  2. For those of you purchasing a new machine...

    I just found this video on YouTube, which I feel can be VERY helpful to anyone buying a new sewing machine.
    He shows why you shouldn't buy a "big box store" machine. I just felt it may help save some heartaches and wallet woes.

    So excited that at the last minute I have decided to make the trip to Des Moines, IA for AQS Quilt Week!!!! I will drive up Friday after work, with my daughter, and go to the show on Saturday.

Oh my what fun that was. met so many lovely ladies, and learned new things, gained weight, made several blocks, used my FW 221 and it worked great, will be using it a lot more now.

How many of you still head for your sewing room, even when you don't feel good?
