Sewing machine! New, actually 6 months old now.

My last sewing machine was an Ulna and it was an extraordinary machine. I loved it and it was so good to me. It was almost 40 years old when it just gave up. I was hoping it would last longer. It journeyed with me through making many many things including jackets make from sweatshirts, and 19 quilts for grandchildren. Now please contain yourself, these quilts were near the size of a twin bed, not a full sized quilt. If you are interested in learning more about these quilts, under comments enter your email, asking for more informaiion. They are not normal quilts.

The new sewing machine! I have to admit it has been a bit of a learning curve for me. Mainly because I am left handed, very left handed and I had to learn to use my right hand a bit more than I anticipated. I am slowly adjusting. It is very light weight and so easy to carry in it’s case. So important as we age, because the lighter the better. Especially if you belong to a sewing group and want to bring your machine.

The machine has 60 built in stitches and came with a very detailed instruction booklet with lots of pictures explaining more of the detail needed. Since I am not a sophisticated sewer I did not want a machine that did everything, but cough, and cost so much I would feel guilty if I did not learn to use it properly. However I did want to learn more about sewing with knits and other types of fabric. Only time will tell how durable the machine will be.

I have so far made 20 decorative hang over the oven handle towels. I do mean decorative. They are just for show and the themes so far have been Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Still learning the proper finished up techniques. Also made a table runner out of scraps and a couple of table clothes.
