    I know you are in for some exciting sewing/embroidery. I have the Bernina 180 e, I love doing towels and especially cup towels and pillowcases. I always have a 'few' gifts on hand ! I like the big, cotton,old fashioned cup towels, they are not easy to fine (or cheap), but worth the hunt. My last gift was a travel suit bag, used a bright,floral denium fabric, put her name on it - she loved it. One spring, I made 50 something towels for my daughter to give as graduation gifts ! I was sure glad to finish that project.

    Congrats!! It's so exciting to get a new machine! I think I was smiling for days after I got mine. You are going to have so much fun sewing without worrying about tension problems, etc. Have fun and enjoy it!

    Patti -
    I hope you love your new machine. I have a B 630e and an old B 930, both of which I love. My husband has done most of the embroidery, so I am on a long learning curve. Good luck in your classes.

    Congratulations what a lovely new toy. Its great that you are having lessons that helps a bunch. You will love the embroidery feature. I can set mine up and go and make a cup of tea while it embroiders me something real pretty. Hasten to add not if it has load of different colours cause then it stops and asks you to put a different colour in. There is a gorgeous butterfly on my machine and its been done to death. :D :D

    Thanks for the link. This opened up a whole new world for me and to tell you the truth, its a bit overwhelming right now. I'm sure as I learn, it will all fall into place though :lol:

    Go to Yahoo, groups, and sign up for some of the embroidery groups. You will learn from all the more experienced, and they are always posting links to free designs. You will soon have more designs than you can ever sew. My hint is to set up a filing system on the computer to place your desingn in catogories. That's the only way to find what you need later. There is even a site that has this already done for you, all you need do is download. I don't remember the link, but if you get in most any group, someone will be able to post the link for you. Have fun ( I have bernina 180 e)

    Thanks loads for the info. I'll definetly sign up for some of the groups and the filing system is a great idea. I now officially have so many toys that I don't know which one to play with first :lol:
