    greeting from Massachusetts !

    Boy i had a hard time getting registered here and logging in but here I am - finally !

    I am an empty nester, mother of 4, the last one left for college this year and I am rediscovering the joy of sewing after a long hiatus. When my girls were small ( I have 3 girls) I sewed extensively for them, mostly holiday dresses and halloween costumes. Began quilting when the oldest when to college and made them all quilts, but took a few years off.

    Now that I ahve an empty Bedroom I have transformed it into my sewing room and am quilting like mad.

    Bought myself a new Brother CS6000i to replace my beloved old Kenmore,, which unfortunately lost a major bobbin case part which ir irreplacable - tried everywhere and found it online but it didn't fit just right .

    Found this board searching for answers to the noise issue with my new machine - still perplexed but the info here has been helpful.

    Thanks !

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I have found that the more solid the table, the less noise the machine makes. My machine on a built in desk makes considerably less noise then the machine on my table.

    Welcome and hope the new machine gets quieter for you ~ I would take it back if it is still under warranty though.

    Welcome aboard the Board from neighboring (well, almost) Vermont! I grew up in Milford, Mass. Do you have an interest in coming to the Vermont Quilt Festival this summer? Really, really nice show. Let me know if you are coming!
    We are here to learn how to live in heaven - I'm still learning.
