    Smile I am getting a new sewing space- can't wait

    My DH and I have decided to move to a small town outside Toronto. I will have my own sewing room in the downstairs (oh well- one compromise). It is 16' x 14'- big enough for my Tin Lizzie, new storage cabinets with glass doors for my stash (no more bins), a new sewing table (can't decide between a Koala and a Horn), a permanent cutting table and the best part- a new Bernina 750QEE!! I can't wait until we move in and get settled- August seems so far away. Lucky me.

    Great news!!!
    For your new sewing furniture, you might want to check out ...
    http://www.eddycrest.com/

    They have quite a few models to choose from, and you can customize to your liking as well. I felt it was every bit as good as many of the other ones on the market, and with it being Ontario made, it had a better price tag!

    Now of course, you have me wondering if you are moving near me!!!

    Oh you are one lucky lady!!!! I was just dreaming about what it would be like to have more room. So sorry you have to wait until August, but heck Christmas is in December, yours will come 4+ months early!!!

    Sounds like a wonderful plan!!! For my recent 60th birthday, my sweet DH gave me the Bernina 750QE with a Horn table... the quilter's dream (or something like that...) I'm in quilting heaven!!! Have fun with your new room and machine!!!

    It's the shipping costs that'd probably scare you!

    I Love your quote. I sat at the computer to look for a tutorial and over an hour later I still haven't done that. How will my project ever get finished?
