    First project with my 160 Singer

    I'm very impressed with this new Singer. It seems like a really strong machine I made this pad for the table I put it on. I hope that everyone else feels the same way I do. Tomorrow I will make the cover for her.

    Very handy those things.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    OMG, I must be lost somewhere I have never seen that machine nor have I heard of it. She is absolutely beautiful!! I see that she has alot of stitches like any other machine but are you able to FMQ on her? Is she a lightweight machine or heavy. I absolutely love it, seriously salivating can you tell! Do you mind me asking where you found her, as I said have never seen one. Is that the new featherweight?

    Very nice table topper. Where did you find that cute fabric? Also I am glad your machine is doing a great job for you. They are saying that it is a good machine.

    This is the 160th Anniversary Singer I got her from HSN but was told a while back that they were going to sell them at Walmart sometime in the spring. Yes you can FMQ with her...she weights about 18 lbs....very happy with this machine.

    Your Singer is so beautiful! I have never seen one like it. The pad with pockets is perfect and I am going to make one. It will be especially handy when I go to my quilting group. Thanks for sharing.

    How sweet is this...I was thinking about getting this machine, had it in my shopping cart, and then changed my mind. I just don't have the room for it, and it would be a shame to keep in in the closet.
