE.  Now I just need more time to play on it!!
