    Same here. A good way to learn your machine though.

    great stitches, looks like it will be a great machine to do some playing on. a friend used all her fun stitches to quilt a quilt of just squares, it looked really cute.

    Awwww you quilters are toooo smart! I've never thought of doing that . . . but I will! Maybe that'll encourage me to DO some of those stitches on something! Got all the bells and whistles and only go forward and backwards! :(

    Thanks

    no your not the only one..i did that too! i even went so far as to elongate and widen the stitches..to also see what they will look like. and since my janome 6000 is computerized, i wrote down the setting next to the stiches that i liked in magic marker!

    If you ever need feet for it you can use the janome parts... since they are made by the same company. Both of mine are Kenmore's and i love the stitch options on it.

    That was a great way to get used to your new machine!

    I also do that and keep it handy to refer to it when I want to make some embroidery on something. I am a visual person and it helps me a lot to see it made up. I stitched mine from one to what ever on my old bernina 830 and taped it to the inside of the accessories box. I never use that machine anymore. I should sell her. She is a real work horse.

    The new bernina has too many to do this with.

    Wow, you've been really busy with your new/used machine!

    Being another visual person, I think this is a great idea and may do it for my own new/used machine.

    Have you decided on what your first project will be with the new machine?

    Yay! I'm glad you like it! I hope Lola treats you as well as she did me :) She's a wonderful machine!

    She has a lot of stitch features. I don't think I used half of them! I wish you two a wonderful life together :D
    Give her a hug for me!

    I'm planning on working with my DGD on a baby quilt for her 1 yr old sister. My oldest DGD is 13yrs old & she wants to make a quilt for her baby sister (my 1 yr old DGD). :D

    That's funny!! I was thinking that I should have written down the numbers when I was almost done. LOL

    No, you're not the only one. I find my sampler comes in handy when deciding on a stitch. It helps to see the actual stitch rather than the diagram on the sewing machine guide.

    It's a Kenmore model 385.16627
    I bought it "used" from sugarpumpkin & she named it Lola so the name is going to stick. Not sure what year it is. :D
