    you can go on line to BeadsofCourage and get the info, these bags are given to children with cancer or other serious illnesses, when they get a blood test or chemo or other tests they get a "bead" to put in the bag for being brave. It is a work of love but they are easy to make using just a fat quarter! The hospital all over the US are using them

    What is a Beads of Courage bag? Can you provide a photo &/or instructions? It sounds interesting.

    Goodness No, that's not a lot of hours. But...I'd be leery of a D1 unless the price was fabulous. That model has been out for around 15 years, and floppy disks are totally passe. You're at the point where you have no warranty on electronics & the screen is at the age where it should be replaced. I'd look for something else, but that's just my opinion

    Good decision, new is always the best route. Just like buying a pick up. Hard telling how it was used.

    I have a D1 and it does a terrific job. Drive it and listen, you will know if it is still in good condition. It's not the number of hours it's been used, it's the way it was used. ie heavy denims, leathers etc will wear any machine out faster.I also have an 1100 viking sewing machine and I bought it about 1986 I do all my leather work (not embroidery machine) on it.

    Check my web page. I host retreats here in FL for shops, guilds or small groups. We have our favorite event sites, but will do our best to locate an appropriate size site in your area for your group size. We will host private (for guild or small group) or open registration.

    I signed up for Windy Butler Burns free motion class on Craftsy. It is ok and she does a good job of answering your questions. I love that you get to keep your class indefinitely so you can go back anytime and watch it again as a refresher.
    A good free resource is http://freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/
    This is by Leah Day and she is just starting a new quilting project for this year. I am excited because she is going to be doing bigger quilting designs. He previous project was very small quilt designs. Her blogs are great and she is a doll.
