Just picked up my new machine, an 8900 Janomee, on Tuesday and have only been able to sew 2 short rows of stitches using 1/4" pressor foot. Ended up back in the hospital again by pulling my brand new hip replacement out of scoket again. This time it is cemented in place and if I pull it out will end up in w/c for life. Anyway this beautiful machine is waiting for me. Will be taking an application class in a couple of weeks but the class I am excited about is for FMQ class that I am signed up for. Until I feel like getting behind the sewing table I can at least study the book.
