    So my mom came out to visit for the week and as we start to unload her car, I open the trunk and see this! I go oh, you brought your machine. She goes, I brought it for you! I looked at her and then started jumping up and down! O H MY GOSH!!!! I couldn't believe it. She gave me her Babylock Esante! She got it a year and a half ago and a little too complicated for her. She likes her other machine better, so I got it. I used to tease her that if she didn't start using it, I would take it. :lol: :lol:

    So now I have to learn how to use it. Anyone have this one? Any pointers, suggestions??

    You are gonna love this! I have an Ellegante, so can understand your excitement! Try not to be intimidated if you can help it. (Not easy!) Read the manual. Then re-read it again and play around with your machine at the same time. Machine should have come with a Quick Reference Guide that is very useful.

    I see quilts, table runners, placemats, wall hangings, table toppers - whatever your mom likes - in her future! What a great surprise!

    YOu will like this machine. I have one of the first Babylock Esante's. I don't use it as much as I should. It has the embroidery attachment with it, too.
    I have a Bernina 160 that I love for piecing quilts. But the Babylock is a great machine for other sewing projects. Especially if I want to do some fancier stitches!.
    How nice of your MOM...hope she got a big hug for that!
