    New addition to sewing "family"

    On Friday I got a NEW Brother Innov-is 1500D
    combo sewing/embroidery machine. I already
    have the NV1000 machine, but I wanted one
    that had a larger embroidery area.

    Here it is Sunday and I have YET to even plug the
    new machine in, much less play with it.

    The reason I have been TRYING to clean and organize
    my sewing room as this machine is going to take up
    more room than the other machine because of the size.

    So when I take small breaks from cleaning to "regroup"
    my brain; I have been reading the owners manual and I
    made some fun and interesting discoveries about my new
    baby.

    1) I can now wind bobbins at the same time I am sewing.

    2) It has a bobbin storage pegged tray on the back side of
    where the free arm is.

    3) It has a presser foot knee lifter bar (yippee!!!)

    4) It came WITH the FMQ foot, walking foot, side cutter foot
    and an extra bobbin case. (I had to buy the FMQ &walking feet
    for my old machine).

    Now I just need to get my sewing room CLEAN so that I can
    play with the new sewing "family" member.
