    New machine!

    I got me a new machine today! I am so pleased. I have been sewing on a Brother cs6000i for about 8 years now and had just thought sewing machines are pretty much all alike! Boy was I wrong! I spent the last week researching online and when I got to the quilt shop I thought Id just tell her what I wanted, try it and go. Well she showed me the Juki 2200 mini instead and I felt like a new woman! I love her so much that she is the first machine that has gotten a name....LilyBelle. It just came to me as I was setting her up at home. My husband said go for it as he says he recognizes that its a hobby I am going to stay with.....❤️

    Great for you!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Congrats! I love my 2200 Mini. Just make sure to keep the bobbin area clean and keep her well oiled.

    I have a Juki 2010 and LOVE it so much that I prefer it over my fancy machine that cost 10X as much! The best thing about it is that it will perform like a champ for years to come!

    Yes, that's a fabulous machine. I learned to fmq on my Juki2010Q... such a great machine for quilting. Just be sure to clean lint out of the bobbin area, and most importantly, the feed dogs, where it can build up and interfere with your tension.

    Congrats and have fun!
