    WooHoo!! my new machine

    Here is a picture of my new machine it is a Brother VQ2400 with a 11inch throat space... I can't wait to do some FMQ on it..I got it on Friday we were kind of late getting home and then had to finish up in the barn, I hope I can figure it out from the book, but I think I will call on Monday and ask when I can come in for some help running this machine. Boy there is a lot to learn on it but I will get it.. It is a long way to go to the dealer about 75 miles but I think it will be well worth having someone help me with it.

    Anyway just wanted to show everyone my brand new toy..

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    The v-series are very easy to figure out on your own and their manuals are very thorough. They are wonderful machines though

    That's one beautiful girl you have! Enjoy! (I'm assuming it's a 'she.' )

    I have the Baby Lock equivalent. Love YouTube for great tutorials. Here are a few links. They have helped me loads.

    Brother Sews on YouTube has lots of great tutorials.

    Meant to add: CONGRATULATIONS!!! She's a beauty.

    You may want to check youtube for an instructional video on your specific machine. I just got a new Pfaff Expression 4.2, and on youtube is a 1 hr 19 min official video on my machine. It is wonderful and explains everything with good close up pictures. Makes the manual a whole lot easier to understand.

    I have a brother SQ9000 I paid a small amount for with 80 stitches (why I bought it) and I love it. Have other machines but like the fancy stitches, and no room to set more machines up. Enjoy your new machine and we will look for pictures of your masterpieces you make on that beauty.

    I'd kill to have that long throat! Good for you! Definitely take a class, but play with it a while first. Figure out the easy stuff and get comfortable with it first. You'll get more out of your lesson that way!

    The learning curve on Brother machines is pretty easy. The manuals have lots of pictures, and the machines are wonderful. Jump right in!

    And she is a real beauty! I always read the whole booklet and fry my brains for a day. LOL.... But, it is amazing how much you learn that way.
